We now interrupt our regularly scheduled knitting....

I swore I wasn't going to do any holiday knitting this year.

But guess what? I am doing some last minute things. Which means the little bag is on hold for the moment.

So, instead of a finished object, I'll give you some new fiber to look at. Hopefully these colors will make it into projects in the new year.

Another WIP

Here is another WIP.
I got the urge to start a new project (!) right before Thanksgiving. It should be a quick little bag, based on some traditional Finnish designs. It is knit in an extremely thin mercerized cotton.

WIP - Great Lakes Bag

This tote is based on patterns taken from woven textiles of the Great Lakes Native Americans. It is knitted from cotton, rather densely knitted, and will be lined when finished. I hope to have the finished bag available on Etsy early in 2010.

WIP - Hinsdale Autumn Bag

Since I don't have any current finished projects to show, I thought I would blog about what I am working on. The projects on this blog are of my own design, and many are available for purchase. If you want to see my other projects (socks, sweaters, etc.) then check out my Ravelry page (I'm DebKnits on Ravelry).

This WIP is a medium-sized bag with patterning based on some Komi designs. It will be lightly fulled when finished. I call it Hinsdale Autumn, because Hinsdale is the name of one of the towns we drove through when I was in the early stages of knitting it and the gold and rust colors make me think of autumn. I hope to have it up on Etsy by the beginning of 2010.

Thanks for visiting my fiber explorations.

I plan to show my newest works, works in progress, inspirations and other fiber-related goodness.

Won't you join me?
