What's in Your Bag?

I'm on day 2 of a 4-day trip. Currently, at the Marriott Airport in Greensboro, S.C.

In addition to my rollerboard and flight bag, I carry my disorganized knitting bag. Many of my fellow crewmembers wouldn't recognize me without my (life-support) knitting bag.

This week, my knitting bag has a wad of patterns: Janet's Waist coat pattern in size M, Stackable Cats, Pile Up Pups, 2 hat patterns (that I'll somehow combine to really throw everyone off), a Noro 10 stitch blanket pattern, a man's scarf pattern and a handful of patterns that Mary Philippe shared with me for possible knit-a-long/classes.

The yarns crammed into knitting bag include 3 skeins of Noro Kureyon (2 for a scarf) and one for a "Fake Isle" Hat. A skein of Brown Sheep Worsted (for "Fake Isle" Hat), a bagful of stash yarn for Stackable Cats, 2 balls of Cascade Lana D'Oro for Shopowners Waistcoat-Size M.

Also included in bag are an assortment of needles. Some circs, some dps and some random assortment of mismatched straights. I really need to organize this mess.

I'm stalled on my hats because I don't have the right size double points. I'm missing the Chart III for Shopowners waistcoat jacket-Size M-so I can't work on that---maybe I'll see if pattern is on-line-I seem to remember some errata. So...It's off to work on Stackable Cats.

See you soon.
