Bren is up and ready!!! I love this cardigan. It is soooo cozy! Bren is Welsh for tree and if you have ever been into a forest there, you would have seen the old, gnarly trees that tell a story of their own. Here's a sneak peek:
I have always lovely the extra something-something that knitting accessories can offer. I can't get out of my head the sock needle stitch markers I saw at the Creative Sewing & Needleworks Festival I saw in Toronto one year. I wish I had picked them up! They are so cute!
Stitch markers can also be beautiful, so I decided to make my own. They are too pretty not to share, so you can buy your own set on my Accessories Page. The stitch marker ring drops (good up to 10mm) are $8 for 6 and the hearts are $6 for 4. Or you can get latched stitch markers (hooks into stitches, travelling down, as the works grows and can be removed anytime). Drops are $8 for 6 and the Hearts are $8 for 4. All come in sapphire blue or emerald green.

Years ago, I taught a class at the DKC on Stashbusters. While I was cleaning out my collection of samples to give away to friends and family, I came across my Girl About Town Bag from the Stashbusters class! All this time later, I still really liked the bag! So I am hoping you do too! It a freebie and if you have more yarn, make it bigger! I think it is so English Rose victorian and yet retro modern at the same time. I didn't line mine or put cardboard, so I would love to see picture of those that do. A pretty floral cotton wold be so cute!
What a glorious day! Isn't nice that Spring is finally here? So a quick post to get out there and do some gardening...
A favorite baby pattern of mine, "Baby Wonderful" is now available here on my site and I am posting to Ravelry next!
Enjoy your day!
