Knitting Project Bags


Hello friends!  I hope you've been having a wonderful spring.  Around the homestead, the maples are exploding with brilliant red buds, the willows have true leaves, and the frogs are performing nightly in the pond.  It makes me want to get my hands in the dirt and start gardening!  The weather has been so warm and we're outside as much as possible.  My favorite thing right now is when the wind blows just right, I can hear the baby goats from our neighbor's homestead.  It's the sweetest sound ever.  

I'm also having a shop update tomorrow featuring Knitting Project Bags.  I really am loving the fabrics for these bags.  Most of them are made from upcycled cotton shirts, denim, and wool skirts, and all are lined with heavy weight cotton.  The seams are top stitched and the bag finished with cotton twill drawstring handles.  I would consider these a one skein project bag with plenty of room for extras.  You could easily fit two skeins in here, but I like to have room to use my bag as a bucket, too.


They would make a perfect gift for Mother's Day or just to treat yourself.  Update goes live tomorrow morning at 10am in our shop.  I hope to see you there!

Shop Update: Hand Dyed Yarn







With all the eggs coming in again from our girls, I was inspired to dye up another batch of yarn based on their color ways.  I really love how the colors came out this year!  So many of the colors blend well with each other and would make a really lovely knitted easter eggsspring leaves, or a sweater.   Just in time for Easter gift making. Each skein is 220 yds {100g) of 100% Peruvian Wool in a worsted weight.

I also dyed up a few other color ways like Lilac, Hydrangea, Spring Sunrise, Dreaming of Summer, Spring Greens to name a few.  You can find them all and more in my shop here.  Update will go live at 10 am central time.  

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We're going to be spending as much time outside as possible soaking up the spring sunshine!
