A day of inspiration...

A day of inspiration is always a gift, and today has been one of those days.  Do you find that it always pays to listen to your intuition, hunches, and that teenie voice urging you to go ahead and try something new... and it's always smooth sailing ahead from there?  I've spent my life doing this, and it's always worked well for me and not so well when I didn't pay attention to it.  Like many of you, I've been looking for a new pattern for a fall/winter bag.  The catalog arrived in the mail, and although I was working at the time, I felt urged to thumb through it quickly... landed immediately on page 20 and there it was, the Intwined Felted Bag Kit in blue green

and brown

and designed by Meghan Jones  The Pattern Dowload (alone) is $4.99. The kit is on sale for $25.99 (a 26% discount).

Follow your intuition, embrace your creativity, and knit like there's no tomorrow!
