I finish my stealth stash bag

While I am eager to make a decision about and move forward with my 2011 North Carolina State Fair project, there are several other smaller projects I would like to get done before I give myself over to what generally turns into a full-time endeavor with long days, and, when necessary, long nights.

One of those smaller projects is my most recent stash bag. Done in Red Heart Super Saver camouflage and medium thyme, it is meant to be a dual purpose bag.

First and foremost, it is meant to holds one’s stash. Second, but just as important, it is also meant to shield one’s stash (or current project) from prying eyes.

I started my morning today with coffee, breakfast, and a few household chores, but in short order, it was time to refresh my coffee, and get to work. I plodded along with the project, and shortly after lunch, I had completed the bag:

With the bag was done, I had to try it out.

First, I filled it with yarn in need of camouflage:

Then, for purposes of documenting the project, I got this photo:

Next, I decided to see how the bag looked in its natural habitat:

While it did not blend into the landscape as perfectly as did this turtle that ambled through my yard the other day:

I thought the Red Heart Super Saver camouflage did a reasonably good job helping my stash to blend in with the natural flora of my yard:

I supposed, however, if I want this stash bag to work as well inside my house as it does outside, I just might have to crochet a camouflage sofa cozy.
