As I mentioned on monday my string-a-long bag ended up a lot smaller than I had first of all expected. This is something that a lot of you have noticed, about a lot of different patterns and there seem to be two main ways of dealing with it. One - add a few more rows/stitches and make it the size you want. Two - stick with the size and adjust your expectations.
I chose to go with option two and once I had adjusted my thinking, I sort of fell in love with my dinky string bag and in a spirit of gilding the lily decided to add a brooch made with some of my favourite vintage fabrics.
Now I have the most gorgeous and glamorous string bag ever knitted! I think it may be upgraded to become my library tote or I may take to just wearing it so I can show off!
