Should I Throw This Bag Out?
Can you be a hoarder of just certain things? Project and notion bags perhaps. So when Thaddeus asks, “Should I throw this bag out?”
What Is Your Answer To “Should I Throw This Bag Out?”
For me, the answer is almost always “no”.
Which is the correct answer…right?
Yes, I have hundreds of project/notion/gift bags around the house. Yes, I often forget what is in them and they go missing for months and/or years at a time. But how can you throw out a perfectly good bag?
Thaddeus ordered some face moisturizing cream. He got a cheap, vinyl, sparkly, pink cosmetic bag for free with his purchase.
He was about to throw it out when I saved it. Thank Dog! I mean it was the perfect size for a sock project or to carry around needles and notions inside a larger project bag.
I put it to good use right away with my current project. But it will probably become a notions/needles bag later on in its life.
So, I ask you. Is this visionary thinking? Or a compulsion for which I should seek professional help?
I finished the other three sizes of Rose’s Fingerless Mitts.
Overall, I’m not overly pleased. I basically just used the pattern for the first three sizes but used worsted weight yarn and US7 (4.5 mm) needles. The resulting fabric is a bit looser than I would prefer. I’ll probably try worsted on US6 (4 mm) needles and see if I like that better.
The other thing that sucks about using two different weights of yarn/needles in a pattern is that Ravelry does’t really let you have two on the published pattern. I think I will only include the smaller three sizes in the pattern with a note on how to make larger sizes.
For me, the two middle sizes fit my hand the best.
Thoughts? Which would you prefer?
