I can't stop knitting these bags ...
Every day, even when I am really busy, I try to do a few rounds on a bag. I talk about them to everyone I know, whipping the current bag in progress out of my ever present knitting bag, stogged full of cotton (you know, in case I finish the bag I'm working on, and can cast on a new one ... the sign of one fully obsessed).
I've even been dreaming about them ... I wake up wondering if the strap should be modified to be ribbed, instead of garter, and if the people I dreamed I gave bags to would really like one in real life. I've been buying cotton like there is no tomorrow (and like I am able to whip up a bag in an hour or two ... which isn't likely - but I have enough yarn stockpiled now that if the yarn store closed for a few days, and my car was broken down too, I could get through without the possibility of having to stop knitting the Grrlfriend market bags until all was right in the knitting world).
I am trying to get a bunch of them done up for Christmas and Fall birthdays coming up in my circle of friends and family (and maybe try a few at a craft sale in the Fall)... but I like each of the ones I have made so much, that I am having trouble saving them until Christmas or Fall - they keep making their way into my purse to use at the store.
Details about these 2 are on my Ravelry project page.
(Edited to add - If you've been in my kitchen before, you'll probably be wondering about the chair ... and the floor. We just did a "kitchen transformation - new paint, new hardwood floor - birch - and new kitchen table set - pub style stools and high table. I am lovin' it!).
