Yoga mat bag for ME

Pattern from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation
Lion Brand Cotton in black
Completed January 2006

This wasn't supposed to be for me! Originally I had bought the yarn and formulated the plan when I was looking for farewell and thank-you gifts for the members of my intern committee. My friend Angela does yoga pretty seriously and I thought something handmade would be a good present. Long story short, I didn't have time to follow through and ended up buying gifts for them.

So, months later, I decided to make it for myself. Easy lace pattern, minimal referring the pattern required. Accidentally made it a little large, so it stretches a bit when it's slung over my back by the strap, but still works just great. And, get this, I used half the amount of yarn the pattern called for! So, someone else is probably going to be getting one of these in the future...

I think that's the last of my backlog of projects (I have completed more throughout my life but don't have photos of them all). So it's likely that Needlin' will be updated much more sporadically in the future. Just so you know!
