We are getting rain, snow, ice, freezing rain, wind, just about every form of winter weather. This is extending over a large part of North America. It is a perfect day to stay home and knit!
Bear, my favourite fashion model, has been feeling neglected lately, so I got him to model for me today.
He is ready for whatever the day brings. Of course, teddy bears don't really have necks, so he is wearing the neck warmer as a sweater.
The hat is finished.
The pattern is called Bankhead, and it can be found here. I modified it with a k2p2 rib to match the neckwarmer. The yarn is Brave Stripes by Knit Picks and I made the set with less than 200 gm.
I actually got to do some selfish sewing yesterday (why do we think it is selfish if we make something for ourselves?)
I got a new phone, and it was a tight fit in my current clutch, so I saw a new pattern and thought it was just the right thing.
The bag is called Findlay Phone Wallet by Hold It Right There Designs. I added a crossbody strap since I like my hands free. Just beside Bear's head, you can see that I inserted some of the lining fabric into the strap. The flap is cork fabric from a sample pack I bought from MM Cork.
The bag has card slots in the front phone pocket.
It also has a zippered body, to keep my mask, keys, etc.
The fabric is "Not Ameowsed" by Dear Stella. Do you think anyone will notice that my bag is Christmas fabric, in April?
Two finishes on the same day!
