Tutorial Tuesday - Weekender Bag
This is going to be my next knitting project - but I'm not allowed to start it until I've finished at least two current projects!! I'm dreadful when I see a new project I want to do as I just want to cast on there and then, especially if I can use yarn I've already got in my stash, but I need to be stricter with myself about finishing! I think I'll have to post pictures of my WIPs, as if I show you, I might be shamed into finishing them!
Anyway, I thought I'd show you this great bag as Hilary (the designer - you can find her blog at www.mypurlsofwisdom.wordpress.com) came up with a really cool and very easy way of adding handles and a gathering closure at the top of the bag using a belt and recycling an old handbag. I've managed to get what I need from one of the local charity shops, so below are my materials ready and waiting - but only to be cast on when I've cast off AND sewn up at least two WIPs! If you'd like to make your own, you can find the instructions here!
