I’m so excited about knit camp next week I can barely stand it! I’m still a little shocked that I won’t be knitting the subtle stripe vest there:
Instead I’ve started the lace shawl, so I should be able to just follow the simple lace pattern while I talk:
It’s only a 10 stitch repeat, what could possibly go wrong? (don’t answer that)
Along with that I think I’ll bring the long in hibernation argyle jacket, because that’s just the kind of simple stockinette I may need to fall back on… Also, autumn is coming, and before I start any new Twist Collective patterns, I should really get some of the old ones off my needles. (that’s a link to the new fall twist collective, I haven’t looked yet, I’m headed there next!)
But before I go, I want to show off my cute new purse:
I finally retired the old vera bag with the foam showing through the handles. Who am I kidding? By “retired” I mean it’s now holding a knitting project… Anyway, my new purse is a beatiful hand-made bag by RS Designs. I’d give you a link, but they don’t have one. I got mine at the Old Mill Craft Shop, which is like a downsized version of Etsy with all kinds of awesome stuff, plus no shipping!
