Hello to Ruthcrafts project bags!

My aforementioned friend, Ruth, has a range of lovely project bags that I’m excited to share with you.  They come in 3 useful sizes, to cover all project bases from socks to sweaters, with drawstrings for easy get-in-and-outability!

Here’s a little pic of all three sizes together..

They’re all cotton,  fully lined and fastened with drawstrings.  Click on KnitPro :)

Alletta, Allegra, Cloud and Caithness

Now, whats all that about??

Weeeell, let’s begin with Alletta and Allegra.  They’re a very pretty pair of shawls designed by my friend Ruth, who you’ll find at Ruthcrafts.

Alletta and Allegra are sisters.  Alletta is a plain stocking stitch top-down triangular shawl with a wide lace border, and Allegra sports the lace pattern all over. My li’l ole blog doesn’t seem able to cope with copying a picture from Rav, so here is a link to Alletta.

Now, what’s all this got to do with Caithness? Well….. Ruth is the first designer to be featured on the podcast from the Caithness Craft Collective, and I’m delighted to be included in this episode too, as the-person-who-supplied-yarn-for-the-giveaway!  The giveaway prize includes the patterns for both shawls, a project bag and a skein of Cloud!  There’s going to be an Alletta/Allegra Knit-a-long in the Collective’s Ravelry group beginning at the end of the month, and I have a little skein kept by so I can join in too.

And here’s some Cloud, newly updated :)
