So scattered that, even though I have just a little bit more left to do on the Hardanger project you saw last post, I just didn't feel like returning to it this evening.
This past weekend I ran across some beads while looking for something else. Isn't that the way it always goes?!
Just inexpensive acrylic beads, but I left them out near the leftover ball of Eco-Cotton Blend from the last bag thinking I might could come up
with some use for the combination of the two.
Ravelry to the rescue.
I just typed in 'beads' and 'bag' into the advanced pattern search field and then narrowed the results to knitted bags. Even then most of the results were not what I was looking for, but it didn't take long to glance over them and find something I liked.
Since I didn't have too many beads, I thought I'd probably have to randomly place them around the bag, but then I happened upon a free pattern for a small bag with a beaded picot cast on. Perfect.
Of course I couldn't be bothered to read ahead, so it was only after I got the cast on complete that I learned the bag wasn't knit in the round, so I abandoned the rest of that pattern. This is as far as I got tonight, but it kept me amused and distracted from the weather!
