so,another accomplishment, i've managed to figure out square bottom bags.  so this year for christmas every one's getting green bags with little lip balm cozies.  that'll be a cute merry christmas.  maybe i'll put hot cocoa or something in them too. . .

ok, haven't been posting in a while...should update.  working on a blanket, may take me a while.  it's knit in garter stitch blocks then at the end it'll be "sewn" together.  i'm hoping to use up the last parts of my yarn skeins.  so it won't be the best looking thing in the world, but i think i'll like it.  i'm doing 10 st squares on 10.5 needles.  i'll be excited when it's finished!!
