The bag folded in quarters here.
I started the bag last night.... 3 times... LOL First I was crocheting into the stitch like normal not in the spaces... then I oopsed on the # of stitches. But it turned out well!
And that was today's work.
On another note, I think the car is sold! :)

This is the progress so far on them 2x2 Ribbed Ragg Hiker socks.
Socks I made for uncle M... He loves home made things... I hope he loves these socks... When I manage to get them to him... :D Work, Work, Work. Here hubby is putting bolts in the last 4 sheets. I will try and take an in progress pic of a roof for you next time..... We have both of these roofs done now and the one bin is actually done on the hopper cone... HOOORAYY!!! One down... 23 to go. Then the next yard!
Hopper cone town.. We built the hoppers and tucked them in the back there... we will put bins on them there too... right now we have them pulled all over to clean the snow out so it's easier for me with the ladder... sweet hubby of mine, thinking bout me on that ladder in the snow! But will have them pushed back close to what you see here... don't worry I will try to take more pics...

At your worst, you are: childish and over indulgent
You drink coffee when: you're craving something sweet
Your caffeine addiction level: low
Give it a try here!

Well, I got out of town today and halfway to my destination. I picked up some yarn that a lady was selling... there are some fun colours in there.. I will take pictures when I get home with it. I also ordered a neato knitting book off etsy.. when I get it I will show you. I listed a bunch of knitting magazines and such on my etsy store ------> you can check them out while I'm away... :D Tomorrow. I will hang out with my uncle.. very fun and my mom... very fun... then I have to be in Tugaske early enough to deliver supper to my honey. He will be heading up tomorrow.. Sure has warmed up. Yesterday it was a wopping -32cel and today it was -2o something cel when I left home and by the time I got to the city it was -11cel. Tonight at 10pm it was a whopping -1cel. Beautiful! We went to the bookstore.. very fun! Love to look at all the books in there.... and drool on some you know how it goes! While in the bookstore... LOL I heard a guy(sounded like he yelled) say to his other party "want me to go start the car so it will warm up?" LOL I felt like saying back "it's warm enough out it won't have to run long to get warm." It was beautiful out.. but I didn't say it.. just in case they had a new baby with them or something or other... Anywho.. that's my excitement... Off to work tomorrow.... Catchya when I get home.. or if I find myself near a puter maybe sooner!
((hugs to you all!))

Too cold for anything more.. though, the temperature is cold -32cel when I got up at 8:30, it doesn't feel so bad with there being no wind chill.. mind you step out into the wind your going to freeze yer ass off!!!
Well, will talk to you later!

And these ones are neat too...... though I think they would be house socks for sure... don't know how a cable that size would feel in a shoe!! LOL
I had great plans to get in my crafty room and do some sorting around... but, it didn't happen... LOL there is still stuff everywhere.. I found other things to ocupy me.. like a walk in the cold(see losing my weigh-other blog). I also put a few rows on that sock. I got tangled up in that Puzzle quest game for a bit... and that's about all... So, catchya later if I remember what I wanted to tell you all this morning....(my brain is a bit on vacation) LOL

Well, when I started knitting, I also started a notebook. I wrote down what I made, what size, what yarn, and what needles I used. That way when I gave it away, I knew how to make another if it was so requested. I have now learnt that if you alter the pattern in any way shape or form remember to write that down too! And yes I know, Lots of us know that tip... but some may not...
And a second. I love this one. I read it in a sock book. When knitting in the round, Swap your first and last stitches to create a complete round, rather than having that gap or trying to pull it tight enough.. Makes it soooo much easier to start out!
Other such: Knitting Mojo, I think it is hiding in the vest.... I knit the gusset decrease for that sock then lost my way again... I went into the crafty room to sew, but I got caught on the Bernat Cotton Tots and though.. maybe I should do some crochet? LOL started.. frogged.. started.. frogged... gave up... didn't feel like sewing.. didn't feel like knitting.... so... wandered around on the net.... did some listing of some things I want to get rid of on http://craigslist.ca/ and that ooh wait.. did some laundry rotfl and that was my excitement... I know not exciting at all but that was it...
We are home until thursday.... the weather is just too freaking nasty to work in... so we are home... If I get up to anything fun.. I'll let ya know...

Here you can see the whole zipper flap. I like how the stitching on either side of the zip goes with the pocket I put on the end(see previous bag post) and it holds the fabric away both the liner and the outside so they do not get caught in the zip(which makes me nuts).
Bright blue liner, with the Provincial flowers, Made for a good liner.. nice and bright shouldn't lose stuff in there.. though I bet I will anyways!
Eh, Well, that's the sloppy jean bag... ttfn

I love this sweater... but it is bulky weight and would look bulky and huge on me... but I love the style of the sweater... It looks ooooh so comfy don't ya think?
There was a hat too... but not sure how it would look on my fat head... might find out if I feel like makin it.. though there was a hat and scarf set.... that I liked too.. and a pair of worsted weight sockies... I might have to make... LOL the list in the issue goes on and on I tell ya! LOL Love it...

Above, slung over the chair, below the front.
Above is the back of the bag, Below is the pocket I put on the end. I hope the pocket will hold my cell phone.
I have yet to line the bag. I tried a lining yesterday but it did not turn out so, I think I am going to go basic... very very basic.. and make little pouches for the stuff I dont want others to see.. like pads, advil and all the other crap that runs around the bottom of a purse. I also need to decide how to close it... I don't have a zipper and I think a button will look stupid... so we shall see what happens... I don't know that it will have a falling open problem anyways with the fact that it has a single strap instead of 2... I dunno.. we will see I guess... Let me know whatcha think. K?
Anyways I should run. I finished my 7 in the post below though they aren't very exciting... enjoy! LOL Catchya later!
(btw-spell checker is down.... so my spelling sucks.... forgive me!)

I still have that sock in progress and am working on decreasing the gusset. They were interupted by sewing. And now by a very addictive computer game... ah well..
~ 7 Random Facts Meme~, is going around. I was tagged by Dandy(link at the side). I will not be tagging anyone else, if you want to do it, I would love to hear about it, but if ya don't that's ok. I think it will be fun.. so here I go.
1. I start one project at a time, because I hate unfinished things(they nag me)
2. I love London Fog to drink.(It is earl grey tea, steamed milk, and vanilla syrup)
3. I love books. (it's mom's fault, she taught us to love and respect them) I love having them around me(maybe I think I will get smart through osmosis?). I love leafing through pattern/crafting books I could do it for hours.
4. Flowers make me smile, even pictures of flowers. (I love planting flowers in the spring. LOVE IT! It is tending them I suck at!)
5. I love to sew, but I have to be in the mood, or I don't have the patience.
6. I love to drive, just get in the car and go. (although I have had to spend a lot of time in the car for work/family visits and such. I still love it and could drive to Regina just for a stroll in certain crafty shops - if gas wasn't so damn expensive)
7.I love to shop. I used to love shopping for cloths(my extra weight took the fun out of it). I can browse for hours... (good thing being I don't have to buy to enjoy the browse...)
