I think knitting looks relaxing and fun (no idea why) so I began this wool bag project well over a year ago, picking it up from time to time but not making much progress after a year's time. I've decided that I am simply not much of a knitter. DD1, D' is a knitter. She creates magical things from wool yarn - I do not and I don't care, lol. One day I handed the supplies to D' and asked (okay, begged) her to PLEASE turn this into a bag! The bag I started is the one pictured here (with white buttons). It's fine. A perfectly nice bag...but.
D' had better ideas. I love this bag! It's far better suited for my needs and is amazingly beautiful as well. The cable design is done perfectly.
I love it. Thanks D'!
PS: Here is the link where you will find a wonderful knitter's blog and the instructions for making this bag. Enjoy! http://knittinginmybackyarn.blogspot.com/2009/09/braided-cable-handle-tote-free-pattern.html
