|Finished Ilene Bag|
WOW. This is finally finished. Ok I didn’t take very long to knit this particular bag. But this yarn has been on and off the knitting needles for several times. I bought the yarn 3 years ago and was in the process of knitting this Mary’s Summer bag. But I screwed up somewhere along the way. I was still beginning to learn to knit then. Consequently, I decided to frog it all together. I have tried crocheting a bag out of it a few times too, but I just couldn’t get a base of the right size.
|Original bag that I was knitting|
Then, I came across the free pattern for Ilene Bag on Ravelry and I knew that I have to knit this bag, in this yarn. More importantly, I have to finish it.
And I did. Phew. I’m not very sure if I have an extra ball of this yarn back home in Singapore. I certainly hope not. Although I love the colours, I think I have had enough of looking at this yarn on my needles.
But isn’t the bag pretty? 🙂 I made a rather long strap so that I could either use it as a sling bag or a shoulder bag.
I feel like a hippy. Just give me a vast grassy field and I’ll be laying there with this bag by my side.
