I know it's a shock - actual knitting content on what is - after all - a KNITTING blog!
The crossword bag being sewn up ....
... stay tuned for more photos soon AND the pattern on my web site!
Sunday addition : here the bag is all sewn up. I realised then that the tags of the nice leather handles I bought are quite big, and I don't want them stitched onto the crossword grid section. I've picked up stitches around the top of the bag, and am knitting a black border to accommodate the handles.
