Mmmmmm... Why Do I Do This???

Ok... I LOVE Rice Krispie Treats. And I LOVE M&M's and the two of them together... well, just plain yummy. My question is why I even make them. 1. I am the only one in the family that really cares for them 2. I need the calories like I need a hole in the head. 3. I think I am going to have the willpower to leave them alone.. but obviously I don't. (This picture was taken just a bit ago and there is even more gone since then... and I am the only one home!!!)
So I will cut what is left and take them to someone who 'needs' them....




A few more bags to show you today. This is a Vintage Bubble Bag that I am growing quite fond of. May need to keep it for myself!! It is made with Paton's new varigated wool that I have been aching to see how it felts up. I double stranded it with a plain color and it made a wonderfully thick material. Have decided to do longer, knotted handles that can be adjusted if desired. Also, I started a new Vintage Bubble Bag and adjusted the pattern so it has a bottom to it. Making it from the bottom up instead of from the top down. Excited to see how it comes out!!








This is another bag made with the new Paton's varigated wool. I also double stranded this... tried to match the colorways in the yarn... it was a bit off, but not bad. Am going to make the same bag single stranded and compare how it is size wise and thickness wise. I'll keep you posted.....






The third bag is a small bag that I made with Paton's wool and Noro Kureyon. It is almost like a booga bag. It felted wonderfully and is very very sturdy. The dark purple almost overshadowed the beautiful colors in the Noro yarn, but still a fun bag.












Introductions: Well, last time I introduced my oldest son. Here he is again (on the left) with our middle son, Aaron (on the right). Isn't it amazing how different 2 children can be??? Can you tell which one produces more laundry??? Fortunately, they are both in college and do their own laundry. (In theory, of course, it still often comes home for mom to do!!!)

I LOVE my boys!!!




Parting shot: This is Hoover. He is an alpaca that lives next door. He makes me smile!

Oh my, I just checked out your whole blog...I love your bags!!! I see you started your blog a couple weeks before mine, and all for the sake of knitting. I've only just begun but I'm definitely stuck on bags!
