Knitty has just published its “surprise” pattern, the Everlasting Bagstopper, a perfect hemp alternative to plastic (ugh) bags. It’s just the right project for our vacation knitting (along with a promise to finish 4 other projects!) so we wound up two skeins of Hempforknitting Allhemp6 in the lovely “Midori” colour—they’ll go into the suitcase tonight for our 7 am flight. But don’t worry, there’s still time to pick up some hemp, we’re open for another week (closing August 3 through August 10 for summer holidays). Happy Knitting!
