Almost Rosey

Pink&White Bag

Materials: Mohair, Cotton, Wool & Satin blend for lining and strap

Dimensions: 35 x 30 cm (14 x 12 in)

This is the first knitting project that I actually managed to finish (yippie!). The bag was created for a friend who likes to wear white linen dresses in the summer; a friend who masterfully combines colorful thrift shop clothing/accessories with everyday classics such as jeans and hoodies.
I can imagine Lexi on the Alte Mainbrücke (thanks Wikipedia) next to her bike, wearing a white dress and a purpule hoodie and of course, her new bag, eating an apple and reading The History of Love (thanks Shelfari) and acting blissfully innocent while being photographed by her adorable boyfriend, Christian (please send picture.)
These are Lexi and Christian as I see them:

fur lexi und christian (and all their romantic seasons)

This is how it works...

It all begins with a ball of yarn. And the ball keeps on rolling and rolling. And sometimes it just rolls downhill without purpose, like dry tumbleweed propelled by gusts of firey wind across dusty plains. And sometimes, if the ball happens to fall in the hands of a meticulous crafts(wo)man it begins to shape up and lose its capacity to roll. It then tends to stic-k/h, to have roots and to stir feelings inside the hearts of its receivers. And that's what it's all about.

Hello and welcome to Seed of Life Design!

This blog is mainly dedicated to knitting, but every now and then I might post other things that I like/create, such as sketches, drawings, quilts, flowers, foods.
