And more....

Catie is cranking out so much stuff she really needs her own blog. She finished the moss stitch bag (Catie bag?) and started another really cute Erin Bag.

Catie Bag is made of Kertzer Butterfly 100% mercerized cotton yarn.
She used # 8 needles, cast on 54 stitches and used a moss stitch for the entire piece.
Slap a lining in it (fabric glue), sew it up ..sides and handles, thread the ribbon through, and you've got a really cute bag.

This Erin Bag is made using two strands of Kraemer Yarns Tatamy Tweed held together. (made in Nazareth, PA)
She cast on 54 stitches on size 9 needles. You can't see it, but the yarn has tiny colorful specks in it. She got bamboo handles, salmon colored ribbon, and a pretty paisley fabric for the lining. . It's going to be adorable. She is becoming quite the accomplished knitter!!
