the domestic sphere

my dalliances with all things domestic


good day.

Have you ever read Lilly and the Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes? Well this bag is green and it doesn't play a jaunty tune, but I feel almost as excited as Lilly was about her bag. And look how well it goes with my jacket! (The jacket I've had for years... I think I bought it at the same thriftstore as the purse though... hmm.) Not that I have a lot of occasion to wear such an ensemble, but they're waterproof and will definitely perk up any outfit.

On top of the plastic purse, I had a very successful thrift outing (I didn't find any furniture, though; that would have been too lucky), finding two pairs of shoes that fit, a long black cardigan, a funky bright jacket that goes great with my orange dress (and the new pink sandals!) and three good, basic, wardrobe enhancing shirts. And icing on the cake -- when I walked out of the thrift shop, guys from a radio station i actually listen to were there giving stuff away. got a tshirt and some stickers.

And here's the Kureyon mitered-square to-be-felted bag. The row of three squares is the bottom, the four larger squares are one side. This is exactly two skeins of yarn. I think i'll end up using at least four to get this done. And it's not going to be a huge bag. it's about 14 inches on a side unfelted.

Nonetheless, it's been a fun project and i think the bag will be very cool when done. Once it's done and the kinks have been worked out, i'll give out the pattern.
