Here's what's been on the needles this week. In addition to the mini stockings (ahem...we're on day 21—and am frightfully behind) and the mystery sock (fun, fun, fun!), I have been working on a new treat bag for the little lad. This project super easy and it worked up in a twinkling. Admittedly, I did do some ripping after the lad and I consulted and he informed me that the design might be nicer if the bat didn't have eyes (he was right, btw), and I did have to rearrange some of the yarn overs in my original design so that the batty pattern would be easily recognizable in this thick yarn, but other than that it just flew off the needles. Now I know that Halloween is just 10 days away (we're counting them over here), but this really does zip up and if you have the inclination and a little bulky wool in your stash, you could have this done in a flash.
Okay the name of this bag—Going Batty—isn't just about the pattern motif. I am having a bad computer day—problems importing this pattern here, but I wanted to post it here today—it's important to have a goal.
