I found this pattern on Ravelry over Christmas and it just struck me. It is intended to be a bag for all of your knitting stuff. The good things about it are: 1) I learned a new stitch; 2) it does feel good on my shoulder; 3) it's a good size; 4) it opens quite widely so everything can fit inside easily.
What don't I like? Well, it will need to be lined to keep the knitting needles from falling through the holes in the sides. I did watch Miss Lucy back a crocheted blanket and I don't fancy the idea of putting myself through similar steps.
I think in the end it is just not me to carry a knitted purse. I like the color. I like the stitch. I like all of the things listed above, but I just do not see myself walking out of the house with a knitted bag. Live and learn, I guess. I am right back to knitting scarves for now.
Another FAL Q2 2013 project checked off the list! Next up: Charm Swap. The last set of charms arrived on Tuesday night so I can't wait to start sorting!
