The first FO of 2008

It isn't a sock! Although it is sock-related, it isn't even knitting.

It's a sock bag! It all started when I saw Cathy's sock bag on our trip to WEBS. It was a totally different design, but the outside was the rose fabric and the lining was the stripes. And of course I loved it. And that is so not a "me" type of fabric that she thought I was making fun of it at first!

But I have apparently come down with some sort of pink-liking illness. In any case, she said maybe she would make me a bag like hers but it turned out that she did something even better - on Friday I went to her house and she helped me sew my own!

There were some in progress pics on her camera that I will share later, and perhaps the source of the pattern because I don't know what it is, I just remember that she bought it in Northampton.

I am really really happy with it. I've only completed a small number of sewing projects and this one was by far the most complicated - it's lined and has a zipper, and there's topstitching. But I did it! And it's already on active duty carrying my latest secret socks-in-progress.

Very pretty and I'm glad to see that you have one now. Good for certain fairies to know about. They're still flitting. The fairies, that is. I don't know what the hold up is. One of them said something about being held up in MN. I don't know what she's talking about. At any rate, as soon as those lazy fairies get their heads together I'll be sending out a magical package, just for you!

It's me - I'm contagious!!! You come in contact with me an you suddenly start liking pink, and you don't know why. I've done it with two of my roommates too. ;)

I love that little bag, very cute and very practical
