Vestigial Socks: my free pattern
Yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Twist Sock, club colourway - Nemesis

Lucidity - square: my free pattern
Yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Blue Faced Lace, club colourway - Cumulus ( I had 2 skeins that weren't exactly a good match, but it barely shows, delighted with that)

mystery no longer

Such an enjoyable knit! Delightfully challenging, the colour changes kept me on my toes, I'm in love with the edging, what more to ask for? Exploration Station by Westknits!

Stephen West (westknits on Ravelry) really outdid himself on this one. The generous size is perfect coziness and the details are a sheer delight (seamless I cord edging all around the shawl anyone? Be still my little perfectionist heart...)

lined drawstring knitting project bags

I have made a bunch of project bags for myself recently, and I'd like to share my method. I'm getting a lot of comments on them on instagram, so here's how to make one (or a bunch!) for yourself and your knitting friends.

It's my preferred style of project bag - a boxy lined drawstring pouch. I like a sturdy bag that stands up by itself, so I recommend using iron on interfacing.

To confess, I'm pretty lousy at sowing, so if I can sow a project bag, so can you. If the edges are a bit uneven, don't sweat it, it'll be fine. I try to cut fabric and stitch it as best as I can, but hey, if the seams don't match up perfectly, who cares? The cheerful fabric will make up for any mistakes :)
