Lynn Finishes Another Project

Lynn just finished (ends sewn in and blocked) a shawl called Marbelous (pattern purchased on Ravelry). She used one skein of Manos Fino with a fair amount of yarn left over.
Marbelous is a light shawl for those lovely spring and summer days :) 
It knits up quickly, is fun to make and uses just one skein of fingering weight yarn. 
The shawl is worked top-down in one piece from the centre out as a crescent shaped shawl with a curved top edge. It is worked in garter stitch with alternating lace bands. A picot edging makes a beautiful finish for this modern & feminine accessory. 
The pattern contains written as well as charted instructions.
Lynn is wearing her own sunglasses today. She forgot to bring them out yesterday so I handed her mine. They were a little (a lot) too big for her face.

Lynn used the new Flexible Blocking Wires (and Soak) to block her shawl. I asked her to write something about the wires and then the day got away from us. I'll make her sit down and do it tomorrow 😘


Catherine from ZigZag Stitches brought us bags today. Ladies were gathered around as I was emptying the box.

This bag is referred to as the Shawl Wedge.
Dimensions (approximate):
14.5 inches wide across top (37 cm) x 8.5 inches tall (22 cm)
Base is 11 inches wide x 4 inches deep (28 x 10 cm) 

This wedge-shaped bag will hold a medium-size knitting project (such as a shawl or pieces of a sweater), along with a pattern and notions. Knitting needles up to 14 inches long (36 cm) will fit. The handle/strap is long enough to carry over the arm as a wristlet. The bag is interfaced for soft structure. It's lined with coordinating cotton, and constructed with no exposed seams. A pocket can hold notions. The heavy-duty nylon coil zipper has a long tab zipper pull. 


We also have the Sweater Wedge which is bigger.
Dimensions (approximate):
17 inches wide across top (43 cm) x 10.5 inches tall (27 cm)
Base is 12 inches wide x 5 inches deep (30 x 13 cm)

This wedge-shaped bag will hold a large knitting project (such as pieces of a sweater, or a small blanket), along with a pattern and notions. I can fit 7-8 skeins of worsted weight yarn in this bag. Knitting needles up to 17 inches long (43 cm) will fit. The bag is interfaced for soft structure. It's lined with a coordinating cotton print, and constructed with no exposed seams. The heavy-duty nylon coil YKK zipper has a long tab zipper pull. A pocket can hold notions. 

And a Small Wedge which is smaller.
Dimensions (approximate):
12 inches wide at zipper (30 cm) x 7 inches tall (17 cm)
Base is 9 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep (23 x 9 cm)

The generous dimensions of this bag will hold a project such as socks, mittens, a hat, a scarf, or a baby sweater. Knitting needles up to 11 inches long (28 cm) will fit. It's also great for carrying toiletries, small toys, or baby items. The handle/strap is long enough to carry over the arm as a wristlet. The bag is interfaced for soft structure. It's lined with a coordinating cotton print, and constructed with no exposed seams. The smooth nylon coil zipper has a wood bead on the zipper pull. The zipper opens at the top when the bag is hanging by the handle, so the contents will not spill out.


The Drawstring Bag
Dimensions: (approximate)
10 inches tall (25 cm) x 8 inches wide (20 cm), when flattened
Base is 3.5 x 4.5 inches (9 cm x 11 cm)

Take your small knitting or crochet project out in style in this handy drawstring bag. Socks, mittens, or a small scarf will fit. My drawstring bags have a padded lining to protect your needles and help prevent them from poking through the fabric. The bag will stand on its own, even when empty.
You can keep the yarn in the bag and hang the bag on your wrist while knitting. This is perfect for commuter knitting, for showing off at your knit night, or for keeping your knitting projects organized at home. Knitting needles or a spindle, up to 8 inches long (20 cm), will fit. The cotton twill ribbons pull to close the bag.


These are not on the website yet. After Catherine left I had to visit the dentist for a cleaning. I will try and get pictures tomorrow.

Someone called me out as to why I haven't spoken out about Ravelry's new policy. Thank you Carolyn. I should have made this statement sooner. I support Ravelry and their decisionI do not support Trump and his policies.
