There Are Wizards In My Tub

Yesterday I was on some official Hogwarts business! I finally decided to go nuts and dye up some variegated skeins for each of the four houses. And what do you get?! A shower that looks like this:

And which is my favorite colorway? I have to say.. its Slytherin. I just love how the colors came out! These would just be the most perfect grumpy day socks :) All of these are going to posted either tonight or tomorrow at Sunshine Yarns so stop by and see if there are any you like. Remember, these are all variegated skeins.

And, yes, more knitting. I knit up this little bag yesterday to put the Go With the Flow socks in to create a nice little giftie. You can never make enough of these.. This is my third one!

Pattern: Soft Drawstring Pouch from Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca Silk in Natural
Measurements: About 7" tall and 6" wide (the small size)
Started: December 12, 2005
Finished: December 12, 2005
Other Details: Love the yarn! I have used it many times before, and just can't get enough. The only part of the pattern I changed was the drawstring. I knit it using with US 4 dpn's rather than US 6 dpn's.. only because I couldn't find my size 6's!

Oooh, you've been busy. I love the colors of the sock yarn and that bag is adorable. I'll have to remember that pattern for the next time I need a little something special.

WOW, the bathtub scene is great =) I love the little bag, too, I've been meaning to do some of those, but haven't - too many ideas and only 2 hands - I bet you know that feeling. I divided the Rock Creek to get ready for starting my next sox, but I'm using it as a lure to getting about 2 or 3 other projects done, so I haven't started it yet. It's just wrong that I have to TRICK myself into doing things =)
