My Needlework Mojo Is Back
Thanks to tanysewsandknits sheilazcrochetz, themahoganystylist and all the other knitters whose blogs I visited. The items you knitted or crocheted inspired my crochet/ knitting mojo to re-emerge. Over the holidays Tany posted her beautiful version of the Dublin Bag and the snow drift cardigan; Cenetta posted photos of hats and scarf and Sheila posted photos of warm & toasty looking socks and a nice & cozy blanket.
During the holiday madness I bought acrylic yarn, found my knitting needles and this was the result. Here is my bag. The pattern for this bag can found at lionbrand.com
Tawny posted the address of a blogger who posted instruction on a knock off version the Dublin Bag. Unfortunately, it is in Portuguese and I don't understand the instructions. Does anyone know of a site where the instructions are posted in English or Spanish?
Here is the inside of the bag. I used cotton, and the wrong side of the fabric, because the right side was dark purple and I wanted a contrast. The fabric was from my collection. I also found a website that had instruction about how to insert a lining in a crochet bag.
This is not even close to the Dublin bag, however I am happy with the results and I am planning to make a few more bags using other type of yarns.
Of course I will purchase more yarns after March 30.
