Some time ago, I got this book from a secondhand bookstore and have since wanted to make Three for the Road ... because I think the bag looks really cool. I searched in my stash to find something to use. I finally decided on using the leftovers (almost 2 skeins!) from my first sweater. I could have used them for a scarf if the yarn weren't so itchy to my skin. A bag would be perfect for itchy wool! A fast knit, indeed. On Saturday night, I got this:
My experience of using unfelted knitted bag is that it had better be lined ... otherwise, the weight of the stuff you put inside would pull the fabrics down, making the bag out of shape. So, my mission this week is to find a zipper and some lining fabrics to finish the bag. I don't have a sewing machine and am not planning to buy one yet, so everything has to be hand sewn ... a new advanture to me!
Update on mammography: Received the result on Saturday - "Congratulations! Everything looks normal ... see you next year." YAY!
