Really have been feeling very angst-ridden about what the next project should be. Tempted by a red coat in the magazine I bought but the yarn I found on sale still came to 45 quid! Is that really how much it should cost? Back to the existing stash! Decided a second knitted bag would be a good project and would use stripes of two stash yarns - a very dark navy merino and insipid light beige mohair. On double-checking yardage they weren't as similar as I'd thought so got some thicker needles and knitted both together and it looks flipping fab! Nothing more than garter stitch required. Check it out! The blue looks black and the beige white. And somewhere I have grey too! Feels soft! Much much happier!!!
