Newest Messenger Bag

I’ve been slacking on updating! I have a few posts lined up, just have to type them out 🙂

My latest in loom knitting is this messenger bag! Made from yarn called Jazzy Stripes, this is a jazzy messenger bag! It is what I consider to be a “small” messenger bag in that it is made with my smallest long loom. I think my next project will be a medium sized messenger bag. The small messenger bag has been double stranded and is a bit thicker. This bag is big enough for you to carry the essentials when you go out, or if this is a gift for your daughter, niece, cousin, etc, they can carry around a few toys and must have items while you’re out and about!

New Items and Rebranding Update!

Hello there!
If you have been on facebook or twitter the last few days you may have noticed my name change! My store name changed and received a new look! It is now called Melli’s Yarn Works, and rebranding this blog is still being decided upon!

Until then… I did finish these two pieces! I was waiting for my new logo to be made to list them up and I have also been working on taking better pictures! Here they are, one is a cowl/infinity scarf and the other is a toddler hat! They are both available in my shop starting today! Enjoy and thank you for reading!

Luxury Wrist Warmers

This is my latest custom order of wrist warmers! Jessica, of Sew Do Something, was the lucky one who received them. They are made from one of my favorite yarns, Loops and Threads in the color called “Luxury.” I think they came out beautifully.

If you like this pair, and would like your own, here is the custom listing in my store for you to get them. As a special for the holiday season, I am offering 15% off your entire purchase if you use code HOLIDAY15 when you check out 🙂 Enjoy!

Wrist Warmers!

Here is my latest set of wrist warmers! They’re a gift for a friend who has been going through a rough time! I have also included a surprise… which I will tell about after she has received her package 🙂 I used the tutorial I posted a while back. I love this yarn, the colors are gorgeous and the yarn was very easy to work with!

Has anyone else used the tutorial? What do you think of this new pair? If you’re interested in a custom pair, and would like to purchase a pair let me know!
