Knitting's my Bag
The Christine Bag was designed by Dawn Roach and I love how it turned out. I added a couple of rows to the original design to accommodate my large clutch style wallet.
I knitted it in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick on really large wooden needles. The handles are lacquered bamboo, the lining is sparkly black with pink dots and it has a magnetic closure.
I'd seen these bags on Etsy selling for $60. They are definitely worth that and more. Craftsmen and craftswomen should be paid for their time and talent. I love the bag and will make it larger next time and I'll change out the ribbon for a more rustic look - maybe something with beads and leather.
