Yes, The Scissors are There for a Reason
The scissors, then (hey, is scissors spelled correctly? Because it just doens't look right to me) are used for measurement...that is, so you can see how big the bag was BEFORE felting and then the compare to the AFTER. It's what geologists do. Thus, being married to a former geologist has a few perks.
But I'll use it anyway. I'm not sure that stuff won't come spilling out of it, but maybe I'll just use it as a knitting bag. Because really? I have enough stuff to take to Madrona. I'll just wear my Lady E and my clappy and call it a day.
Lots of WIPs here. In addition to the SLP and two pairs of socks, I want to finish at least three hats for Kate (maybe four) (taking hat stuff to Madrona) AND I have homework for Madrona...six 'samplers' (aka large ass swatches), four out of alpaca and two out of wool. Ten inches, dear readers, ten inches square these samplers need to be. Three are done. One is on the needles. They will be done.
And...I spun yesterday, for the first time in months. Months. Since I'm taking a spinning class next Friday, I figure that I should at least put up a good front of being a Spinner.
