Back a few weeks ago, I posed a question to you guys - when should I celebrate my blogiversary... well, since I have now oops-ed by two days, I guess I'll have to wait a little longer if I want to extol the virtues and benefits of blogging.... I am such a ding-dong sometimes (I was born a blond).
Oh well. Onward. I have been working feverishly on my BYO Bag. It is almost done (see?).
It is a little different from the original (the blue and lime ones below were knit by the designer, Moira Ravenscroft),
but I like to think of my changes as improvements, variations. Or, I like to stray from the pattern so as to imprint my own sense of style? Ok, so you don't buy any of that? Here's my rationale: (1) I used stash which did not include enough of the suggested yarn to make an entire bag and I did not want to spend any money right now (2) I like variegated yarns; and (3) what the heck? I went for it! LOL. I decided to introduce subtle changes by moving from seed stitch to stockinette to show differences in texture instead of changes in color. It is really hard to tell in this photo though, so once I get it completed, I'll post another photo so we can see if my changes work. Either way, it will be a useful bag and one I will enjoy for a long time to come.
Happy Tax Day, fellow Americans!
