I’m somewhat frugal and try not to turn the heat on until at least November. Yesterday I broke down and turned on the furnace because it was cold in the house. In Boston we had our first brush with snow this past Thursday, burr!
The market bag pattern created by Gypsy is super easy to follow. I made my two market bags using this red cotton yarn I found. What a deal it was. I paid $4 for a giant spool of yarn at my local Walmart.
It’s perfect for the bags I’ve made so far. What else does a person do with that much red cotton yarn? Look for a picture of my bag posted to the Facebook knit-a-long event. I use my bag to carry the other canvas grocery bags I use. It is perfect to then use to carry home the bread I buy.
My market bag has drawn some attention where I shop for my groceries. One woman asked where I got the idea.
Now is the time of year I want some warm wool around my fingers so I’m knitting these Cabled Fingerless Mitts. I found this cool pattern which I downloaded from the Pattern Share page. I will be knitting up these gloves using the American Gothic yarn you can find on the Misfit Knitterz page.
I was apprehensive about using a yarn blend using pistachio, purple, mauve, and olive brown colors. From the description I thought the yarn would be pretty but wasn’t sure. I love it.
I don’t know what I was so concerned about. All I can say is that the American Gothic yarn is absolutely beautiful. How does Michele come up with these color blends?
Look for an email coming soon announcing an end of the year deal on the new Misfit Yarnz page. You should visit the page to see this funky picture slide Mike added which shows all the yarn available in an automated way.
