Knitting with Fabric





I finished another sample. This is something you can do with all that fabric stash just sitting around. You know, the stash you bought a long time ago and now wonder why? Perhaps it was only the color after all. Here is what I do with some of my unused stash. I knit with it. Oh, alright, sometimes I buy fabric just for this; but, you don't have to. I must tell you that not ALL fabric works with this. Sometimes it can be just too ugly. I started this "sample" using an ugly fabric that just didn't get any better with knitting. It was already cut and rolled into neat little balls and I thought that it would save time. And, it should have. Only as I went along, it actually got depressing it was so bad. That is when I took it off my needles and marched over to the circular file and dumped it. Too bad I didn't get a picture first.
But you can see the happy fabric I decided to use.
And this is the end product. A very cute purse or tote. It is lined with the pink and has pockets. (Two Wacky Women has a pattern for this and Crocheting with Fabric)
