Counterpane Carpet Bag


I dilly dallied over this project for far too long (started October 2007) and was held up by a fruitless search for bamboo handles big enough to slip over my shoulder. I ended up calling it a day and using the 8" circulars I had on hand. Sewing the lining was a bit of a struggle too, but luckily that's hidden from sight.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with the bag and will look forwarding to toting it around this fall. It measures about 17" long by 13" wide (at the mid point), so it's a good size for just about any knitting project.

Very nice! Is there a second bamboo handle hiding out of sight? From the photo it looks like it has only one handle...

Yep, there's two. It's just the angle, I guess.

your bag looks great! I hope you wore it someplace fun.

Thanks for all your comments about the fall blooms socks. They gave me a lot to think about.
