one month 'til Christmas...


More FO's in time for Christmas. This one is a bag from Interweave Knits' website, with a few of my own modifications.



I made this for my sister-in-law, and am quite safe in blogging it, as I know none of my family even go near blogs, let alone mine!

I used Cascade 220 in Cherry and Summer Sky, and I added a blue-with-red-polka-dots cotton lining. I also added an eyelet row to accommodate a ribbon detail and rather than use the recommended i-cord for the handle, I used a twisted upholstery cord. It's lightly felted (or "fulled", as I have learned it to be known!), so is also another success on that front for me!

Couldn't be more pleased with how it's turned out! Hope my lovely SIL likes it just as much!
