Last Day of Knit and Crochet Blog Week - Yarn and Tools

Thank you for stopping by for the final day of Knit and Crochet Blog Week. I've had a lot of fun posting each day, and I hope it's been fun reading these posts. I've had fun reading posts from all over on these topics. If you want to see more posts about these topics, please go to your search engine and type in "knitcroblo" (and then, either a number from 1 to 7 or the letters wc). The last I knew about 300 people were addressing the topics. Today, I'm tackling Day 7's topic of a yarn I love.

I made the raglan sweater with Malabrigo worsted, and I LOVE it. It was SO soft and so cozy that every minute knitting with it was like a little vacation. I have about a skein and a half left over, and I’m having dreamy thoughts about what I could do with that. Maybe some leg warmers for those days in the winter when I’m determined to wear a dress and nylons despite the weather? Hmmmm…..

I’m going to do the wildcard topic here as well: My favorite tool is a Vera Bradley bag my sister-in-law gave me for my birthday a few years ago. It is the perfect size for a ball of yarn, a pattern, whichever book I’m currently reading, and a small-to-medium project. There are pockets along the sides in which I can stash tools (stitch counter, pens, small scissors, crochet hooks, etc.) With a sturdy bottom, I can leave extra needles in the bag. There is a pouch on the outside of the bag that can hold my sunglasses case. This way, it looks as though I’m carrying a purse and not a knitting bag (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

I found you through the Ravelry list! I'm a wannabe quilter and am taking my first class starting tomorrow. Happy crafting!

I have not tried Malabrigo yet, but those new colors definitely make me want to try. I also love your quilting projects. I'm so glad you included quilting in this knitcroblo because... well, love one, you love 'em all, right? :)
