It's all about me!

I finished making a knitting bag for myself the other day!

This is the first bag I've made expressly for my own little self in the longest time. Most of the bags and wallets I use are either prototypes or goof-ups.

Very nice and spacious bag! I don't knit, but I've recently been obsessed with making pom poms, just for myself... Thanks for your post on my blog, great to hear from you again.

I really like the material you used for that bag and the style of it. It's blockish but very cool!

And congrats on the rockin' badge! You deserve it! :)
