Coming Right Along
As you can see, I've been busy with construction of the diaper bag. I chose to cast on with the knitting needs and do the bottom of the bag in a seed stitch, using two strands of yarn to make it extra durable. I'm liking the look!
I have decided to knit the lining in stockinette stitch also using two strands of yarn. It is turning out great! I have ideas for a trim edge at the top of the bag, and the shoulder straps. I was thinking of a short-stubby crocheted fringe around the top. For the lining I just picked up stitches at the top of the bag and did stockinette stitch on circular needles. It's working very well.
I have to post a couple pics of an afghan I have had for years, made by my Grandma. It's my favorite. My Grandma had an eye for color and was very talented with crochet, and the sewing machine!!! I love her eye for design!
Phoebe had to get in on the fun when the camera was out!! She looks so cute on the afghan...my little comfort hound!
