Hedgehogs Follow Me Around

If you were looking closely at my pictures from Boston, you caught a glimpse of my new knitting bags. These are particularly special ones, as Sibling-the-Elder custom made them for me. Yes, I know, I'm an extremely lucky hedgehog. They are fantastic and several people have inquired about them already.

First up was a box bag that has fabric she commissioned. (No, I won't trade you siblings.)


Funky hedgehogs!!

And the lining fabric goes excellently with it. Currently it's holding a project I've been neglecting in hopes that wanting to show off the bag will prompt some actual knitting.

Next up, another box bag of hedgehog delight


That's the one that went with me to Boston. I was so scared I'd lose it on my first trip traveling with it, I was constantly checking to make sure I had it. Presently it's still holding that baby sweater that I need to finish up.

Finally, a bag that I expect to get a lot of wear out of this summer:


It's more hedgehogs but it's a larger, bucket style bag. Check out the top.


And she put two straps on it--both removable--either a shorter matching "ribbon" handle and a longer cross body strap.  I see a lot of possibilities to toss a sock and my wallet in and go.

She said the corners and zippers were a learning experience! I couldn't tell you the last time I lined something, probably college, so I am thrilled to have these.

Thank you Anna!!

I can only hope that it's easier for the staff at The Loopy Ewe to grade our Academy homework than it is for me to wrangle Blackboard.  ...
