Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Some assembly required....

Lest you think I have NOT been knitting and have been playing in my craft room (and you would be partially correct)... I have been playing with the Bond Knitting machine.

I machine knitted the back for the Huckleberry Bag and then I machine knitted the 100 rows for the Bond Styx Bag (pattern courtesy of SuKnitWitty).

The assembly part is sewing the side seams and knitting/crocheting the handles. And with some help from my very best friend, I'll line both the bags with some totally awesome material!!

I used J C Brent Marble Chunky and Lion Brand Jiffy

I added a ribbing at the top...and now have to add it to the other top before sewing the side edges.

It was great fun knitting this bag on the machine! I can see LOTS of unfinished bags in my future if I get too carried away with just the knitting part and don't do the assembly part, lol!

Thanks for visiting my blog...I see you love the Bond, I love the colorway you used. My mom has a knitting machine with electric carriage on it that has been under her bed for 10 years...I'm itching to try it now that I'm an addicted knitter.
Have fun....I'll be back to visit often.
