Whatcha-makin' Bags

Hello there. I've been tied up in yarn lately, and haven't had a chance to post. But I saw a pic of a fabulous project bag featured on this blog. And have been daydreaming about it ever since. My friend, who happens to own my LYS called to ask if I had any knitting totes. I didn't at the time, but I quickly got to work throwing these together...
They are all lined with vintage bed linens - the outer materials are some vintage and some new , but I think they came together quite nicely.

I acquired some vintage linen/lacey stuff, and wasn't quite sure what to do with it, I think it made some very stylish new tags for these bags, what do you think?

Anyway, if you're in the market for a bag to carry your latest project in, you can find these bags and more at Puffy Mondae's - their grand opening is this weekend.

Here's a peek at these soakers I've been working on ... #6 is missing... because he's not finished yet.

These are curly purly soakers, I highly recommend the pattern - although I only use 2 sizes of needles instead of 3, and they seem to work great.

I can't wait to to show you what I'm up to - in my quest to organize the pile of toys my kids have accumulated! It's going to be GREAT.

Those bags would be adorable hanging on a rod, or sitting on my floor. Or anywhere I might happen to be with my yarn any time of day or night. I like them.
