Today's Projects

Besides going to the vet with Poppy to look at her stitches following the removal of her tumour, it's been a crochet/knitting day today.

I received my copy of Fairisle & Nordic Knits, a book I wrote a few months ago now and had almost forgotten about. It's my favourite knitting book that I've done so far. I love Fairisle and this one was a lot of fun to design. I particularly love the yoked jumpers and the Vintage Cardigan in here. It'll be in the shops next week and I'll also be selling it from my website.

I was also invited as a guest to visit Jane's Crochet Group in Lewes. It was amazing to see just how much her students have achieved. A really great group and I like to think there's a group like this in every town!

So now it's time for me to sit and finish my project for the Crochet Club. This is a summer project for July and I want to make a Beach Bag, so I've chosen a Long Wave Stitch, which I thought appropriate for that time of year. Am really enjoying the bright colours and I'm using Debbie Bliss Rialto DK. Here is a photo of it in progress. Next.... finding the right fabric for the lining! Suggestions would be good...

Cotton Fabric Liberty?

Thanks Valentina, I love liberty prints. I'm thinking of something nautical though. I finished the second side of the bag last night, so must start looking for some fabrics now!

I love this beach bag. Is the pattern for sale?
