Mini Project

Thank you so much for all the compliment on the Madli's shawl. Now, I have more confident to knit up another shawl in the near future.

Not much knitting has been done in the past one week. I only managed to knit up a small cable bag. This is my first time knitting a bag actually. I struggle a bit to get the exact size for the bag as the cable actually shrink the size of the bag. But luckily I got some advise from Laura.

The bag is knitted with 2 balls of Hamanaka wool on needle size 5.5mm. Its a fast knit, and actually took about couple of hours to knit up. Well, whatI can say is the bag is in time for a friend's wedding dinner this weekend. Do you think this is suitable?

Thats all for now, I got to check my stash and decide what to knit up next.
