Anyway, I finally caught up with my to do list, kittens were asleep so I have finished it, catching up with a few hours of recorded TV at the same time.
I just wanted a small cabled bag (I love cables) and I spotted this pattern when I googled "cabled bags". I downloaded the pattern for "Albem" for free from berocco.com. Although I have followed the pattern I used a different wool and smaller needle size so effectively I have the same bag but scaled down.
I only had one 100g ball of Stylecraft Life Chunky in cranberry, and it was almost enough - the risk of not following the pattern means you may not have enough wool to complete the project. I did have to skip the edging that was part of the pattern but I am OK with that, I am happy with the finished bag. I can always edge it later if I feel like it!
This wool is gorgeous, 25% wool and it knits cables beautifully. I think this is a great little bag for Autumn.
