It all started when I was pregnant with kid #3. I had been using a Winnie the POO (pun intended) diaper bag for 5 years strait and the thought of lugging it around for another 3 years WAS UNBEARABLE!!! At the same time, I noticed a woman with a cute over sized bag and asked about it. When I found out how it was made, I thought, I can do that. And I did! Then all of my neighbors wanted one.
I am completely a self taught knitter. When I was an EXTREMELY BORED kid, I fashioned some needles from the dowels I pulled off of a couple of wooden coat hangers. I used an encyclopedia to learn the knit and purl stitches .
I did not touch another pair of needles again until I was 34 and needed that diaper bag. Since then, I have sold hundreds of bags, over 2,000 patterns. Although I mostly self publish, my designs have been included in bestselling books, magazines and knitting calendars.
Knits up quickly.
Perfect for clogs on chilly days.
Compliments variegated AND self striping yarns....and of course semi-solid and solids as well:)
Although it fits my sizable cankles, it will work for those of you with average legs too:) Sizing modifications are simple and are included.
Add a suede slipper sole and you've got a rocking pair of slippers to plod about the house in.
What's a cankle? When your calf is so large that it seems to blend into your foot with no tapering at the ankle.......................its oh so sexy and feminine. Why? After 8 years of field hockey and catching for my softball teams ALONG with my Scottish HIGHLANDER DNA, I have developed an impressive case of cankles. NOTE: My cankles are NOT fat! If you call them fat AND I hear you, I'll use my power cankles to chase after you:)
