Sacks 'n Socks

I seem to be hooked on making little gifts at the moment. It's also a great way to use up some odds and ends.

I made this little soap sack from some left over Moda Vera cotton/bamboo. I didn't have enough yarn to knit the full pattern so I skipped quite a few rounds but it was still large enough for a lovely little block of fragrant soap.

Then I decided to use up the last bit of 8 ply Bendigo Woolen Mills cotton on this Shetland Shopper.

And of course I had to knit something out of my new Cat Bordhi book so I knitted my first learning socks - the Little Sky Sock.

Before I launch into my first pair of full blown socks, I need to finish these Firestarters.

I'm knitting as fast as I can!

the shetland shopper looks really great - now that South Australia is getting rid of plastic bags i may have to make a few of these to use :)

The shopping bag looks like a great way to use up some cotton. Might have to make some of those. I love the little soap bag too, what a great way to use up some scraps.
