Yarn Along – Summer Bag and Summer Reading

I kept coming across “yarn along” from other blogger I was following and finally took the time to see what it was.  What a great idea!  Post our work one Wednesday to keep you motivated to keep at you projects!!!  So here is my first “Yarn Along” post!

IMG_20130717_190051_035I am working on another Kitchen Sink Bag.  My sister say my first one on Facebook and wanted one.  I decided to switch yarns for this one.  The Lion Brand Cotton ease is so soft and has great colors, but the bag came out way to stretchy.  The first one was HUGE and won’t hold it’s shape….but it is still a great boat bag for towels etc.

So for this one, I am trying out the Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, it is 100% cotton instead of cotton and acrylic.  I am also making the bag a little smaller (cast on 60 not 76 stitches) in hopes that it will be a better size bag.

My other most recent bag (from old stash Lion Brand Cotton Ease) cam out pretty good.  For this one, I only cast on 50 and it is a prefect size for a market bag.  I did some how get the handle perpendicular to where it should of been, but it still looks great.

    Excellent results. Just got my long hair cut also, maybe I should have gone a little shorter like you did. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music
