SockSack Pattern update

after getting lots of requests, I’ve revised and updated the SockSack pattern to have multiple sizes! (The Small size was the original sock size, Medium is perfect for cowls and scarves, and the Large is the right size for sweaters. 2-at-a-time sleeves, anyone?) My lovely friend Elisabeth made a Medium sample for me, and it’s […]

Another bag…

This puppy needs a name. I made another one to test my pattern, and I LOVE it. (BTW, if any of you love this bag as much as I do, I’d love a pattern tester!) My sister’s birthday is coming up, and that blue is her favorite color, so I think it’s headed her way, […]
