Sari Silk Bag

This yarn was a gift from my secret pal. She kindly sent me a pattern to use with it, which I did.

Once I had made the main piece, I had to decide on lining for the bag. I chose some left-over red/gold from my moulin rouge costume.

Then I added the lining and sewed it up down the sides.

Finally I made the icord for the strap.

Now I just need to find an appropriate button...


I started and finished this within a week. It's the "one skein scarf" from Stitch n Bitch: The Happy Hooker.

I like the detail, but because I used a finer yarn than recommended, I ended up doing two extra rows.

Autumn Fingerless Mittens

I have finished the fingerless mittens (from Simply Knitting) that I begun on a whim last week. These are a quick knit, and quite simple.

I think I might make a scarf to go with them as I have loads of the yarn left!
