A knitting friend of mine took me today to a yarn shop in Saratoga, NY called "Saratoga Needle Arts". Wow!!
IT's the best one I've been in yet. I saw SO many beautiful yarns and many hand dyed. They even had some that were already beaded!! I had no idea you could buy pre beaded yarns.
I saw a knitted bag that I fell in LOVE
with. I kept circuling around it and then back to it and then back to it again and then I just knew I HAD to knit one. The bag is called "Himalaya Tote. Its from www.JustOneMoreRow.com
. As I said the yarn in the picture online is NOT the one I got. That yarn is a bit ....shabby looking. The one they knitted in the store is nicer in my opinion and thats the yarn I choose.
I bought the pattern all the yarn and the handles. The yarn I chose is a Noro Kujaku. It has flecks of of color in it and of course the yarn itself is multi colored. I also bought the light wooden colored handles to go with it. I spent a lot more than I intended to but I'm so glad I got it all. :D
Now I HAVE to finish up two other knitting projects then I will begin this one. :XX: :XX:
