More Simple Shoes. I just love this pattern. This time they were made with Manos del Uruguay yarn. My LYS had two pinks — one soft, one electric — and I let the four-year-old pick. Electric pink it is.
And for the big sister a treasure bag made from Lamb’s Pride worsted that was a leftover in my stash. The pattern was based on An Evening Bag with Glitz in Knit One, Felt Too. I cast on 42 stitched instead of 60 using US size 10 needles instead of 11 (I don’t have 11 double pointed), omitted the blending filament, knit for 7 inches before the decreases, and used ribbon for the tie instead of felted i-cord. All those changes make me wonder at what point a pattern just becomes your own. Anyway, the bag was given with bouncy balls inside but I’m sure other treasures will be making their way in soon.
