My Cabled Hottie

I've been tidying up a lot lately and have found a use for my cath kidston bag which came with the book 'Sew!'

I have perfected my organisation lately. I have two pairs of scissors now, one upstairs at my desk for when I work with felt and one pair downstairs near the sofa for when I knit. I have a pincushion near the sofa and one on my desk. I have all the wool I need for two projects I'm working on in this bag and a selection of knitting needles by the sofa too. Whenever I sit down now I'm ready to go!


I'm working on a hot water bottle cover and so far my cabled pattern seems to working well. The width of the water bottle was 21cm and my cable pattern worked out to be 25cm. As I started to knit the cable pattern I realised I had forgotten to allow for the cable to bunch up making the width smaller. So now it's perfect!

My other project isn't working out so well. The start of my grey bag was ok but I'm having to really concentrate so hard on the chart that it isn't at all relaxing.



Which I need it to be at the moment unfortunately. I will go back to it and write out the chart in symbols!

I totally need to get myself some organisational bags - I have some huge boxes that I leave around the flat and then get told off for being messy! Bags = more subtle but just as effective! Your hot water bottle knit is looking good...

I used my free bag to store my nail polish in! It wasn't really big enought to use as a handbag. Just found your blog and love it! I have a blog to, http://thegingerbreadbunny.blogspot.com/.
