well, my poncho project is nearing the 15" mark where i shall do the last round of decreasing and then we'll see what happens after its laundered.
at my university they give these cheap red book totes to all the incoming freshmen during their orientation. I dug mine up and have been using it as a knitting bag. its not very nice and people look at me like i'm a lost freshman on campus. so i was looking everywhere for a good pattern for a knitting bag since i'm not sure enough to start making my own patterns. i really liked the 'unbiased' recycled silk hobo bag from knitty.com but i didn't really want to order any yarn. i also wanted some yarn for some other projects. this led to a trip to the local joann store. i really like joann's website and i think they are a good company but our local store was pretty disgraceful. there wasn't just one section for the yarn and i couldn't find where they kept any of the regular patons brand or fancy bernat brand. not only that but each location for yarn only had enough space for like 10 skeins. enough for an afghan pretty much would wipe out a whole color.
