A New Sweater And The Bag It Calls Home

I recently fell in love with yet another sweater pattern. The Tea Leaves Cardigan by madelinetosh. Even though I still have a few projects currently on the needles, I felt the need to cast on for this one right away.

Do you blame me? Seriously.

Is it just me.. or is this ruched yoke pattern in this colorway of madelinetosh merino pretty much the most beautiful thing ever?

I decided that I had to go with the Tannehill colorway for my sweater, just like the original pattern photo. This color intrigued me in the pictures and is equally stunning in real life. Usually I would be scared of so many colors thrown together in one yarn.. but its so elegantly executed. It's truly unique and lovely.

(Be sure to listen to Episode 30 of the NeverNotKnitting podcast airing tomorrow.
There will be a special offer from Backwards Loop for the madelinetosh yarns.)

Plus I had to have something exciting and new to put into my new RoseKnits project bag.
If you aren't familiar with these bags, I highly suggest you check out RoseKnits etsy shop and the selection at Backwards Loop.

I am in love with this little bag. It holds 2 balls of yarn, my work-in-progress and the pattern quite comfortably with room to spare!

And it's a whole lot cuter than the gallon size ziploc bags that I normally use...

I also love that it has its own handle! Perfect for knitting on the go!
