COMING ATTRACTIONS: French Market Bag

PROJECT: French Market Bag
RECIPIENT: Me
MATERIALS: vintage Patons Aero rug wool in pink and green and Sultana rug wool in brown. I like to think of them as 'Musk', 'Leaf' and 'Chocolate'.
EQUIPMENT:
PATTERN: Polly Outhwaite's French Market Bag from Knitty Winter 2003.
CHECK LIST:
  • Ball skeins 29 Dec '05
  • tension square 3 Jan '06 4.5mm needles produced 22 stitches/29 rows over st st, so a the yarn isn't as thick as I thought it was.
  • test felt
  • knit
  • felt

  • NOTES: I can't help it, it's just too damn cute and there's this 500g of lucious vintage Patons rug wool in the stash that remind me of petit fours so it's culturally appropriate.
