The past couple days I've been pulling everything together for Knitting Weekend. I loaded the truck yesterday and am driving down later this morning to set up my booth. Last night just when I was getting ready to call it a day, I realized I'd forgotten one little thing - bags. Shoppers need bags. To be fair, many shoppers bring their own bags, but I have to be prepared for those who don't.
When it comes to bags, I keep it simple with kraft paper bags, but I do like to dress them up a bit.
I've decorated these utilitarian bags in different ways, but my current favorite is a little bit of curling ribbon. Instead of knitting last night, I was cutting and curling.
Here's a little fun as we head into the weekend - Knit In Public Bingo. I'm always knitting in public. It's a great conversation starter, but I have heard some wacky comments. Now I know I'm not the only one.
Onions. It's nearly impossible to make soup without onions. The other day I decided to make soup, but I was out of onions. I hate grocery shopping even if it's for just one item, but the soup needed onions, so I made the trip. To my pleasant surprise I saw these lovelies - my color inspiration for the week.
A bright splash on a gray winter day.
