FREE Double Diamond Illusion Shadow Knit Tote

Well, let's see if this works. I have been playing around trying to get photos on my blog and think I'm doing ok. Let's see if this Free pattern will download and you can use it! I know it's small but you could probably print it out and enlarge it for yourselves. If anyone wants the written instructions, let me know and I can email them to you. Happy knitting and let me know and see what you're making!

Beautiful Day in Seattle!

Even though it's cloudy and gloomy, it's a beautiful day in Seattle! It's nice to have a cooler day once in awhile in August! You can open windows and and not have to turn on the AC. By the end of the week summer is supposed to return.

I just came home from a 17 day vacation. Well, came home about 5 days ago, and still cannot get back into my old routine. I actually took time to go through my two knitting boxes in the livingroom to see where I was at when I left but I can't figure it out. I can't find my patterns and not sure where I was so guess I'll just start over. I am going to post some pictures of my latest purse designs. What am I going to do with all these purses!? LOL

Everyone have a nice day and I'll be back later to post some photos..........

I"m back. This is my first attempt at designing my own illusion or shadow knit pattern. I love the color combination and I think the tote/purse turned out super! I have the pattern all written out if anyone is interested in tryng it themselves. I have the illusion pattern........the tote pattern is pretty much up to you........LOL

Good Day!
