A Giveaway

 I have been busy and have my first finished object of 2012 to show everyone. I started this bag on the 1st. I finished crocheting a couple of days ago and this morning I sat down to sew in the lining and finish it. So here it is...
It is fully lined and has a pocket on the inside...
I have intended for it to be used as a yarn/project bag... Here it is full of my latest project...
What do you think should go inside? Well, you could be the one to decide. I am going to have my first Giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment and I will pick a winner on the 12th of January. Good luck.
 The latest project that is in that bag, is a blanket for my Grandmother. Her birthday is on the 13th and I have never made anything for her. There was a big sale at Michael's after Christmas and I got this bulky Homespun for 1/2 price. I started it on Thursday, after I finished the bag. It is half-way done. It works up really fast, with an N hook.
I will get a better photo during daylight. It has purple, blue, cream and green in it. It is really soft.
 I have spent the entire day playing with yarn. After I put the lining in the bag and added a panel to Grandma's blanket, I decided to figure out which colors I needed for my next project. A few days ago I started two CAL's. The first one is on We Love Lucy and it is for Lucy's pattern BLANKET STATEMENT. For this one I am using stash and scraps. The other one is on Citizen's Of Stitch Nation, hosted by Debbie Stoller. For that one I am using only the yarn called for in the pattern. I am waiting for the delivery of Bamboo Ewe. Hopefully this week.
  I started stitching on the We Love Lucy blanket this afternoon. I am following the same pattern just using similar colors and worsted wt. acrylic. Here it is...
I can't wait to get the Bamboo Ewe so I can compare the blankets. He he, I know I am nuts. I have a couple of other things to mention, like an award, but I am going to post about it tomorrow. I want to give it the attention it deserves. So I will see all of you tomorrow.

P.S. Don't forget to comment to enter the giveaway.
