Beautiful Bags

Doreen came in wearing her Throwback. She did an amazing job. She chose Cascade 220 for her cardigan. I love the colours!
It fits her perfectly. She knit most of it in the arena watching her granddaughter figure skate. She said it was easy (except the few rows when you are carrying three colours - I hated those rows too).

Alex finished her Nightshift.

Alex used Noro Akari. One ball each of 1 and 9.

She knit the shawl on 5mm needles (like the pattern asks for) and said that she would use a 4.5mm needle if she was going to make it again. It is a touch on the loose side - nothing bad but it could be a smidge tighter.

She had enough yarn to add 20 rows to the shawl. Bigger is better.

Mr. Canada Post brought us a box from Atenti this morning. It will be hard to share these with you. I want need want them all.

The Atenti Stampede Backsac - A matte flocked velvety pattern on a distressed faux leather. Double adjustable ultra-suede straps allow the backpack to be worn as a backpack, a shoulder bag or on the wrist while knitting on the go. A combination of a loop and an internal magnetic, allows the correct amount of closure. Roomy with an oval base 11” x 5.5” and a height of 13” and fully lined in water resistant taffeta. Inside are a zippered pocket and a divided pocket with a cell phone slot. 
This is the Pink Sunshine Backsac.

Lynn put the Backsac on so you could see the size.

Rowan sent two great kits for the Food Drive gift baskets.
The kit has the pattern for Nether - a pair of fingerless gloves knit in cashmere.

We purchase our Knitter's Pride needles from N. Jefferson. They sent us a set of interchangeable needles.
