The Knitting Magpie goes rogue- and does very little knitting.

Hello folks. I hope you are enjoying the start to summer ( or winter depending on your location).

I’ve dipped in and out of my current projects over the last couple of weeks having been side tracked by sewing a tote in the most gorgeous Llama fabric and crocheting my first ever piece of clothing.

Firstly my tote which I am thrilled with. I noticed the fabric on bagclaspsltd and fell in love with it, I then saw that they also did some really cute bag kits that included nice leather handles & clasps plus interfacing and hardware – right down to the bag feet. I also had some red ticking stripe linen perfect for lining. The finished bag just makes me smile, it is so cheerful.

Now to my crocheting. I’ve always been a knitter and dipped my toe into crochet earlier this year with a bag & hat raffia kit. I decided to try my hand at the Verë Tee from We are Knitters in their hand painted sprinkle prima cotton and am pleased with the results, it was also really quick to do.

I don’t know about you guys but sometimes I want a small project. With this in mind I have the Cedar Shake Mitts pattern from Loop London which I am doing in Happy Glamper from Plucky Knitter. The first one is shown here on my lovely heart glove blockers from Alexworkshopdesigns on Etsy:

 

Back to knitting now methinks before withdrawal sets in. I’m planning a lighter weight glazed cotton dk sweater in ice cream shades for summer.

Have a good week and enjoy whatever project(s) you are currently working on.

Love

Magpie
