Tiny Triangles

Available in PDF format for $4. Tiny Triangles everywhere! These wristlets are the beginning of a series of Tiny Triangle pieces. Knit these from any sportweight sock yarn (and there are so many lovely ones). I knit these from Delicious Yarn that I purchased at Dublin General Store in Dublin, New Hampshire in 2006. I bought more yarn there this year. Really like her nature girl one-of-a-kind colorways. I have socks to match and will post that pattern soon. I got socks and wristlets from one hank of her yarn. Email me to purchase the pattern.

Pumpkin Felted Bag



Pumpkin-shaped bottom keeps this spacious knitting bag open for business. Wide handle enhances the strength of this durable and functional bag. Thick/thin yarn adds texture. This pattern uses a provisional cast on and works in both directions from cast on row. There are several provisional cast on methods in both my books or you can find one online. Pattern is written to make the most use of Aquarella’s yardage. Can also be knitted in double stranded worsted weight (remember to buy double yardage).

Pattern available for $4 in PDF format. Email me to order.
Check out the beautiful grey bag below. Lori knit this and felted it in less than 24 hours! I sent her the pattern yesterday afternoon and she immediately knit it from yarn in her stash. She used double stranded manos plus some thick and thin superfine merino from Peace of Yarn. Addition of handknit flower from her friend Michelle Hoffee is a real plus . I just LOVE this bag. Lori is ready to find more yarn to start another! woooohooo!
