Behold my first piece of knitting!
All done on size 19 (15mm) needles that I’ve bought for doing broomstick lace and using some bulky yarn. Started off by doing that I think may be a long tail cast on (where you use one needle and a thumb) and did just knit for the first few rows, then tried purling. Eventually got the hang of alternating rows to product something sensible looking. Once my Stitch n Bitch book arrives I’ll be able to do a bit more!
Soooo, here is my new beautiful bag! It arrived yesterday and here was my first glimpse of it – Trev unwrapped it for me on Skype and I took a couple of pics:
Upon getting home it’s absolutely gorgeous! So well made and just perfect. It’s a bit smaller than I thought – it looks quite big on the model on the Offhand site, and I am a bit taller and, ahem, chunkier than other girls. I am in love with this bag. Cannot wait to start using it next week! Here’s pictures I took today:
Thank you to my dear hubby for posing with the bag for me for those last 2 pictures. I was in my PJ’s, so in no state to be photographed!
To end, here’s a cute picture of Trev and Kooky taken this morning – keeping me company whilst I worked 🙂
