When I remember to get them out of my trunk I've been trying to bring bags with me to the grocery store.
The other day I was looking at my giant basket of dishcloth yarn and thinking what can I do with all this other than making dishcloths with it. I went to Ravelry (where else) and put in Sugar N Cream and started looking at what everyone was doing with it. I found market bags. Great idea for me. I could use up the dishcloth yarn on something so useful. I found a bunch and sent all my possibles to a friend and this is the one she was going to try out. That helped me decide so here's the first of hopefully many. It took a full skein of the large ball of Lion Cotton and I did make it a bit shorter than the pattern called for but I knew it would stretch out.
(Sarah, do ya want one?)
Here are some of the other patterns I'm hoping to try out:

WOW is all I can say. Chris sent the most amazing things and said in the note that he wanted to keep it all himself. I'm sure glad he didn't. First, chocolate licorice......oh yum. I couldn't wait to taste it but had to take a picture first. Two bars of Dagoba chocolate. If you ever see them, you have to try them. I've had the lavender before but never the mint. Again, yummmmmmmmm. Malibrigo yarn - it's so funny, I've been seeing it on blogs all over the place lately. I checked it out online and found a store nearby that sold it. I've gone to that store twice this week and it's been closed due to an illness in the family. And now I have some in the most perfect colors. It is as soft and nice as everyone says. He also sent personalized stationary, Knitpicks DPN's, cucumber/melon hand lotion, a cucumber candle (one of my favorite scents), three skeins of bamboozle yarn in the prettiest purple and blue, and last but not least a crafty alien hedgehog kit. I have never seen those and I can't wait to make him. Chris, you outdid yourself!!! Thank you so much!!!!
