Limbering up for the Ravelympics
Ever since I first saw this pattern in Handknit Holiday's I've coveted a bag like this.
I've started it several times, and several times it's been quite the disaster.
But not this time. This time it's been a triumph.
Pattern: Counterpane Carpet Bag (ravlink) from Handknit Holidays
Yarn: 2 balls of Silk Garden from Purl's Palace
Modifications: I just knit for one ball per side. Four repeats in total.
Notes: Lined in chartreuse wool felt, wooden handles from hobbysew. Instead of handstitching I machine stitched the lining with invisible thread. The sewing is apalling, but the bag is gorgeous.
Tomorrow I'm going to post something that I need a little help with. I've finished a little baby knit, but I don't know if it's fabulous or hideous.
Will you help me decide?
