Project #2 of my Six Books Project 2011.
Cable Top Socks from Cat Bordhi's Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles. (shhh, don't tell anyone, but I did these on one great long circular - magic loop style)
Ravelled here:

Getting my kit together

IMG_1469, originally uploaded by Paisley Womble.

I've signed up to do a 5 week pattern making course at the CAE in May. The course notes detailed the "you will need to bring" stuff and so I had a good excuse to make a little purse in which to put my kit.
This is another pattern - Gathered Clutch - by Anna at Noodlehead.
Fabric from the cotton stash (that damn stash is never-ending!)
Zipper from some old jeans.

New bag from old denim

IMG_1425, originally uploaded by Paisley Womble.

Denim from old jeans: I can't send worn out jeans to the op shop. That's wrong. I can't just throw them out. That's wasteful. I see more bags in my future.
Black pinstripe (pockets and shoulder strap) from worn-out linen trousers:
Grey linen (side panels) is new, but left over from a jacket I made this Summer just gone. (Must photograph that jacket some time, not right now, it needs ironing)
The bag is made using Noodlehead's wonderful 241 Tote pattern. The instructions are clear and the bag comes together beautifully with no awkward fiddly-ness.
