Free Pattern Sunday
I don't know about you but this hot weather makes me want to spend my days in front of a huge fan. And what better why to accommodate that but to knit. Or maybe that is just my excuse. Either why at least I'm knitting and trying to be cool. Sometimes the heat makes it hard for me to knit with wool and as I'm sure many of you experience this too, I thought it would be a perfect time to put up a pattern featuring a non wool yarn. This post's free pattern is a little mesh purse. Great for those hot nights when you just want to carry a few things.
