Now that all three kids are playing soccer I am spending A LOT of time at soccer games on the weekends. I needed something simple to make so I could continue to focus on the games so I started another Sophie bag. I love this pattern, it's easy, quick, doesn't take a lot of yarn but looks really nice when it is done. I am using some Paton's soy yarn and I'm really enjoying it. I am interested to see how it felts both because I haven't used this yarn before and because the colors are so light. I learned awhile ago that dark yarns felt better and quick than light yarns and this bag is pretty yarn. However, I really haven't gotten that far and the season is almost over . . . Last weekend the little man and I took a behind the scenes tour of the San Francisco zoo and had a wonderful time. We saw the lemurs up close, got to feed a bottle to a baby giraffe, pet a koala, went to the back of the bear cages and fed celery to a rhino. I's so glad we did it. Here is the little Koala we met. He was very soft with thick, thick fur - ever heard of koala yarn? I bet it would be wonderful. Check out Fryday Photo for another zoo photo.
