Last Summer Splash

I just finished the knitting on this bag. The pattern is called "Last Summer Splash" and is designed by Ana Maria Delk. She submitted this as a free pattern on the Bag-A-Holic Yahoo Group (now non-active) back in August 2007. I found mention of this bag on Ana's Ravelry page but not the pattern. It is a very easy knit and I love the colors and the way it looks.

I still need to make a frame for this bag. This was started when I was very new to knitting and wasn't quite aware that very loose knitting would make for a very floppy bag - one with no structure whatsoever. I will get to that sometime in the near future. I am sure it will be an adventure as I have not done this before :o)
The start of 40 inches of I-cord for the drawstring
Hexagon #13
Hexagon #14 for the Whirlygig
It's nice to be bringing out some of my projects that have lain dormant for so long. It's also very nice to be knitting just to be knitting, not to be knitting for gifts and on a deadline. VERY relaxing!!

Yes, it is very nice to be knitting for knitting sake and not the rush of finishing gifts in time for Christmas! Enjoy finishing your beautiful projects :)
