Welcome to Project Knitway or should I say Project Renottaway? It's my cyberspace place to post my favorite things...thoughts about family and creativity and design. One of my favorite things is making stuff, specifically clothing and accessories from fiber and metal. So you'll see a lot about that here. I also love spending time with my family, so there will be a bit about that too. When I'm not with my family or in my studio, I am most likely at nextdoor, my store. I have always had a store ever since I was a young woman. I started with a weaving store called the niddy noddy in Waukesha eons ago. I ended with nextdoor in Brookfield. It's my dream store filled with great clothing, especially denim. Really nice women work and shop there, it's a fun place to be. You can find us there every day and online at www.shopatnextdoor.com So come for a visit here and there.

In the Bag or Get Looped

It's not that I haven't been knitting. I just haven't been blogging about it. So this is the next addition to my fall collection for nextdoor. I knit the bag on my bulky machine using one of my favorite fairisle animal patterns. I lined it with a wool tweed fabric and added tassels and African beads for an ethnic look. I had just enough yarn left over for a continuous scarf with loop fringe. Kind of nice to think about wearing this on a crisp November day, especially lately with all our oppressive hot weather we have been having.
