Accessorize, Dahhhhling, Accessorize
As any good fashionista knows, it's all in the accessories. While no one will ever confuse moi with a fashionista, I do like me a good bangle, bebob, bedazzle and bling. And knitting? Oh yeah, we're down with the accessories. So this weekend I sat myself down at the sewing machine and the bead boxes and made a few little items to trick out some knitting caches around Blogland.
The fabric is Henry Glass & Co. (it has small balls of yarn, if you can't tell from my pic) and the pouch pattern is a tutorial on Crafster, just in case you're interested. (See, Lone Knitter, I will get you into sewing, oh yes, I will get you into sewing...)
My own knitting cache was boosted this weekend with the arrival of my prize from Marisa. (Go check out her gorgeous hat. I'm thinking about a nice little set, paired with the Kureyon scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Would certainly brighten up those dreary winter days that are just around the corner...)
Here's a girl who knows how to accessorize. Not only did she send yarn, but a pattern and "sustenance" to keep me knitting. All topped off with a South Dakota postcard to feed my fantasy of escaping to the middle of nowhere with nothing but my yarn and coffee.
And since we all like a little yarn porn... gotta love the Trekking...
