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!

Don't worry though, I won't make the materials wait outside on the bench -
they can come inside until I'm ready for them!
