Crafty Stories

I like to tell stories through the creative arts. I may be slightly obsessed with books, movies, TV shows, yarn and fiber. Wanna hang out?

Fiber Arts Friday: Hodge Podge

This week has been one of those "a little of this, a little of that" kind of weeks. I did some knitting and crocheting and designing, oh my! Wanna see?

This is a knit and crochet version of the same pattern; I'm calling it Tea with the Dowager Countess (Knit) (Crochet) and it's available now on Ravelry. The yarn you see here is my Storied Yarns Superwash Bulky in the Violet Crawley colorway, inspired by Downton Abbey. The pattern is written for 2-cup, 4-cup and 6-cup teapots.

I also did some spinning this week. This is my BFL top in my "Matthew Crawley" colorway (also inspired by Downton Abbey), n-plied:

I also made a messenger style purse/bag for myself for spring. I followed this tutorial by Obsessive Crafting Disorder and bought the fabric from Sew Fine Fabric and I love it!

Now to fill it up with all my junk!

What have you been up to this week? Show it off over on Andrea's blog and link up with other fun fiber artists!
