Snowed In

Well today was all about SNOW! Over 12 inches. My husband got stuck in our driveway so we dug out and stayed home! I took full advantage of the time and completed 2 knit bags.

The rectangular one is a little different from my usual style. I used a pattern from "Great Knitted Gifts" and reworked it a little. I never done a pattern before and it was not near as difficult as I thought. My daughter has claimed this bag and I am very complimented that she wanted it at all!

The second bag was just a quick bag I knitted up in the round, lined it with jeans and added an old belt for the strap. Recycled recycle! Ann's Recycled Treasures!

Stay warm and safe!


  1. Well, I can see why your daughter wanted it, both of them are just great.

  2. Ann, I love that pattern , the squares, is there a book? ,

  3. Yes, the pattern came from the book "Great Knitted Gifts" by Andrea Shackleton & Gayle Shackleton. The original pattern was for a larger bag. They have several more great patterns that I am going to attempt soon.

  4. Thanks so much, I knit and crochet also, but you know how it is, sometimes you need another whole lifetime to do all the things in your head. But I may get to knitting again after all.
