With the craft/studio room decluttered and feeling lighter I was ready to creating. I set out to make a cube style sock knitting bag and ended up taking a detour along the way to this fold down bag that can hold its structure.
What I learned:
- I still want to make a cube style bag
- Using up a super old stash zipper is thrifty....but also leaves my project with a super old stashed zipper. I rubbed it with an old candle so things are moving along a little bit better. Maybe time to declutter the zipper stash a little further.
- One piece of light interfacing between the layers was just right for a pliable bag that will stand up and hold its shape well.
- The height of the bag is great for storing the sock needles straight up.
For knitting this week I turned started the heel on my 2nd sock which I have dubbed the Monogamy Buster. Named because this is the project that crossed me over the line from one project at a time to multiple cast on projects going at once. Having a small travel project like a sock is fun - I see the allure of multiple projects! Especially since my Mondo Blanket has gotten too big to really easily travel with.

Photographing the pile of "someday" project supplies in my studio space. Then setting a deadline to complete them by or donate the pieces. Family movie night is happening soon as well as some outdoor hiking time.
