Here is my Fiesta Bag that I showed in my last blog entry, now with handles!
Rather than knit the handles according to the pattern, I’ve made i-cord handles. I started out knitting the handles from the pattern but decided I preferred i-cords, so ripped out what I started.
On Friday I will start my July Camp Loopy project, a shawl called Sur le chemin de l’école. I will be knitting it in this yarn:
That’s Madelinetosh Pashmina in the “Rain Water” colorway. I’ve got three skeins. Such a pretty colorway!
ChiaoGoo Twist Mini
Have you seen the new ChiaoGoo Twist Mini interchangeable needle set? I pre-ordered a set when it was announced and got it a couple of weeks ago.
(Diet Coke included for scale.)
It’s a set of very small-sized needles: five tip sizes US000 (1.5mm) to US1.5 (2.5mm), three cables, a wee box with the little parts and pieces, and a ruler. This set is packed in a tidy little black mesh pouch.
The whole thing packed up will fit very neatly into your knitting bag. A nice little set!
“Hello, Lady Kitties!”
That is his “come hither” look.
