My first knitted bag! It was also my first cabled pattern. I am rather proud of it. It's a rather nice repetative pattern, so good for a first timer, I guess. Also the yarn is so scrumptious, one section really reminds me of belgian chocolate! I really do love self patterning yarn. This is a discontinued yarn (story of my k life!)
I knitted the strap seperate and sewed it to create the sides of the bag. The whole bag is lined, in a yummy olive lining silk, though the strap was lined with a co-ordinating length of wide ribbon. It has a loop fastening around a beautiful ceramic button.
I am very proud of this bag.
