Journey to my knitted shoulder bag!!

Now that the children are old enough to carry their own stuff...it is time for a small knitted shoulder bag for me!
After a discussion on Crafty Mamas about a knit a long, I decided on this pattern.
Big enough for wallet, keys and phone for those quick trips to the shops.

I could have chosen one of the many delishes yarns I have here but no..I decided to dye my own lol

Here is 100 grams of 8ply Spotlight yarn, wound on my niddy noddy to make a skein

A rainbow of colours where chosen and spurted on my yarn


Then zapped, rinsed and dried next, then onto the ball winder. How fun are these..yes the WHOLE family had a turn!

Here is my finished yarn. I am really happy with it!!



I took this photo early last night, by bed time I had finished the front and half way through the tab. Tonight I will start on the back of the bag.


It is knitting up real nice isn't it!!
I will hopefully have finished photos by the end of the week..
