I love Knitting!
This is my 'hate plastic, love knit' shoulder bag that I finished recently. It took me longer than I thought but I'm very happy with the results. It's the first time I've knit in cotton and I liked it a lot! No wool splitting but you have you be careful with your tension. I also learnt moss stitch which is used in the handles and the base pieces to give strength to the bag. Despite the original 'oooh, I'm learning a new stitch', I soon got bored with the repetitive of moss stitch and you have to concentrate a lot. ;o) Difficult when you're a knitter who likes watching the tele at the same time! hehe. The pattern is from the British knitting magazine 'Simply Knitting' which I love and I added a lining to the bag myself and the ribbon binding to give the bag more shape.
What's my next project going to be?
