Cabled Bag WIP

I changed this pattern to include some crochet, the bootom of the bag is crochet and I am using all my Hand dyed wool in orange shades. SO to answer some questions , I am using two strands of yarn at the same time, one of the strands is Sari SIl Yarn and the Other one is Wool worsted weight, so itis almost like having a chunky yarn, that is why I am using US 10 Circulars. Sari Silk yarn is pretty , but until know I have not found anything to make with it that looks nice.

Firts yarn is from Ebay, probably Kool_aid dyed, The second yarn is recycled sari silk yarn. It is going to be a very lovely Tote bag. It is a bag that is made on the flat, but I decided to make it on the round and added some extra stitches . It is a very tight knit as I am knitting it through the back loop.I am hoping to have I-cords straps. Thanks for stopping by!

I really like the colours, Andy. It is going to be a crowd stopper.

Visit Crafty Andy's Blog I did not color the yarn, I got it from ebay. I am sure it was Kool Aid colored, but it works well with the Sari Silk yarn!
