Sunrise Market Tote

I was shopping for yarn with my mom while she was visiting for spring break! It's one of our favorite things to do! I hadn't shopped for yarn in a while since I put myself on a yarn freeze until I use up some of my stash......but I made an exception of course.

 Hobby Lobby has a few colorways of what they call "Print" yarn. It's variegated but it flows better than most variegated I have worked with and I usually love the results of it so much more. 
I saw a new color way called Sunrise Sky. I was drawn to it because well it reminded me OKC Thunder Colors! It's is March Madness after all. Basketball is on my mind. 
I just love the combination of Orange and Blue. 

I didn't know what I was going to make with it, but I was going to make use of it right away. 
I really wanted to design something other than a hat or scarf since it's spring. 
When I think spring I think farmers markets so I decided to make a big ole bag! 
The stitch pattern is fun and it works up fairly quickly once you get the hang of it. 

I really love the way it turned out! Now time to go shopping or maybe just fill it with yarn as a project bag! Since I do have several projects I need to finish.

New Calleigh Cloche

Spring time is almost here!!! I love making my Calleigh a fun spring time hat around Easter time.
 I found some cotton yarn in my stash I'd purchased over a year ago for another project that I didn't do. The yarn color matched the new outfit she had perfectly so I went to work designing!
 I really love this cloche and so did she! I hope you will enjoy it too! 

It's a pretty basic hat at the start with some added texture and floral detailing 
just perfect for the season.
