A Girl Can Never Have Enough Bags

That's right, I do have a weakness for bags - both handbags & knitting bags. So when I saw this bag on Donna's etsy store I just cannot resist buying it.

I am so glad that I did as the bag is gorgeous. The fabric is lovely & so well done. I love the round base & it's just the right bag for my new project which I have just cast on.


My big ball of yarn fits right in - it's Fleece Artist BFL 2/28 & it's a hugh skein of 1000 yds. I just cast on this cardigan as I want something that I can slip on when the weather becomes warmer. Actually it's not really a cardigan as I see it as a vest. Anyway, I am only using the pattern as a template as the original is knitted in bulky yarn & I am using a 3ply. I like the shape of the cardi & also the top down construction.

I have finished knitting my new shawl & the pattern is now being tested. Here's a little peek ......

I have one of Donna's bags too, they have so much room and are perfect for knitting larger projects!

You definitely can't have too many bags and I love the way the cake of wool fits in the bottom!!
