Fabric, Yarn and Serious Bag Envy!

Material Obsession have sent out the next posting of fabrics for Fabric Club….

20130601-110449.jpg…yummo!! especially the far left!

With Winter nearly here, well, I suppose it is here officially, being the 1st of June (how did it get to be the 1st of June already??!!), I’ve been heeding the Call Of The Yarn. Knitting needles have been clicking away and the result is a cowl; my first attempt at one and designed by yours truly too…

20130601-110831.jpgOh, those colours aren’t true; it’s a very overcast, rainy day here in Melbourne town. Let’s try it on with some lights. Oh My Goodness!! How hard is it to take a photo of yourself!! A photo of yourself and not get the giggles!!! Don’t laugh too hard at these, will you!

First as a long loop….

20130601-111100.jpg…then double wrapped…

20130601-111229.jpgI like the way you can see both the plain and purl stitching when it’s double wrapped. Very happy with that! (I’ll have to practise self portraits!)

I’ve been hooking too, experimenting with ripple again and using Lincraft’s Prism Bamboo

20130601-111449.jpgI’m onto the second ball already and as I only bought two, may have to go back for another couple as I’d like this to be a long one. (The cowl yarn was also from Lincraft, but I must have binned the label – sorry.)

An unnamed friend(!) has purchased


I’m in love!! Check it out. (The white spots are light reflections not a fault with the bag – it’s patent leather)…

20130601-111929.jpg…and even gorgeous on the back…

Have a great weekend.

Happy stitching

    Love that cowl!!! That is so perfect for someone who is always cold…..ME!!!!! The colors are awesome and that bag……well, as the phrase goes—–it’s “to die for!!!!!” ‘Nuff said;-) Hugs, Doreen

  2. Yeah, me too, love that cowl. Is that one of those “make a surprise scarf with this” yarns? It looks lovely, anyway, and warm as toast.

    I Love the cowl, the colours are beautiful. The bag is gorgeous too. I think we all might have bag envy.

  4. I could have used your cowl while I was out this morning. Love the Obsession fabrics, they would go really well with my little pile of funky fabrics. Have a lovely weekend.

    I just love the cowl and have been making one in feather and fan stich, but just wondered how many stitches you put on the orange one . I have some scraps of wool and thought that they would look great made up into these
