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.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
I am a painter of still lifes and local landscapes and try to pick up the brush every day. I am a wife to a wonderful man, and mom to three young boys and a goofy big dog who keep my life quite colorful and never, ever boring.
I am a painter at heart who loves to play with color and texture. I am endlessly inspired by folk art and ethnic textiles of all kinds and frequently draw some of the shapes and patterning into my work.
The projects on this blog are of my own design and many are available for sale. Check out my Ravelry page for my other knitting projects!
