WIP: Slytherin Bag

Rosemary has done it again! Her latest pattern is fabulous. She’s wrote out charts for all four houses (pattern available here), and I volunteered to test-knit the Slytherin one for her. Those of you I saw at the Boston Ravelry meet-up on Monday will have seen me working on it. Here is where it is now, since I haven't had a chance to line it or add the lining. My only adaption is that I think I will go back and make the handle a little wider.

I felt very clever for my blocking method, but Kara's method is great too. During blocking, I discovered you really need something along the sides. (Note my favorite blocking spot, my yoga mat. You will see more of it soon.)

This was my first fair-isle project in the round, so I was a little nervous about tension. As a result I knit this inside out, which worked really well for me. So yes, I am not done yet, but great idea, great chart, great pattern.

Beautiful work Omly - and a wonderful little bag :) I've just downloaded the pattern and will be keeping an eye out for suitable yarn.
