This sunny weather had me thinking summery thoughts. Its farmers market season and beach days ALLL year long! So let's make something summery! I have a fun collection of bento bags, furoshiki and a number of other bags for market going. But I have a low supply of basket/ beach bags. I have a need for more of those bags that are net like. You know which ones I'm talking about? The kind that doesn't store a pound of sand. Well here is a great example and this months knit a long.
Cute too right?! Im going to try this beach bag in the fun t shirt yarn. It will definitely be a bigger bag (which is fine since I always have a posse to care for) Some other good yarns to try: Sprout (yummy textured cotton) Twirl doubled (love the colors) Blue sky worsted (we only have a few. But it's on SALE and an awesome orange color- so summery) Spud & Chloe (always love this yarn!) So I'll be sharing photos of my bag as it evolves and what other great yarns to use. We have linen, lots of cotton, hemp and bamboo. Have you heard about our Anniversary Sale?! Perfect time to pick out your May KAL yarn. The pattern is free here. Yay! Free is fun! We carry some Classic Elite yarns but not the one being called for. But get out of the box, forget gauge and knit on what you like. It's just a bag and does not need to fit. Excited! I'm casting on today and thinking I'll finish by Monday... Hoping. Ha ha I'm also going to work on a yummy GF (gluten free) zucchini bread this weekend. I will have lots to talk about Monday Happy Friday! Happy Knitting! Talk to you Monday xx Ash
