A Borders card that I received at Christmas was burning a hole in my pocket. I finally took time to go in and browse and the timing was perfect.
Veronik Avery's new book "Knitting 24/7" had just been released.
The subtitle is "30 Projects to Knit, Wear, and Enjoy, On the Go and Around the Clock"
Well that says it all. There are quite a few in here that I want to eventually try. It is probably no surprise that I went straight for a bag.
Oh, sorry. Have I said that before?
This one is called Leafy Knot Clutch and is the same overall shape as this sewn one, often called a Japanese Knot Bag. Bonus for me is that it is knitted in a lovely leaf design.
The pattern calls for 2 balls of DK weight cotton. I had this one lovely lonely skein of Louet MerLin (a 70% merino/30% linen) that Mary sent from a Knitters Review retreat.
I love, love, love how the yarn is working for this even though it is worsted weight and I'm using bigger needles. Even though I do not have enough yarn. Sob.
I'm going to try to find another skein. If not I'll get other yarn because I Must Make This Bag.
