For this design team term we are introducing to you a new category of interest: knitting and crocheting with twine! So many paper crafters also knit or crochet so we think that it's a good fit. We looked for someone for our team who loves to knit and crochet and found Ann Molvik. We gave her a supply of Twinery Twine and she was off and running.
Ann's first project is a Market Tote knitted using Buttercream Twine. YUM!
And here is the pattern that she used to create this tote: http://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/2007/6/28/elisas-nest-tote.html
The bag took about 175 yards to create and each spool of Twinery Twine is 240 yards so you will have twine left over for other projects.
Ann thought that this tote would be great to take to the Farmer's Market but her son Nathaniel thought that it was perfect to store his plastic veggies!
If you knit or crochet, think about using Twine in your projects. And if you don't knit or crochet, perhaps Ann's projects will inspire you to give it a try. Twine is such a wonderful fiber. It's 100% cotton, 4 ply, strong and will not fade. And it's Made in the USA! And if you do decide to knit or crochet with twine, please post your projects to our Flickr. We would love to see what you do!
