In the studio

Purse, polyester and metalic yarn, size 9 plastic needles, "woven" stitch

Et Voila! This is the newest project incarnation for this yarn. And I think this is the one I will complete. The lacy stole in the previous entry just was not working out - the yarn didn't feel good at all. This newest fabric is very firm, with almost no give, and I think it will make a fascinating purse.

I took a bunch of knitted pieces to a shop in town that sells my work yesterday. I'm hoping also to get into a new market that is opening downtown, way down by the river.

I've also been working on cactus loads of new stuff - more photos to come!

Wow! It's hard to believe that's the same yarn. Amazing what changing needles, stitches can do. Guh, I love that about yarn.

Yes - I was starting to sweat over it after ripping out so many efforts. I love experimenting to see what happens.
