I just looove this yarn. It’s all different shades of pink, from some roving I dyed ages ago, plied with sparkly silver thread! This was my first time plying with metallic thread, and I love the way it came out. I have some gold thread too, so I’ll have to find a way to use that soon. This picture shows the sparkliness of the yarn a little bit better.
In other news, I’ve actually made some progress on the Saturday Market Bag, following these modifications.
I really like how it’s working up. It’s a fast knit – don’t be fooled by how long it’s taking me to complete this, I’m a pretty slow knitter and I don’t spend very much time doing it. The body of the bag is done, so all I need to finish is the top edging and the straps. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it done in the next week or so – I’m so excited to go shopping with it and whip it out when the clerk asks if I need a bag!
This week is going to be fairly awful, since it’s the second-worst time in a college student’s life – midterms. Blech. I’ll try to keep crafting to relieve the stress, and I might even have some new things to post in the next day or so.
Enjoy your week!
