The Big Booga Bag is all done. Side one:
In answer to Lisa’s question in yesterday’s comments, this bag is knitted from self striping yarn, so there are no color changes. But if I were making a bag with several colors, whether I knitted in the tails or weaved (wove?) them after knitting would probably not matter. As a rule, I tend to weave rather than knit in, but there’s really no reason why you couldn’t do either.
She has a neckband! Here it is, in its unfinished state. There’s a facing that will be sewn down on the inside.
Lucy checked the instructions while I was knitting.
The diet continues. Lolly, you are a very bad girl to try to tempt me with new yarn. Hang your head in shame!
And thanks to Kimberley for her offer of moral support! One always needs a buddy on a diet. Especially when more than one of your friends says “You? On a yarn diet? Ha ha ha!”
A question in my comments yesterday about my yarn buying habits pre-diet. Nothing consistent — if I saw something I’d like, I’d buy it. I bought as though I feared the iminent extinction of sheep. But I could go long periods of time without yarn purchases. If there was nothing that tempted me.
I am a fickle girl!
Check out our total! I think we’re well on the way to a seventh basket, thanks to you generous people!
