Here is my new knitting bag. Yes?...What's that you say? I already have knitting bags? Well...you may be right. But, I don't have a bag like this---A bag that is an explosion of color and that brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.
The Birdie Sling by Amy Butler is a lovely if somewhat tedious pattern. While making this I did wonder more than once why every single piece needed to be lined. And, yet when I finally pulled the lining out and flipped the bag right side out, I saw it. I saw the beauty of the entire process. Now, I believe I will make another of these delightful bags. I am loving how it fits on my arm and how with the inside pockets I have room for all the things I need for knitting bliss. I highly recommend this pattern.
More than anything, it is inspiring me to knit even more. Which I didn't think was possible. So heres to a weekend of knitting and places to go so I can take my new bag.
