In the studio
Purse, cotton "Crysalis" yarn, rib stitch, size 9 wood needle.
Me likes this yarn! It's very heavy and the drape when used in this rib stitch is yummy and wonderful. The yarn is cotton fiber wrapped in a cotton thread and beautifully complex. It's made by Colinette and their dying is almost always extraordinary. I tried seed stitch and didn't like it as much. I'll be lining it in cotton fabric using the same muted colors (an excuse to go fabric shopping!!). It'll be a basic envelope bag.
