SATCHEL OUTING

My satchel down at Oneroa Beach. Even at the beginning of winter, the beaches are still the best place to be here on Waiheke Island. Magic.
Close-up detail of moss stitch, and the handcrafted textiles of Mexico. The two work together well visually, though the purse didn't inspire my design. Double thick moss stitch is a very practical and robust effect. I love using two different yarns together at random, no matter how slight the variations are, to create unexpected pops of colour. I also find it personally more fun to work with.
