You Gotta Knit One....



I love this bag! I think it turned out great. I am also making another I-cord in the mustard color as well and a little longer. I-cord handle wasn't in the directions. It was a crocheted one starting with a chain of 400!! I wasn't going to do that! I didn't block it. Maybe I should to stretch the insides some since it's fair isle. I must say though that the inside looks pretty darn good too! The bottom closure was neat too. You crochet it closed. I hope I don't tire of knitting another! It's a Mission Falls pattern in their Harvest 2001 book.
I've got the yarn ready for another but I need to get back to my Karabella and Starmore sweaters. I've just proved to myself though that with determination I can finish a project from the get go without picking up and or starting another one!!! It was a rare occasion!
