Universal Yarn is based in North Carolina, and let me tell you, the Old North State is feeling very Southern today. It's hot. Very, very hot. And with thunderstorms every afternoon, it's not a dry heat. We can't bear to start a giant wool blanket, but we also can't bear to put down our knitting needles. What to do?
Enter the Chiffon Trimmed Purse. Knit with two skeins of Good Earth Solids (204yds/100g), our summery blend of 53% cotton/47% linen, the fabric-lined bag is edged with a skein of Chiffon Ribbon (33yds/50g). This would be a very easy project to personalize to your tastes. How about an understated earth-tone bag in creamy Good Earth color 102 Cloud and brown/tan Chiffon Ribbon color 150-10 Sophia? Or think pink with Good Earth color 106 Canyon and Chiffon Ribbon 250-06 Filomena? Or add a little pizzazz by using one of the Good Earth Multis?
We hope you keep something fun to knit in your Chiffon Trimmed Purse – and that you stay cool this summer!
