I put these two bags in my Etsy shop. I’ve made the Stress Zebra Knot Bag before for a friend but this one is for my shop, it’s just so cute. Don’t we all feel like this sometimes? The alpaca design looked very good, but it’s a pain to sew out because of all the thread color changes, even tho some of the colors are the same. Still it’s a nice looking design.
This hat, Basia, is a very nice knit and the texture design is pleasant to look at. I’m making this for a special family member who requested a hat from me. She said she wanted lavender, so I ordered the Lilac Jacquard acid dye for 1 of the polypay skeins I still have (only about 4 more skeins tho, have thoroughly enjoyed knitting them :P). I love the way kettle dying comes out, instead of one solid color they are usually shaded, no complaints here :). You can also see on the hat the beautiful stitch marker I got from MekaMika on etsy.
The mega snow storm missed us except for a trace of snow. I won’t complain, I didn’t want 1 or 2 feet of snow :). I love the El Ninos that come every few years, they make for a much more pleasant winter here :).
