I've started my Larger than life bag... I'm still on a yarn diet so I'm using yarn from my stash. .. Yarn that was left over from projects and abandoned projects. .. not yarn goes to waste here..I had the choice of using cotton or wool and I choose wool. First of all I think that wool is lighter and with use tends to cling to itself. . I wouldn't have to worry as much about ends popping out. Cotton tends to feel heavier and doesn't have the memory that wool does...anyway those are my thoughts and why I chose wool over cotton for my bag. The other reason is that I have a larger color selection in wool than I have in cotton. .. That was probably the deciding factor... I took this picture yesterday and have more blocks finished. I'll take more pictures tomorrow.. as I mentioned the other day.. I actually won an invite to ravelry.. my name is apixiegirl if u want to find me..so I have been exploring its many facets.. man u could loose yourself in there and never come out..there were some bugs that were affecting my account and took about a day to clear up..so I did that for 1 full day.. then I started loading projects and checking out all the wonderful projects and things happening there... and so.. there went another day.. ....




While all that was going on I did finish my ribbed lace bolero. I'm pleased with it. Measuring the length was a bit tricky for some reason I think cotton lies.. it likes to be tricky... the result is the finished length is a weee bit longer than I would have liked..

I found you on ravelry, looking at different projects . . . isn't the Larger than Life bag fun? Mine isn't exactly hibernating, I just got sidetracked!

You have a cool blog. See you around the internets!
