I love baskets. My favourite baskets are Longaberger, but thankfully for both my pocket and my marriage, they aren’t available in New Zealand. Baskets are the perfect household accessory in my opinion, as they are both beautiful and functional. So when I found Entrelac Knitting, I almost burst with excitement. Knitting that looks like basketweave!!! Oh my.
So I did lots of searching, and found an ENTRELAC BAG PATTERN. Well knock me flat. That is for ME!
I ran a bag swap on The Nappy Network and decided that this would be one of the bags I would send. My recipient was Miss Kelly of Incidental Happiness and one of her requests was a project bag. I found some Noro Kureyon that was grays, greens and blues (a tad of lavendar, sorry Kelly) and knit up the small version of the bag.
I love how the colour changes so nicely with the Kureyon. I am a dope though, as I forgot to line to bag!!! Ugh.
So, I have one in progress for me too. It’s Kureyon again, only this time I did the bag without the flap and added a few extra rows of the entrelac. Of course, it was after i had done this, that I couldn’t find the third ball of wool! So, here it sits, almost done. Just awaiting a handle. Oh, and a lining!
