Hurricane Irene is barreling through NJ and Philly area now, even though the eye is still near Virginia I think...and I just read that Virginia has received more than 15 inches of rain and there is plenty more to come. Also, more than a million people in the North Carolina and Virginia areas have no power. My family is near Philly, and it's been raining for awhile now there and getting quite windy. Power is flickering now, and will probably be off very soon. I am in central New York, and will be hit by Irene's rain and winds tomorrow all day, so at least we will have daylight to see what's going on. And will be crocheting while stuck inside! I just might start working on Christmas stuff, maybe cause I dug out all my Christmas colored yarns today :):):):):)Here is the stash bag I made last week out of cotton yarn. I think I like working with cotton better than acrylic now! I saw it on Crochetbug's site, and here is the link to the pattern she posted. Very cute little bag. You can adjust the size too by using a different hook size, or double up the yarn!
