    Bag Lady #5

    Our 5th tote is finished & ready to be sent out to a deserving Bag Lady (Or Gentleman)!

    I'll be shipping it out as soon as I've contacted the recipient & have the necessary info. I'll give some clues as to the who & where once it's on the way.

    For those of you that would like the pattern, I finally finished it up. You can access it from my Payhip account and download it free with the code below until November 30, 2020. I only ask that you inform me of any issues with spelling, grammar, or errors you may find within the pattern as I've not had it edited or tested.

    I've come to the conclusion that collecting yarn, and using yarn are two entirely separate hobbies.

    TexasPurl this bag is beautiful and will make a lucky person very happy! Your generosity is so much appreciated. I have downloaded your pattern, and will be happy to “test” it for you, hoping to begin this weekend 😊😊

        Knitting is happening here! ❤️

          Your bags are always so beautiful! If I have an appropriate yarn, I'll definitely give the pattern a try. Can't wait to hear about the recipient.

            The intended recipient has graciously accepted our gift! I didn't have an opportunity to get away to the post office yesterday. It's on the list for 1st thing this morning.

            The 1st clue will be posted once it's on it's way!

              The tote is on it's way to it's deserving recipient! It should arrive Tuesday.

              1st Clues...

              1. The tote will travel an estimated 1,150 miles in a northeasterly direction. Approximately 360 miles before it leaves Texas.

              2. The intended recipient enjoys knitting & crochet, though knitting is her true love. She also enjoys reading. She generously shares ideas & encouragement here on Fiberkind.

              A new clue will be posted tomorrow!

                Pokes in to see if TexasPurl has given another clue.

                nope - any guesses where it is today? Maybe we’ll get yes or no’s from her

                  My calculations are mileage based with my limited knowledge of which states
                  have Fiberkind members. Since TexasPurl gave mileage clues and said it
                  was going in a northeastern direction, I narrowed it down to Indiana. Her new clues also support Indiana as the destination. I know of three Fiberkind members in Indiana!

                  lovestostitch - I can think of at least six members in Indiana or Illinois that would be reachable, and at least half could qualify under the next clues. 🤔

                  Char - TexasPurl makes it tough for me to guess because I don't know
                  exactly where she is. So I calculated mileage from Texarkana (the very edge of
                  TX) and she said it was approximately 790 miles after leaving TX. Southern IL isn't far enough. Champaign is 659 miles. Now I'm 760 miles from Texarkana so I could be playing with all of you and it could be me! So, it could be someone else in Chicagoland or Indiana or it could be southern Ohio. I'm am still betting on Indiana because it has all the things that TexasPurl gave as location clues and Illinois and Ohio don't come up as having them - Google knows a lot!

                Oh! Apologies! Time completely got away from me yesterday & posting a new clue slipped my mind. I was "clueless"! 😂

                The tote is schedule to be delivered today!

                A bit about the destination. It's home to a major university, an automotive production facility & a national semi-trailer manufacturer.

                The recipient:
                Married 40+ years with 2 children & 4 grandchildren.
                Oooh! She's opening an Etsy shop!

                Now we wait!

                  TexasPurl - would you believe zero had yarn???

                  Zippers, fabric cutters, office supplies for the Town Hall (don’t ask me about deliveries there! 😠). Stuff like that.

                #13
                Finally!! Showing out for delivery! I hope they can find the recipient before the turkey gets cold.

                One more clue!

                I am just bursting with excitement, and I can’t wait to tell you all that I am the lucky recipient of this beautiful Bag Lady Bag !!!!

                Debbie filled it with some beautiful yarn, soft and squishy - my mind is going in several directions trying to decide what I can make.

                Thank you so much for everything ❤️❤️ Especially the bag with “Love in every stitch” 😁😁
