I am working on an article for my blog that will begin a series that helps folks use their stash for little gifts and such. My mother is an avid Scrabble player and she has an old game that still uses with the original bag. I got to wondering just how many hands with potato chip grease, among other nasty things, have been in that bag.
The simple solution was to make her a new Scrabble bag for Christmas. I used Lion Brand Tweed Stripes Bulky with size US 8 circulars. I used Jenny's Magic Cast On and it knit up nice and quickly. It only used about 45g (1.6 oz). I used a 3-stitch i-cord and a little tassel to add a bit of flair. Nehkhasi, you should enjoy the overall purple hue. It's a bit iridescent under fluorescent lighting which also ads to it's fun.
