I finally finished the bag I was knitting for a friend. it took alot of sweat and tears and frogging to get the buttonhole handle bit right … and then I had the 2nd handle to do

It’s from 25 bags to knit by Emma King. I added some gorgeous yellow golden with a hint of red lining that I found and I had some great appreciation my dudelet who said “wow a treasure bag, it’s beautiful – can you knit me one exactly like that … except in blue”. Ah I treasure these days.

I can see why finishing a project is hard, it took alot longer than I thought and as it’s my first bag a couple of goes at lining to get the measurements right!
