This bag is for a dear friend of mine, I am naming the bag after her. I wanted to knit her something for this Christmas, but couldn't decide on what to make for a long time. Scarf being the obvious choice, is the first option being ruled out. Ashley doesn't like to wrap things around her neck, so much so that she doesn't even wear turtlenecks. So, scarves are out. Gloves - well, one rarely needs to use gloves in the comparatively mild winters of San Francisco (and I don't know how either... haha...) I thought about socks, but didn't want her to be my first guinea pig as I have never made socks before. Maybe it's time to start my sock adventure.... Anyway. So I decided on a cable clutch bag/purse, seeing that cables are on everything this winter. The cable patterns I picked are rather basic. They are from Barbara G. Walker's A Treasury of Knitting Patterns. The bag itself is very simple, two identical rectangles sewed together. Add a lining, a zipper, some beads, done! Add more beads or sequins and you can use it as an evening bag.

這個小麻花包包是要送給一位好友的, 就以她的名字來命名. 一直在想今年聖誕要織個東西送她, 卻無法決定要織什麼. 這位小姐呢, 不喜歡在脖子上圍東西, 連套頭的衣服都不穿. 所以呢, 不能送圍巾. 舊金山的冬天也很少需要用到手套 (我也不會織, 哈哈...) 其實送襪子應該也不錯, 可惜我也沒織過 (嗯... 可以來研究研究...) 於是便決定做個小包包. 麻花的圖樣是自己看找的, 應該算是蠻基本的麻花. 包包本身很簡單, 織兩片一模一樣的長方型, 縫裡布, 裝拉鍊, 全部縫合, 就好了. 如果想增加點華麗感, 可在麻花交叉的地方再縫上珠珠亮片, 可當宴會包喔! (我的沒有縫太多珠珠, 因為想到收禮人不太用過多珠珠亮片的東西, 所以就"收斂"一點...)


I have never bought yarn that are enclosed in individual cases, looks quite precious...

從沒買過這種每一球毛線還用一個小盒子裝, 看起來好珍貴的樣子 (其實價錢還真是有點貴...)

I've never SEEN yarn enclosed in it's own case... very special.

Thanks for the pattern - you're a genius. x

PS: How's that scarf going? (I feel soooo bad!)
