More of the bag.
some of the trees at night. This side of the road gets very little sun and the trees still have ice on the branches. Every time I drive by them, the lights from my car and the street light make them sparkle like little Christmas lights. You'll probably need to click on the picture to see them.
Last night I added a decorative edging to the bag.
I think it will be more of a basket cover than a bag though. It's big.
I need to work more on my seaming too. I really like the idea of this bag, but it is not what I had hoped it would be. I'll see how it looks once it has it's ties on and is tied.
It didn't shrink as much as I had hoped either. There is still quite a bit of stitch definition. I think I would have gotten more of a felting look if I had used a 6mm needle instead of the 7mm. I'm going to felt the brown and blue bag I made previously and see how that works out. It's made with the same yarn on 6mm needles so I'll see if I am right. If I like that one better, I may end up sending that one instead. It's more of a bag anyway.
I think I will start looking around for a book on knit purses so I can see how to make a square or rectangular bag with a zipper. I think this bag would have been much better if I knew how to set it up for one.
I seem to be thinking a lot in this post.
