I confess! I’m a day too late. No excuse!
Yesterday it was Work in progress Wednesday. As you know, my sophie’s universe blanket is finished. So, that means that I have to come up with something else to show you every wednesday.
What am I working on at the moment ?
Well, a while ago I bought a pattern for the Calida cabled bag from Victoria Gogolak. This is one of the designs that won the design wars chalenge.
At first I wasn’t sure which yarn I wanted to use to make this project. It had to be chunky, because I wanted a big bag. But I also like my yarn to be 100% natural fibres. It doesn’t has to be ecological (though that would be an extra plus), but it does have to be cotton, wool, bamboo, …
For a project like this I prefer cotton. I had to look around a bit to find a chunky cotton, that was strong enough to be used as a bag, but still lightweight enough. (I didn’t want a bag that weight more than the things I want to put in it.)
And I found! And you won’t believe me, but the perfect yarn for my project is from a brand called “Wendy”. Haha! How funny is that.
I used :
- 3,5 skeins Wendy supreme luxury cotton chunky in cobalt blue
- a tiny bit more than 2 skeins in soft grey.
