puro lino

or "I just got my advance copy and I can't hold back holding forth any longer."

and so, in Euroflax, two favorites from the new MDK book Here is Mrs Lear's Monteagle Bag that I embellished with beads. The droopy bead is a polished rock--not a good idea. This is a truly satisfying and skills-expanding project and a great bag to have on hand. I got a little carried away with the fun of making Horizontal stitches and did one more row than the pattern calls for. And, yes, that's knitting, not macramé.

Here's a peek at my Via Veneto table runner with the bowl (thrown and glazed by my friend Amy) that inspired my color choices. Now I want to make one all in cream that highlights the texture and weaving.

A beautiful and engaging book, Kay and Ann. (I just wish it came out during a school vacation.) xo, c.

Comments:
I love the beads! I think a curtain is next. Love the pic of your runner and that sweet baby cheeks in the hat! The bluebird came out beautiful! Would be good as a pillow in my livingroom too!
 
I never saw that picture of the runner and the inspiration together. Will make sure to reunite the sample with the inspiration one day!

I want to make a cream one, too. With hardware store twine for the weaving.

Thanks (for EVERYTHING),
Kay
 
Yay! Congratulations! I love the runner, so cool that weaving!
Are you coming to Maine for a book tour? hint hint!
