Bags and Tags

There's been a lot going on at Tangerine Designs headquarters this month! 

First of all, I've been on a sewing marathon. In addition to updates, I'm preparing backstock for SSK, hosted by The Knit Girllls. SSK (Super Summer Knitogether) is a knitting retreat held in Nashville, TN. The market, in which I'll be vending, will be open to the public on Saturday, July 20, from 1-4. So, if you are in the area, please stop by!

During this sewing spree, I've added eight new designs: Pigeon Dreams, Pigeon Run, My Mustache!, Ray Gun, Mike Teevee, Put Your Records On, Stargate SG-1, and To Boldly Go. There will be at least one of each in this week's Shop Update, June 9 at 7 p.m. CDT. 

In addition to the new bags, I'll be adding some new paper tags on Sunday. Hand Knit with Love tags will come in sets of 5. They have an added bonus of check boxes on the back for laundering care. There'll be another style available soon.

WIP to Finished Object tags are made for putting on the ring of your Tangerine Designs bags. Keep track of what project is in your bag, and never have the problem of wondering what pattern or yarn you were using. 

When done with your project, you can cross out the WIP and use the tag for journaling your knits. You can also punch an extra hole, add a sample of the yarn you used, and keep on a book ring. I'll be adding one of these tags to each project bag purchased. I'll have Starter Kits (5 tags and a book ring) and refills (5 tags) available in the shop at update time on Sunday.

Just as a reminder, Knit In Public week starts Saturday, June 8th. So, get out there and scare some Muggles! If you do KIP with your Tangerine Designs bag, I'd love to see a picture in the Ravelry Group!
