I've been busy with politics but had been getting on with a few projects just before the chaos of the local election campaign began. I've been knitting my cable hottie. I love picking this up when I'm on the sofa as I know the pattern off by heart now.
I also undid a horrible v-neck jumper I knitted a couple of years ago in big wool. I finally decided I would never wear it so undid the four balls (good job too as that's worth £32). I've knitted it into a tote bag from a pattern by Kim Hargreaves:
It looks a bit of a mess at the moment as I had to improvise with the handles. I extended the pattern so the bag would be exactly A4 sized. I have a thing for A4 bags that you can slip a folder in. Don't ask me why! Perhaps it's because handbags are rarely big enough for my demands...
So anyway I ran out of dark blue wool for the handles after doing that so I had to undo a hat (which again I've never worn) for the green/blue colour to alternate for the handles. I think it should look ok. The green/blue colour will be a break from all that blue.
I can't wait to sew it together : )
