National PJ Day

Plastic Bag Rehab
I stumbled upon this tutorial a while back and ever since I've been wanting to make one of these bags, basically a fabric bag using the pattern of a plastic store bag. Mine isn't perfect but it'll serve the purpose it is intended for. I can't help but think my Grandma would have loved one of these, she always toted things around in those nasty plastic bags. Kyle & I have been making a conscious effort not to use plastic bags from stores if we don't need to. The other day I had a cashier look at me like I was an alien when I told her I wouldn't need a bag.

I finally managed to finish the first bootee. I changed yarn to the squishier lighter green and then last night I got stumped at one point in the pattern. Kyle came home from Target with Guitar Hero for our Wii and knitting was all over for the night.
Isn't it interesting, when you have something you really should be working on you manage to do everything but? Maybe it's just me...

Ooh! I really like that bag!!

You're not the only one not getting done what needs to be done. I have a pile of laundry as big as this room that needs to be folded. What am I doing? Blogging and reading blogs. Hah!
