WIP Wednesday - Granny Bag

Today's project started with reaching into my bin of sportweight yarn and spotting the following three colours nestled together:
Unlikely allies.

These are definitely not three colours that I would normally combine into one project, but with a bit of black between them, it's turning out like funky stained glass.

Granny bag in progress.

On my way home from taking hubby out for lunch this afternoon, I browsed through Generations thrift store and found a bin of "Sassy Singles" (their label, not mine...but I love it!) priced at 5 for a quarter.  (Five cents each!  What did you buy for 50 cents today?)  These are all clip-on earrings.  I learned when making my pomander that clip-on earrings are actually the easiest costume jewelry to work with.

Behold, the merry widows.
I also picked up two novels to add to my bookshelf: Brown Girl In the Ring (a 2008 Canada Reads finalist) and The Sentimentalists (Giller Prize winner).


  1. Those colors look very nice together - it's going to be a pretty bag. :)

  2. I agree - standing alone, I wouldn't put those colors together either - but they look great together with the black.

  3. Thank you! Hopefully I'll be able to finish it by the end of this week!

  4. Love the blue and yellow combo! The colors are stunning together! Thanks for sharing on my WIP Wednesday.

  5. I like color so much, tend to think almost all colors go together. I don't enjoy working with sport yarn, wondering are you doubling it?
