The 2011 Honda Native Concept…a chameleon car! This cool car can change its color to match its surroundings! Strange?! Read more here. Why do I want a car that change color? If there is seven of them in the parking lot, which one is yours?
This morning, while waiting for my girls at their band practices, I cast on this cute bag–a test knit for Svetlana Volkova, a Russian knitwear designer.
Totally brainy, my kind of fun in knitting…knit-one-below brioche, v-stitch, garter straps, short-row construction…and totally seamless. The pattern does seem tricky if knit-one-below and/or short-row shaping is new to you. However, knit it with good faith and just do what the pattern says, all will work out. Simple. Yes. Just believe.
The staged photographs was for a couple of my photographer friends. Unfortunately, I do not have a right-size baby to properly show how adorable this could be. So, use your wildest imagination, won’t you?
Here, for a small fee, is the downloadable pattern for Svetlana’s cleverly-designed Irish Shell, which I renamed Mousse Cocoon. You won’t be disappointed. I will divie into my fabric stash next to find the right lining. Do you have a favorite knitted, crochet, or felted bag?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
