Like buses........

Thats what my blogging is like........Nothing for 10 days or so then 6 entries in as many days!

So whats this one going to be about? Hmmmmm, I was tagged by Marylyn, my last SP spoilee, she can be found at, she posted about "What was in her knitting bag" then challenged me to do it too. So here goes.......

My knitting bag is actually a baby changing bag! I think it is great coz it has several compartments with inner pockets and outer zipped pocket and a side pocket where I keep my mobile and car keys. It came with a small black material bag and a clear flat plastic holder. It is quite large and totally amazed me with what I actually had in it. I also have 2 further clear plastic holders where I keep all sorts of stuff!!!!!

OK, what are the contents of my knitting bag?

2 Knitting magazines
3 clear plastic holders filled with stuff ( see later)

Impressive! Of course mine was so minimalist because it's new. The rest of my needles wouldn't bear showing. Also the side of my chair is a dump of plasic bags, magazines and what was once an artfully arranged basket of yarns, there I confessed!

Well, well, well. I sure wish I'd seen this before I shipped your package. Something not exactly the same, but in the same family. Durn. You'll have fun anyway. your SP8
