The Mystery WIP

I always seem to be posting about what I've made on this blog. But a couple of weeks ago I thought I'd throw a little bit of fun by having a game of "guess the WIP" by posting a picture of what was on my needles at the time.

So anyhow I finished the mystery project last week and the correct answer is............a small project bag

I got pretty sick of carrying small projects with this largish tote bag that my friend gave me so I decided to make something small, simple and easy to carry small projects out and about. So I made this bag using 2 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran which I found in my stash that I completely forgot I had.

I used this pattern: Small Project Bag which I found on Raverly. It was quite an easy pattern to do, and another beginner project for those that want to venture in the world of knitting in the round on DPNS. I followed the pattern exactly, however I added an extra repeat to make the bag a little bit bigger.

The only thing that I need to do with this right now though is make the twisted cord. Aside from that, I'd also like to add lining and make the base more solid, which I'm pretty scared to do as I don't really sew so I'm wondering how to go about it exactly.....I may ask my sister to show me what to do..but if any of you have any advice or tips on how to go about it, that would be very helpful.

I'm very sad to say that those that guessed, didn't win the Angel Knit Kit. I'm wondering if its because it was too difficult to guess, or whether people didn't like the kit...or whether it was because of my stupidity in adding the project to Raverly so most of you probably knew what it was, anyway lol. Oh well...I thought i'd do something fun with this blog but guess it didn't really work huh?

I've also got another FO, but I will do a blog post on that in a few days. I just wanted to keep this post as short as possible.

But until then...
