It’s June, and that means it’s time for the next installment of Twisted’s Single Skein Club.
I was really looking forward to this month’s offering, because it’s my design! I was delighted when Shannon and Emily asked me to design June’s project. They wanted a market bag out of a single skein of Hemp for Knitting’s AllHemp6 (100g, 165 yards, DK weight).
I knew that the bag couldn’t be huge, so my usual bag construction with a rectangle bottom wasn’t going to cut it. I took this project on Crafty Mom Weekend in March, and this was the result. It’s big enough to hold goodies from the farmers’ market, or lots of yarn.
The kit comes with a skein of AllHemp6 in Pumpkin. Since I already have a bag in nearly that color, I swapped for a skein of Deep Sea. I get special treatment, just this month! The package also includes this little container of solid hand lotion. It smells fresh and feels great.
The pattern is available only through the Single Skein Club for now; it will be available to the public on September 1.
