Just finished, a beautiful new knitting bag
for what promises to be an equally
rich in color, beautiful hand knit sweater
from Amy Swenson's knitwear designs.
This shot silk & Amy Butler print go together
like peas and carrots, and while this test run
will remain with me, a similar bag is under way
in the Studio that will soon be posted for sale
on my new Etsy shop.
(Slowly but surely, patterns are being typed and posted.
Thank you for your patience.)
Back to the sweater pattern, my heart is
set on using madelinetosh, so I went straight
to my dear friend Beth's wonderful yarn shop,
Sheep Thrills in North Syracuse, NY.
There, I knew l'd find enough madelinetosh
for the job, not to mention plenty of other irresistible
yarns and patterns, and pictured above is the
yarn color I chose: "mare."
As if sewing a new bag, starting a new knitting
pattern and filling a new shop weren't enough,
drum roll please....
the link to my free Cartwheels quilt pattern
is now available
in the right margin under the Project Linus link.
Designed to be a fast sewing project,
and one that looks good in just about any
fabric combination, this modern, graphic design
would be loved by any teen or child in your life.
If you'd like to sew one up for Project Linus,
well, that would be really great, too!
I hope you enjoy Cartwheels.
