The knitting bug has struck again. So while I've been watching TV each evening I have also been knitting lots of colourful charity jumpers and hats.
I fancied knitting something else so when The Little Knitting Company asked on FaceBook for sample knitters for a Create and Craft TV show I thought why not. Then I got the kit. I immediately loved the cotton tape yarn but the pattern - yikes! Cables I remember how to do but bobbles...no idea!
I had a practice with some scrap yarn and got the bobbles on the second attempt - read the pattern carefully Anne - LOL!
I love the finished result but know that if I'd bought this I would have given up after the easy iPod holder. So it was a lesson in how not to give up because the yarn is too nice and I might spoil it!
Here is the finished bag along with the phone holder and iPod holder.
This is my iPad modelling the bag.
Finally here is a close up of the stitches. The colour is a lovely gold and much nicer than it looks here or on TV. I think it was the mustard option. It was odd seeing it on TV and knowing I knitted it. Hopefully it will return here one day to keep my iPad warm on these cold winter nights.
