stockinette. blue skies. potato chip yarn.

I really must learn to post more often!

The monkeys have not been worked on in a while...the main reason can't find them. I was cleaning out my tote bag and I put them in a safe place. Ahem...very safe, apparently. I went to take a picture of the progress I had made on them and they have disappeared! I'm sure they will show up soon, I hope they will show up soon!

In the meantime, I have started a French Market Bag from Knitty (that orange blob in the pic above is what I have accomplished so far...I have done all the increases and am currently working on the body)...and I can't wait to felt it! I think it will be a bit deeper than the original (I like to carry lots of stuff) but other than that I am following the pattern. If you need a good knitting project to do while reading a book...this is it! LOOOOTTTSSSS of stockinette. Yep, LOTS.

Did I mention that there was a lot of stockinette in the French Market Bag? I did? Ok, just checking.

Also, I went to the beach the other week with a friend of mine. There literally wasn't a cloud in the sky. Here's a little eye candy for you :)

Just a side note...I now know why people don't knit at the beach...So much salt got on the yarn and my hands that it was like knitting potato chip yarn. If you like crispy yarn feel free to knit at the beach...otherwise I suggest reading a book. LOL.
wonderful = stockinette. blue skies. potato chip yarn. - jj
