Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

It’s sort of like knitting. Except not.

Posted by Amber on July 12, 2007

Yesterday was an awesome day.  I got a prescription for xanax, new yarn, and my fish food bag!

It’s a bag, made from a fish food sack in Cambodia.  But not in the sweatshop sort of way.  I got it from Webs, but you can also order from Rosie’s Yarn Cellar or direct from Lantern Moon.  A little over priced if you ask me.  I mean sure, Lantern Moon isn’t using a sweatshop, but this morning the very first time I was using the bag, I had tossed my current sock project in there, and one of the needles went straight through the lining, the fish food bag, and into my ass!  (Knitpicks classic size 1s!  Ouch!)  So I guess now I’m going to have to get or make a nifty little project tote (darn!  I know!).  I’m leaning toward making.  Making would be awesome.
