I sewed this little bag this afternoon! A very talented gal in our knit group makes these bags...and mine isn't nearly as nice as hers, but it serves a purpose and that's what I wanted. Thanks Stacey for the inspiration!
I followed Yarnmonster's tutorial and modified the tie to go through the side not the top.
I thought it was going to be too small, but it's just the right size for socks! I cast on the first of my Six Socks in September challenge today, too. If you look closely, you can see the green yarn in the bottom of the bag.
