first day: I have the supplies and and on my way. Good grief, I think this is going to take all winter! Knitting in the round needles are required, and 100% wool.
It's just a knit stitch with 2 strands, although at some point I got turned backwards and went the wrong direction. Now, I have pearl stitch for the first several rows and knit from there on out. I think it will turn out ok, especially since it's on the bottom. I started with brown. It's 120 stitches cast(ed) on. Is there a past tense of cast?
End of week 2:
Brown, cream, grey, cream, black, grey, cream
I went ahead and sewed the bottom shut on my sewing machine and also sewed in corners. I didn't do my corners the way it was suggested, but rather how I do them on my tote bags. I hope I don't regret that when it's felting time. I went ahead and did this so that it could hold my yarn while I was working, also it helped me to visualize a finished bag.
End of week 3: My hands cramp up and fall asleep just looking at it. That's normal, right?
I have been having several etsy orders and am dealing with some probable carpal tunnel. I am going to have to finish up a little slower now. I will post a second post soon with the finished bag and the making of the straps and possibly a pocket. Hopefully this wrist thing will get better on it's own or at least hold off awhile longer. It's something that has come and gone since I was pregnant with Bee. Pregnancy does such lovely things to the body.
