Oh my evil monkey overlords. I thought I was the only person OCD enough to sit down and make 100x100 magnets! I have a magnetic white board in my room that has many icon magnets posted. And I too have a ridiculously large folder in my pics file for icons. That's what I love about craftster - it really shows you're not alone in your strangeness.
That is a kick-ass bag. Man, don't you just love the flea market? All kinds of random stuff to pick up there. I didn't even know that book was out yet. I guess it's time I concured my fear of hooks. (I blame it on Captain Hook. evil pirate, impressionable child, what's to be done?) 'Cause if I could make stuff like that... yeah, here be hooks.
I just finished that blanket in almost that exact same color. Did you feel like you were losing your mind with all the garter stitches? knit,knit,knit.... The next item I do will have a more complacted pattern.
