Chunky Knitting

I hate to admit it but I think our summer may just have been and gone :o(  There are some who say it will be back in August but I’ve been hearing that for the last few years so I can’t help but doubt it.  But every cloud has a silver lining and mine is that I’m back knitting. 

I got this lovely scarf last year in the charity shop for a euro, purely for the wool.  I finally got round to ripping it up, before checking the lable … oops it was a rather good make .. Gant.  Oh well I’ve started knitting it up into a bag.  Yep, another knitted bag!! 

I have no pattern, I’m just winging it.  I want to make one of those square bags with a handle like a button hole … surely it can’t be that hard??

So far it looks like this. 

(By the way, the table cloth in the background – only 50p from a car boot the last time I was in London – love it !).

Right I better get it finished as I’m meeting up with the Cast Offs tomorrow for our weekly knitting group.

Before I forget, thank you so much for all your well wishes. I’m happy to say I’m feeling much better now and have lots to share with you over the next week!
