I have a big birthday coming up. Believe it or not I turn 30 in eight days. So because this is such a huge “milestone” or so I’m led to believe, I decided to treat myself to “practical” yet “useful” and “beautiful” birthday presents, all knitting related (of course.)
First up. My knitting bag. It is an Amy Butler Sweet Life bag, Sanibel in Forest.
Oh sure… its dimensions are bigger than my chest, but… it’s incredibly utilitarian and beautiful to boot! I could not resist.
Much to the chagrin of my children I have been using them as my swift while I hand wound skeins of yarn, and all without paying them. I wonder if I’m breaking any international child labor laws? After five years of this abuse, I finally broke down and bought myself a ball winder and swift! I celebrated this amazing event by winding three skeins of yarn last night… at home…. OMG! How absolutely thrilling.
Please excuse the background mess. We had just finished dinner.
