Just in time for summer vacation knitting, here are patterns for small projects to take with you on the road.
Each uses just one skein of Rowan's Tapestry yarn and size #5 beads. The subtle color changes are fun to watch unfold and the beads add that special bit of pizazz. (But you can substitute lighter weight worsted wool yarn, like Brown Sheep's Nature Spun and Paton's Classic Wool and use of leftovers and single balls from your stash!) . . . more . . .
>Short Row Felted Bag Pattern Collection!
The stitch design here first appeared in a Barbara Walker Treasury. Laura Aylor used this motif with color-changing Kureyon yarns in a block-at-a-time afghan with spectacular results. As a long-time fan of Kureyon, my first thought was to see what happens when this motif is felted, and the result is this collection of bags. . . . more . . .
