Bag in Rowan Holiday Sand
However I can not take full credit for this bag as Arianwen kindly offered to give it that special touch. In fact I felt very lazy, as she took the pieces of the bag that I made that weekend home with her & when I sent her the last bits, she put it all together with something firm in the base, wadding & a beautiful lining. I tried to thank her in the best way possible & sent her some gifts to show my gratitude.
Marine Turtle lining
My SIL has three children so I made sure to say that there was 'something inside the contents' (the bag) that was just for her & she agreed when she opened it:
Little extra treat
Yarn: 4 x 50g of Rowan Holiday in Sand
The pattern was one supplied at the workshop & it was meant to be decorated with a bow made of the same yarn but I didn't like it so left it off.
Needles: 8mm Knit Pick Options.
Modifications: The lining & wadding, a figure of 8 piece of I-cord which I used as a closure on the I cord & a magnetic clasp.
I didn't enjoy knitting with Rowan Holiday but I did like the finished fabric. It has a lovely drape & would be nice for a Spring/Summer cardigan so I would use it again. SIL absolutely loved it & says that is just big enough for her purse, phone & keys.
