Gwen, of "In Over My Head" blog had several give-aways in December. She wanted everyone who entered to win, so at the end of the giveaway(s), she bought those of us who didn't win their choice of Hot Patterns from a particular grouping. How sweet is that? I decide on this HotPatterns Plain&Simple Boxy Bowling Bag pattern. Whew--that's a lotta' name! Looks like this:
I like a structured bag, and this fits the bill. I'm going to search the HP Website and PR to see if I can find photos of the bag, finished. I'm anxious to try this one out.
Thank you, Gwen.
I was glued to the TV last night, watching Downton Abbey. Some of you are having Downton parties, with tea and crumpets. I am so jealous! Still, I thoroughly enjoyed it without a party. Tonight, PeggySagers is doing her bi-monthly webcast. It's about knits. Honestly, knits are more popular now than in the 70s when Stretch&Sew erupted. I took a lot of classes at the local S&S store. It was new, fresh and fun. Now the variety of knits has expanded so that it takes some skill to know how to handle the various fabrics, their stretch and eccentricities. Which you know, they have.
I'll be here with my face in the computer screen tonight. See you there.
