What could be so important to get me out of summer hiatus blogging?? My friend Marty Miller asked if I would be on the blog tour of her latest booklet Totes for All Reasons from Leisure Arts:
Let me tell you, it was hard for me to decided which to make first! What I love about the book is that Marty made each design in the book twice, once in easy to find yarn (from big stores such as Michaels, ACMOORE, etc) but then she made the same design in yarn shop yarn....BRILLIANT!!
We all have those reusable bags that we buy at the grocery store... but how many times have you run into the store for a few things and realize at check out that you've left the bags in your car? That drives me crazy!! What I love about these bags is you can roll them up (besides the felted one) like a pair of socks and put a few in your pocketbook.... they don't take up too much space and will always be there when you need them! I have even given one away to a lady in CVS who gushed over it so much (I think I converted another to pick up the hook again!)
So, my dear friends, in the last waining days of summer I suggest you get this book and make a ton of these bags, they will be perfect gifts for the holiday season - and with school and holidays right around the corner... you are going to be doing a TON of shopping... might as well look sassy while doing it!!
