ziggy zaggy

zig zag

Even though this scarf is still on the needles, I blocked part of it last night just to see how it was going to turn out. Impatient knitter! But I'm glad I did it--I like it so much, now I'm really motivated to finish it.

The Trekking Pro Natura, a wool/bamboo blend, makes a scarf that's light and airy. Feels really good, and it will be even softer once I soak the whole thing in Euculan before the final blocking.

mesh bag

Last night I finished the 2-color market bag waiting for trick-or-treaters. Although this project got a really slow start, I ended up liking the stitch pattern. Maybe I'll use it in the future.
This bag will keep its shape a little better than the meshy ones, but that means that it will not expand to hold as much, either. I'll just have to try it out and see.
