Ready for some retail therapy with a side of laughter and community? Look no further than Erin.Lane's monthly live sales! Each sale features a fresh theme (think whimsical unicorns, sassy llamas, you name it!), and you'll be the first to snag brand spankin' new fabrics. Who knows, you might just find your new favorite bag too.

Make sure to never miss a minute (or fabric) by signing up for the newsletter, and keep up with us in real time by with our Facebook community, Erin.Lane Bag Buddies. Bag buddies always get first access to new bags and fabrics, because who doesn't want to share the love of their besties?

    When knitting attacks:(33:25)

    Gigi: Meadowlands #11 : ball of yarn fell apart. Horrendous yarn barf.  Next meadowlands is going in a ziplock bag, with one end going around, and the center pull section through a snipped hole in the bottom of the bag .

    Gigi: picked up too many stitches for G heel flap.  It annoyed me, it didn’t want to get done . Ripped back, picked up the correct amount of stitches, back in business. Not annoyed at it anymore 

    Gigi: jelly roll socks :arch ribbing. Missed changing colors at one spot. 

    Lazer sheep sparkle yarn. Decided to frog it, will knit it on size 1 needles 

    Jasmin: Made one sleeve with the correct math. Made the second sleeve doing the reverse (not paying attention to the directions), and it was huuuuuuuge. Ripped, reknit.

    Knit more, know more :(40:15)
