Well, now, isn’t this just the cutest thing? Points to Knit Nook for knowing the beaded felted doo-dads at the end of the i-cord would be just the perfect touch. They really make the project, don’t they? Since our next Knit Along is a complicated lace stitch, I’ve already started a second smaller bag to be my keep-in-the-handbag-for-spare-knitting-moments project. In stripy sock yarn just like I was hoping to try.
I’ve decided it’s the ruffle top that makes this work. Gives it a charming touch whereas it’d be just a pouch otherwise. With the ruffle and the felt beads, it’s got just a little kick of style. If you’re going to put a significant amount of effort into a container, you want it to pay off in style and charm.
I suppose you could say (if you were a punster like myself), with this project the payoff is...in the bag.
Yeah, I know, it was a cheap shot, but it’s the holidays so cut me a little slack.
Happy New Year, DestiKNITers!
