Weekend Update

I spent a little time this weekend cleaning up my knitting room. This is both good and bad. The good part is that it looks a lot better and I found things. The bad part is that there are a lot of things I want to knit that NOW!

The only answer is to knit more...
I finished this cute little Koigu Beaded Bag: 1 skein of Koigu (175 yards of fingering). The pattern is called Exploring Stripes and is a free pattern on Ravelry. I modified the number of beading rows. It calls for beading every 7th row. I increased the number of stockinette rounds by 1 round each pattern repeat.
Tis' the season for accessories. We needed a new sample of my Infinity Wrap for the store. I've had my eye on Lang Mosaico for a while now. I'm knitting it together with a like colored skein of Gioello to give it a little sparkle. I'm very happy with the results.
I'm designing a sock in the same pattern stitch for the "glove with no name".
