Knittin' Along

I made a couple of more bags. They are both made with Patons SWS. The stripey one is Natural Geranium, and the solid is one of the new fall colors, Natural Berry. The solid bag takes 2.5 balls, so I used the half ball to do the i-cord on the diagonal bag. It was raining when I took the pictures so I had to do them inside. More accurate color over here.

I also made a Bernat Black Lites scarf for the store. I marked this yarn down from $4.99 to $3.99. There isn't a lot of yardage in a ball, and it hasn't sold very well. I thought maybe something knit with it may help move some of it. I only had two balls, so it isn't a very long scarf. (By the way, these yarns are all discounted. Most of them were $4.99 now $3.99. Bernat Black Lites, Haven, Eye Lash, Patons Grace, Cha Cha, Brilliant. Patons Silverlash was $6.49 now $4.99. Bernat Disco was $5.49 now $3.99. I'll check tomorrow to see if I missed one. Can't remember if it was eight or nine yarns marked down.)

I went to Knit Nite last night. I finished a dishcloth there, and when I came home I started work socks for step FIL for Christmas. They are made with Briggs & Little Tuffy in Red Mix and Smoke. I'm using their Heavy Socks pattern. It's a quick knit on 3.25mm needles. I'd like to make him another pair, too. (I have six of the twelve Christmas gift dishcloths knit. I will take a picture of all of them when they're done a post. Kinda boring.)

I've been getting a lot of nice compliments on the sweater I finished for the store. I'd really like to see it become a Christmas gift for someone sometime soon!
I think I forgot to mention, too, that I finally got around to activating the free three-month gym membership I had. I really like it so far. I'm trying to get up at least four days a week. So far, so good.
Back to the work socks.
Happy knitting!

Congrats to you on getting to the gym - keep it up!!
And, I'm with you on the "no snow till Christmas" thing. I'd be happy not to see anymore until then :)

The new bags are great, nice and bright!
I hope you enjoy your gym membership. Good idea to start before Christmas instead of the new year when everyone else signs up.

Your knits are beautiful as always - I especially love the scarf - beautiful colours!

I totally adore that striped bag! Awesome!!

Hubby hopes he doesn't see any more snow while we live here, especially now that he already sold the tractor and plow blade (prematurely, obviously!). The kids and I, on the other hand, love snow. It makes everything so clean and pretty, and makes everyone appreciate handknits that much more!
