Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

Pattern Review - Sassy Ruffle Bag designed by KT and the Squid

As soon as I saw the Sassy Ruffle Bag I knew I had to make it!!! LOVED it!!!! KT and the Squid has such cute designs and this purse was no exception! 



My niece had a birthday coming up and so I went shopping!!! (Not that I need an excuse to buy yarn, I picked some up last week cause it was Wednesday - but it's always more fun when there is a project and person in mind.) I used Caron Simply Soft Party in Silver Sparkle and Red Heart Boutique Sashay Sparkle in Mediterranean. I really wanted to use the Sassy Fabric but I couldn't find any in my area and I didn't have time to order it. I've worked with Sashay quite a bit and was worried about it stretching out too much when it was cleaned. I didn't want it to look too thin so I used two strands of it held together. Yes that was challenging but so worth it in the overall look of the finished purse!!!

A New Way to Change Colors - Guest Post by Sincerely Pam

I am sooooooo excited for this week's post! Pam, from Sincerely Pam, has graciously put together a photo tutorial for all of you on how she changes colors in her patterns. This method is so seamless and beautiful you will want to start using it on all your projects asap! I haven't been able to stop using it. She's a GENIUS!!!!

Q is for Quick Infinity Scarf

Over the past year or so I have developed this love of scarves. I love the way they drape, I love how they can be dressed up or down, they can be just for decoration or they can have a functional purpose. Personally, I tend to be attracted to things that are both functional and beautiful. (Partially why I love yarn so much I am sure of it!) 
Ready for what makes the Q is for Quick Infinity Scarf so great? This scarf is not only functional, and beautiful it is QUICK!!!! I mean less than an hr to make. I don't know how you get any better than that. I really don't. This is the perfect pattern for last minute gifts, or to build stock for a craft show. You can make a lot very quickly yet they are beautiful and don't look rushed.
