Last weekend when I was home visiting my family, my mom brought out a box of random stuff she was getting rid of.  She said something like “I doubt you guys would want any of this junk, but I thought I’d ask.”  But look what was in the box!  This knitting bag used to belong to my great grandmother, who I remember dimly from when I was a kid.  Ok, it’s a little beat up, but it’s awesome!  My response was “oh yes Want want want the yarn yarn yarn bag!”  I think that the repetition of the word yarn is what takes it from merely nifty to truly awesome.  It reflects how excited some of us can get over the idea of yarn.  I wonder if grandma Murray made this herself.

Also, I promised a picture of my crochet chicken yesterday, so here he is.  I did end up deciding to list him on etsy.  I might make another one for my dad closer to xmas.  Maybe a bigger one, or at least in more dad-favorite colors.
