Treasure Bag

Work knitting is not just for socks anymore! I knit, ripped, and reknit this treasure bag last week at work. I had a necklace that was in need of its own special place of wooly coziness! I took a little ball of sock yarn that I dyed with koolaid, a set of size 1 bamboo dpns and had at it till it looked a reasonable size. It started with a short row heel, then knit in the round, add YO eyelets, and end with a ruffle. Too easy!

KnitPicks was kind enough to send me some of their new sock yarn. In all my favorite colors even!

L-R: Meadow Multi, Blue Violet Multi, Peacock Mulit, Shale Multi.
Meteor Twist and Dune Twist in the back

I am still knitting on the Chili Pepper Scarf, 37 inches and growing. And the Waterfall socks are almost done.

We had interesting weather this weekend!
The clouds made for a great photo op!

KnitPicks was kind enough?

Were you kind enough to send them some money.

Which yarns are those? I'll be interested in knowing what you think of them.
