Happy Easter! It looks like it is going to be a beautiful spring day here in the northeast. Alas, I am still suffering from a very painful wrist. I think that my only option now is to go to the hand doctor and get that cortisone shot. I’ve been resting my wrist for several weeks but it has done no good whatsoever. But enough about that…
This week I have 6 bag and purse patterns to de-stash. Please refer to ”group 1″ or “group 2″ if you are interested. First one to comment on each group gets the group of their choice.
The above group includes one Tunisian bag, the fanny pack on the right.
The backpack in this group is Tunisian.
Next week will be a very special week. I will be offering a Jimbo hook as the giveaway. For those of you not familiar with Jimbo’s beautiful hooks, visit his blog, Jimbo’s Front Porch.
When I made this jacket in 2004, we were spending our winters in San Antonio, Texas. While we did have snow one time, it never really got much colder than 50 degrees during daylight hours. I thought that a nice heavy fringed jacket would be just the ticket. This pattern by Lily Chin calls for many skeins of Berroco Suede. Now, Berroco Suede is not cheap. In addition, the whole jacket is made using the Tunisian stitch which I had never tried before. Gulping down my misgivings, I sprung for the yarn and the Tunisian hook. Surprisingly, the whole thing went very smoothly. I loved working with the Suede yarn and learned a new stitch in the process. The jacket was great in San Antonio but alas, I haven’t worn it anywhere else!
