Immediate Gratification

Tempted by several Super Bowl Sales in a number of local yarn shops (and I did go to one to buy yarn for my husband’s requested vest), I decided that what I really needed to do was delve into my stash and use up some of the single skeins I’ve bought at previous Super Bowl Sales and never used.

Last year, I bought a skein of Lamb’s Pride Bulky to pair with a single skein of Patons Glittallic that I had gotten from a swap pal. I had the intention then of making the Spiral Rib Bag from One Skein. Never even started, this project was forgotten as others took its place. Now I pondered doing baby hats for Afghans for Afghans (which I may still do), but I looked at the Spiral Rib Bag pattern again and decided to give it a try. I knit with these two skeins held together, and since both are bulky weight, this made for a tight, sturdy fabric. The bag is big enough to use as a sock project bag, it’s really cute! The Glittallic is completely used up and the Lamb’s Pride is now a little oddball.

Mission accomplished! It’s great to finish a project in ONE DAY! Now, back to Lizzy and my socks. The sock weight yarn and size 1.5 needles feels sooooo thin and tiny after the double bulky weight bag!
