I love knitting. It keeps me sane. Well according to my family nothing can keep me sane, but I love knitting just the same.
I made the bag so I would have a posh bag for Christmas Day. I finished it just in time. The outside that is, I still have to line it.
I'm not sure about the handles. They came out shorter than I expected. They are felted in with the bag so I am giving some thought as how to make them longer or replace them altogether.
I did use it on Christmas Day, however, and it matched my outfit beautifully.
Wrist warmers or fingerless mitts, whatever you call them, have become my favourite thing to make and wear
Great for dog walking as they keep my hands and wrists warm but I still have full use of my fingers. Very useful when dealing with a playful terrier!
I make mine longer than the usual ones so I can hide the tubigrips I sometimes have to wear and so don't have to answer the question "What have you done?".
I really like this pattern with the cables up the front knitted in 100% wool they are lovely and warm.
I did make a mistake however. The TV must have had an exciting moment. Can you spot it?
No prizes as it does rather leap out at you I think.
On to the next knit now ;0)
