When You Lose Your Needles

I’m working away at my bag jump Ravellenic Game challenge.  It’s almost large enough to start the edging, but not quite.  My biggest obstacle at the moment is that I seem to favor size 8 needles, which means all of my circular needles are in use elsewhere – specifically in one project, my stash busting domino afghan that I’ve slowly been working on (and for some reason have not photographed or written about it).

All of my stitches are getting squished together on double-pointed needles as I work around and around. I am getting more and more worried that I’ll be dropping stitches soon, but I’m almost ready to decrease again, so maybe I’ll be alright.

I really like the pop of green against in the purple berry tones.  I wonder how dramatic it is going to be once the bag is felted.  The shift between the two shades of purple is not as dramatic as I was expecting, so we’ll see.  I’ve decided to try out a zipper closure instead of a button or snap.  I don’t work with zippers much, so this will be a better challenge – stick with me as I push myself over the edge.

Besides the needle obstacle, it’s been a fun, interesting, and quick project (she says before daring the zipper to a duel).  I can’t wait to type it up and offer it to the world!
