Bagskets

My sister this year asked for a knitting starter kit and so I have bought her wool, needles and crochet hooks. I decided that this alone was not good enough and so I decided to make her some sort of knitting bag. I saw this tutorial, via the Sew mama sew blog and thought it would be perfect, because as well as anything else and the fact that they are just gorgeous, they would stop the wool unraveling all over the house as you knit. Then I had another challenge, you see i have 2 sisters and you know what it's like can't do for one without the other. So that's why there are 2.
I have a 3rd on the way. My Mum, the inspiration for my starting sewing should get one too I think so have almost finished her's in more neural colours. I will try to remember to photograph it tomorrow, amongst the veg prep!!! Hope your all having a merry time of it!!!
