Yarn Along..

Goldenrod over dyed with Indigo..
Had to knit it up for myself.

For some reason I am in LOVE with brilliant green lately.
Probably because it it so gray here.

Scarf pattern:

Uppercase Magazine

I've been wanting to subscribe to Uppercase for some time now.
When I read that this issue had a feature on feed sacks, 
I knew it was time to jump on board.

Uppercase is absolutely wonderful.


There are a lot of familiar fabrics in the magazine.
These little quilt squares were sewn by hand, while I was camping, over
20 years ago.  Ironed them with a coffee pot as I went.
So much fun to pull them out of the attic and see them again.

Dad even remembers a shirt made from one of the fabrics as a child.

Any other feed sack fabric fans out there??

  1. Green is my favourite colour. I like the bright green you're knitting with. So many lovely patterns in this post, especially on the cover of Uppercase magazine. Swoon!

  2. Ooooo, I do love that color. It is spectacular, and the pattern is so pretty.
    I think you are a genius..using the coffee pot to iron with...the mother of invention.
    It's interesting that I do not remember feed sack fabrics at all. My mother was a wonderful seamstress and sewed most of our clothes, but perhaps feed sack fab. just didn't make it all the way to Hawaii.
    I do have a soft spot in my heart for it though.
