Our friend Gayle walked into the shop today with two sacks of show and tell.
Out came THE most fabulous knitted bags I have ever seen. Really. Bar none. After gasping for air for a couple of minutes, I composed myself enough to ask permission to take photos to share with you (I would have begged if she'd made me).
Here are three of them for you to dream about
tonight...knitted of her multitudinous balls of novelty yarns, along with lots of fancies from Common Threads in Taos.
What you can't see is the linings. Each has a beautiful, brightly colored (some polka dot) fabric with coordinating ribbons binding the edge at the top. I'm telling you, that girl's on fire. I wish I could channel her creativity!
Here's a puzzle I hope you can help me with: her sister sent the forms for these bags and the only tag she could share with us was in Chinese (I think...my only experience with Japanese, for comparison, is a sushi menu). It is a black mesh in the shape of these bags. I would love to order these to have in the shop, but know not where to start. Anyway help you can give me is greatly appreciated...no...better than that...if you can lead me to a distributor, I'll give you a bag form for your effort!
I'll part with a photo of the genius behind these pieces of brilliance (in all senses of the word!). ---Martie
