Plain Jane Knits Up A Storm

A few musings about my needlecraft hobbies - knitting, crocheting, quilting, & cross-stitch along with my other love, genealogy. While growing up, I used to HATE the term "Plain Jane", but when it comes to knitting & crocheting, I've realized that I really *am* a Plain Jane in that I don't use fancy yarns.

It's A Purse.. It's A Suitcase.. It's Big Bad Bag

I just finished the Big Bad Bag and as promised it really really is BIG.. Pre-felted measurements are 28" x 13", with a 22" x 12" base and approximately 33" handles.

It was worked with a chunky black yarn and a double strand of worsted weight beige - both recycled from garage sale sweaters. I used size 13 needles and the gauge is 11 st & 16 rows to 4". I can't wait to felt this one - hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday.

And I can't wait to see the results! Felting pictures are fun.
