Sneak Peek: Etsy Update, July 31, 2011

Here ya go, a look at the new piecework Cinch Sacks going up in the Etsy shop tonight, 9pm EST. These large drawstring project bags can be slung over your shoulder, or carried by the loopy handle. Yup, there are pockets inside, and a lasso for your keys or scissors, or to use as a yarn guide if you prefer. Stop by for a late night visit!

My current work in progress? Funny you should ask!

The purpose of tonight's post is twofold:

First of all, I want to show you my progress on Laura Aylor's amazing "Litchfield Shawl."

I'm making it in MadelineTosh Merino Light, in three colors: well water, grasshopper, and antler. It's a simple knit ... miles of stockinette. But every once in awhile you do some very clever short row sections, which give the shawl the eye-catching undulating lines that are just now beginning to develop in mine.

Here's a link to Laura's project page on Ravelry: .

Oh, and by the way? Did you notice the project bag that's protecting my Litchfield? There will be some similar to that, coming soon to Etsy!! I'm having a blast doing some piecework, mixing prints and colors. So stay tuned, that update is right around the proverbial corner .... at

Sneak Peek: Etsy Update, July 29, 2011

There will be a few new Snapdragon Pouches available in the Etsy shop on Friday, July 29 at noon EST. What's that you say? You want a sneak peek? Well, yes, indeedy, I can do that!

I'm also excited about some new bags I've been working on. While my Loopy Lulu Bags are perfect for smallish works-in-progress like shawls and socks, these new bags will be really well suited to larger projects. My fingers are crossed for a sunny day tomorrow, so I can get some pix. Soon as that happens, I'll post a sneak peek here and on Facebook; I'm hoping to list these new bags in the Etsy shop sometime this weekend.

PS: Don't forget to come on over and "like" That Clever Clementine on Facebook! There will be some fun things coming up, and Fb friends will be among the first to hear about them.
