But I LOVE the lining
The second bag I made was the Curvy Clutch. This was a great pattern, really easy to follow and I quickly made this clutch with some Katie Jump Rope fabric I've had for ages but could never decide what to use it for. I lined it with some cute birdie fabric that I had also stashed away. Result! my pattern buying guilt was absolved by using two stash fabrics - yay!
I also enjoy knitting but I never, ever knit in the Summer. I think it is a habit from growing up in Australia where it is far too hot to be working with wool in the Summer. There is no reason why shouldn't knit in London summers as they are never too hot but somehow I just can't get over my old habits. It is starting to feel cooler here now, Autum is on it's way and I've been looking around for knitting patterns. I was so excited to find this class at Loop my favourite knitting shop in London. I love making wristlets and armwarmers so I am really looking forward to this class. My two little kittens have taken up residence on top of my knitting bag. Hopefully they will be too big to fit there by the time October comes around and I will have my knitting materials back to myself.
