Hello friends! I hope you’ve been having a wonderful spring. Around the homestead, the maples are exploding with brilliant red buds, the willows have true leaves, and the frogs are performing nightly in the pond. It makes me want to get my hands in the dirt and start gardening! The weather has been so warm and we’re outside as much as possible. My favorite thing right now is when the wind blows just right, I can hear the baby goats from our neighbor’s homestead. It’s the sweetest sound ever.
I’m also having a shop update tomorrow (sign up at the top of the page for current shop updates) featuring Knitting Project Bags. I really am loving the fabrics for these bags. Most of them are made from upcycled cotton shirts, denim, and wool skirts, and all are lined with heavy weight cotton. The seams are top stitched and the bag finished with cotton twill drawstring handles. I would consider these a one skein project bag with plenty of room for extras. You could easily fit two skeins in here, but I like to have room to use my bag as a bucket, too.
They would make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or just to treat yourself. Update goes live tomorrow morning at 10am in our shop. I hope to see you there!
