Aren't they cute?

Here is the second batch of Sockapalooza 4 Bags, all ready to be packed and shipped:

I told the third batch to stand up straight!

It has been so much fun to see all of the different combinations that people have made! Yes, I am having a lot of FUN!

Don't you want one? Just go to, and create a bag that I sew just for you!

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness!

On Tuesday I launched . Using Sockapalooza 4 themed Moda Funky Monkey fabric I am letting people choose their own fabric for their bag. I started selling them at $10 and then realized that $12 was much more sensible (and profitable). I posted about it here and on the Sockapalooza 4 pligg. In less than 48 hours I have sold sixteen bags!

Okay, I was going to tell this whole story (yes, Anne-Marie, there is always a story), but I have bags to sew and I have a feeling there may be a lot more bags to sew! Because Alison, of The Blue Blog, author of Charmed Knits: Projects for the Fans of Harry Potter (which I own), the whole organizer of Sockapalooza 4, bought one of my bags! I sent her the invoice like everyone else and then e-mailed her to ask if it was okay if I blogged about her buying one of my bags. She not only said that I could blog about it, but she said that when she gets the bag she is going to blog about it!!!

I think I am going to need more fabric!

Knit on the Fourth of July

I have been meaning to knit a sweater for I decided that the Fourth of July was perfect. I realize it is simple and small, but a finished object in about 90 min. (I am a slow seamer) is preaty cool! Oh, and you don't sew in those two ends - there are used to tie all of the sweaters together.
I have a ton of extra Red Heart left over, so if you want to knit one let me know and I'll give some "Heart".
