Victory over the Yoga Mat Bag

March 26, 2006

I am finally (finally!) done knitting the never-ending lace for the yoga bag. It really didn't actually take forever, just 15 days, but I am deeply happy to be done with it. There's something about knitting funtional things that sort of takes the fun out of it. Not that a sweater isn't functional, but at least there isn't a "fast as you can" deadline. The good news is that I love the way it turned out. The diagonal pattern is quite attractive, and I love the color of the yarn. I wrapped my yoga bag in plastic so that it could dry to fit -- here it is blocking:

And here's a closeup of the stitch pattern -- I love the combination of bold and light diagonals:

I still need to make several feet of I-cord for straps, but I'm really looking forward to it as fluff-knitting after all the lace. :-)
