Reversible Fabulosity!

I was mucking around on Ravelry and I found this thread talking about sewing their stuff. Well, this one girl wanted to make bags, so everyone started pitching in their two cents. Her sweet baby ended up buying her a book, but nestled in all the two cents flying around was a fantastic link to making a reversible boxy bag. So click away I did and here's what I've made!
And seeing as I love to love me some obsession, I've cut enough fabric to make maybe twelve more? And you KNOW that doesn't even dent my fabric stash. I'm thinking, this could be a wonderful way to get ahead on some presents and also just bags around for me to put my stuff in.
A reversible fabulosity for a sock project, don't ya think? And remember, all four pictures are of the same bag, just turned out the other way.

Stitch Marker Happiness!

I have gone to town baby! I started making stitch markers and then I just couldn't stop! I made some for me, for my friend Giuia who's so far away on the East Coast. I made some for my friend Kirstie who I've never met, but she's so nice and lives in Wear and Tyne! Isn't that funny? It's sounds like some kind of clothes store, or a fashion related holiday (say it fast!).
Anyhow, here's plenty o' pictures! I made small ones for people who make socks, regular size ones and some with big loops for big needles or when you're making lace apparently. I dont' know. I haven't made anything lacey.
OH! And the orange and black ones are for Stitch N Pitch at the SF Giants this summer! So cool, right? It's a secret, so shhhhhhh. But if Pam, Manuela, Beth, Terri or Michaela are reading this, try and act surprised! Hee hee.
