One of the things I've knitted that I've kept for myself is this cute knitting bag. It was fun to knit, it's even more fun to carry around to be admired, and the pattern is free at Knitting Daily.com. All you have to do is register on their site and they have so many wonderful things available, why wouldn't you?

I made my bag out of Bernat Softee Chunky in Nature's Way #40012. I think this yarn is so pretty, this is the piece I chose to use for my masthead photo.

One thing I did change was the handles. They show flat garter stitch handles; I decided to make round I-Cord handles. I did get some fabric to sew in a lining, but just haven't done it. One of these days ...

And I finished knitting the Speed Stix afghan last night. I decided to single crochet around the edge, which isn't called for, but I think it gives stability and helps straighten out the tendency for the stockinette to curl. I'll be adding the fringe next.

I love carrying this bag with knitting projects in it. Great for sitting in waiting rooms.
