The Bag knits a bag

I am busy knitting a bag (aka tote) for an exchange. Man, it is such fun - my new fav thing to knit. You can be as plain or as ott(over-the-top) creative as you want.














But, for this swap, I managed to keep my creative juices in check and am knitting a relatively staid cabled bag. I am using variegated yarn from Peru or Chile or Mexico ... one of them Souf American cities!!! So maybe it comes from a push-me-pull-you or a yak or a cactus - who knows ....
(And don't you go thinking the colours look like sha-khi - cross between shit and khaki, the true colours are actually olive green and a khaki yellow - very camoflaugy - well, my swapee did say she liked natural colours and what could be more natural than green and yellow weeds?)


Anyway, I digress .... I was so excited and enthusiastic with the knitting of this bag, that I did this .........







Ooooops!! Broke my circular needle - on its very first outing too.

Nevermind, a spot of superglue and we were good to go again .....

I will post pics of the finished product once said Swapee has received it ... try to control your curiosity!!

How fast were you knitting to break your needles? Calm down woman! You cannot create knitty steam in such a warm climate without suffering consequences! DD - make her a coffee, and get her to slow down!
