Still Striping

My new thing with stripes has not yet abated. I’ve added some things to the shop, knit up some that will be there shortly.

Stripes work because they add interest and texture somply by having different colors. Stitches show up better, the eye can be pulled and a focus point can be made just with a little change of color.

A Little Bit Obsessed – The Sidewalk Shawl

I made the first Sidewalk Shawl and discovered I liked it a lot and so I made five more and I am hoping to find enough in the stash to make another one. I am thinking there’s some in the blue and purple bins that might help me out.

I’ve seen one of my shawls on a living, breathing human being – twice – and I have to say it looked pretty good on both of them. This is a flattering little number and is great for casual, bohemian or more formal outfits.

I should add these are crocheted pieces using a size J hook. The pattern is free of charge.

Caron One Pound
Red Heart With Love

This is where JoAnn coupons can come in handy. At my local store the three skeins of With Love will cost less than two skeins of Caron but Caron goes on sell more often. Unless there’s a really good coupon deal, I tend to go with the Caron.

Shawls are available for sale at Knit360five.

Stripes!

I was glad to read stripes were still in vogue (and Vogue.) I wanted to have some fun with stripes and this is what I came up with. As soon as this halter was finished, it was purchased. When you create items to sell, you can’t ask for anything better than that.

I am now on the lookout to do more stripey things when they present themselves.
