Following my knits blitz on the weekend, I successfully achieved one of my goals. I frankensteined a hoodie from three different types of buffalo plaid.
It was so freeing just picking pieces that were big enough to lay a pattern piece on and cut something out without worrying about it being perfect.
Another finish today was this bag. I bought the fabric this week for this project as it’s for a coworker and the bird print will be perfect for her. I just happened to have a piece of vinyl that was the right size- all I had to do was square it up.
It’s lined and has a pocket with an attached D ring, which is handy for a knitter’s project bag to hold stitch markers.
The crochet cardigan is on hold for now. Did the front bands and half of both sleeves and tried it on and decided I wouldn’t wear it with the light orange and yellow. So I’m going to frog back to the shoulders and hopefully get more of the burnt pumpkin colour. It’s Hobby Lobby yarn and they don’t ship to Canada but I’ll work it out somehow.
Working the next three days and hoping I feel better. Haven’t felt right since Sunday and work was an effort. Tummy still over-sensitive. Wish I could just carry on making stuff!!
Hope you are felling better Nicola. Great pieces and creative.
What was the item done up in the taupe writing material ? Nice gift for the lady.
The taupe fabric was the bag lining.
