EP 7: In the bag.

Works In Progress:
-Emilien Hoodie in Cascade 220 & Cascade 200 Heathers on US 7. Hood section is finished, seems a bit big around the ears. Started to pick up stitches for the zipper band but my needle is too short.

-Knit Night socks. Cast on sock #2, did the ribbed cuff and foot. Ready for the heel flap tonight. US 2, Schoeller Stahl Fortissima sock yarn in colorway 53/Wild West.

D's Corner:
-Basic slip stitch heel socks are finished! Blue Ridge Kaleidoscope Superwash on US 2. The yarn got really fuzzy after wearing for just a few hours & even fuzzier after a gentle soak.
-Preemie hat FO in leftover Blue Ridge Kaleidoscope Superwash on US 2.
-New WIP: Magnum Cable Rib Mittens on US 13 in Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Chunky in Charcoal Heather.

-Knit Night sock #1.
-Striped baby hat using scrap yarn. (I frogged the purple & gray preemie hat that was a wipe last week.)
-Chemo cap that turned out too big to be a baby hat :P Knit on US 5 then US 7 out of Baby Bee Pitter Patter yarn.
*Katie from Knittin' on the Fly is collecting purple baby & preemie hats for Click for Babies through mid October.

-Spun 1oz out of 4oz of Superwash BFL from Blue Dog Fibers in the Brenda colorway.

Modifications I made to the Drawstring Project bags.

I was trying to match the size to a bag I already had so here are my changes.

I made the following modifications to get a final bag size of 9 3/4" by 10 1/2":

*Main fabric 24" long and 10.5" wide.
(For the cat bags, I had to cut 2 pieces 12" long because my fabric was wider than it was long. So I added an extra "Step" to seam the two 12" pieces together at the bottom.)

*Lining 10.5" square.

*Only 1 drawstring casing hole instead of two.

*Measured casing hole 1.5" from the seam where the lining piece meets the main piece instead of from the fold because my pieces were different sizes from hers. (This is step #4 in the tutorial.)

Piddleloop-Thanks! I checked and it's working fine through Blip, so something must have happened recently in itunes. I'll work to get that corrected tonight after this week's episode uploads.
