All Things Knitted














Like so many of you, I love functional objects that depict knitting. If you haven't seen the gorgeous porcelain work of Alyssa Ettinger, I encourage you to take a look. Although I don't know her personally, I purchased tumblers and bowls, which are beautiful. Her website is: http://www.alyssaettinger.com/.










Behind the scenes of a photo shoot can be fun to look at!










The Barcelona Bag photo shoot took place in downtown Portland, Oregon in front of a 1906 Bank Building.














If you are not yet acquainted with the Barcelona Bag, it is available at: http://www.tinkknit.com/Barcelona_Bag.html






Did you notice that the photo we used looks like we shot at night? It was 3PM in the afternoon, but through the magic of photography and a very fast shutter speed, the photo we used looks like midnight in New York!



The knitting is incredibly easy, although it appears impossibly difficult. The lace image on the front is accomplished by using...........spray paint! Even on close inspection, it's almost impossible to figure out, tee hee! All the instructions in this 10 page pattern, including where to get the exact handles and buckles are disclosed, as always!






I love beginning knitters and want all of you to know that you can accomplish magnificent things with only a few skills!
