I put down my knitting for a bit this week (what? gasp!) because I realized it had been awhile since I had used the sewing machine. Thankfully, I don’t think you can forget how to sew, and I have successfully made a bag. It folds up neatly into a little pocket (which otherwise acts as a little pocket inside the bag).
Look! French seams!
And it folds out into a bigger bag, which will be perfect for buying yarn or getting books from the library. The pattern, in fact, is from a library book: I Love Patchwork by Rashida Coleman Hale. I’ll definitely be making more things from this book.
As I mentioned in my last post, I recently spent a few days in Toronto and went to Romni Wools. Since I’ll be moving to Toronto in September… I need to know where all of the good LYSs are, right? I bought this pretty colour of On Your Toes (Rav link):
And 225g of this gorgeous purple ashford Corriedale (Rav link):
Oh, what have I been knitting? Right, of course. In order to use up as much of my stash as possible before I move at the end of August, I’ve been using all of my DK stash to make baby hats for a program at my local hospital. They are so cute, and so easy! (Rav link)
I’ve made 4 so far and I’m working on a 5th one… and there’s still yarn left!
I’ll be linking up with Ginny (Small Things) for Yarn-Along today! Happy Wednesday!
