“Sew TOGETHER Bag” is this awesome bag from “Sew Demented” that anyone can sew up in a day for first time using the pattern…Well it took me 5 hours for this one. Really had to think what it is telling me to do next in the pattern…and not rush into sewing sections together.
So I took my time and looked everything over twice before I cut or sewn the sections together..
and It worked out pretty amazing I think…This bag is perfect for Knitting or sewing notions. I’ll make a view more for sure…just need more zippers and some fabric…but guess what? SMILES……I am working Friday and Saturday so I have that alllll……right in front of me alllll day…smiles. Ok If you like I can show you too where we have the pattern and help you with selections for the fabric ….looking forward to see you then. Really love this Sew together bag…..
Just posting some of the Fingering weight yarn in 50% Merino Wool and 50% Silk under
” KnitswissYarns Figering Weight”
If you are looking for a nice soft yarn perfect for knitting a Shawl, Scarf as well they are great if you are working multiple colour projects. I have a view colours left with 2 – 3 skeins. The rest is one skeins only for now. Hope to have a bigger selection in 2-3 skeins with same colours soon again.
I am happy to ship them to you too but would have to charge a shipping fee.
Have a look on the top of my site for the “KnitswissYarns Fingering Weight” all skeins available to buy are listed there. Just give me a text if you are interested in any.
So it is not surprising that I love this look in placemats.
I had worked up a Table Runner two weeks ago called “River Stones” and had some sewn fabric section left from this Table runner.
The pattern indicating it would be for a Runner and a pillow. Beautiful, but I really did not need another pillow in my home.
So you can see I added some more strips to the already sewn pieces and divided the length into two sections that now are the perfect size for two placemats. If I would make this pattern for placemats only, I would make the two section ONE!
…but for now I am ok as is as sections where sewn already and I had only very little fabric left.
Really love this look, very modern and fun.
And as You can see I have added my next project on the knitting needles too…SOCKS!
I am working them with new needles…more in my next post…..see you soon again :-)
Well not so new I believe. One of my customers from work has ask my over two years ago if we sell knitting needles that bend in the centre and you only work with 3 needles she said…and if I have knit with them yet…?
Unfortunately at that time I had to say “NO” to both of her question….smiles, this would not be the case today.
As of today I own a set on my own. Today I bought a 2,5mm FlexiFlips needle from Serenity Knits See what I have worked up so far the cuff of two socks…The ladies indicated it is just like knitting with straight needles. Agree, but really short straight needles. I think this would be perfect for a project on a plane where one has to make sure your not poking the person beside you..smiles.
My thoughts are; my absolute favorite needle to knit socks would be the magic loop then comes the FlexiFlips and my least favourite one would be working with 4 or 5 double-pointed needles.
The FlexiFlips are truly a great solution if you not a fan of the magic loop. Great to put the knitting down too and not having to worry of loosing stitches , though keep an eye on that 3rd needle ..smiles. I was knitting away ……and being used to knitting with my magic loop let go of the needle at the end of the row to flip to other side….well that was my 3rd needle now hahah for me the needle ended up on the floor….just something to be aware off.
“Spending time with my mom back home in Switzerland and with great friends….”
Exiting part of this trip was the Ms. Excellence Allegra our Ship stopped in Amsterdam….yessss guess who has a store there? Stephen West and Penelope…I just had to visit this store! We bought yarn and some stitch markers with…
Oh yes bicycle theme. So cool
Reni my girlfriend was totally on board to find this store too. Though she doesn’t knit much she still bought yarn so this is where I came into play….happily I have to say
