My Berry Sweet Knitting Needle Bag

I just had to start this cute Knitting Needle Bag pattern
that I saw in my Knitting Daily email the other day.
(you must sign up to get the FREE patterns)
I just fell in love with it… from the cute berry stitch to the wooden
knitting needles used as part of the design.

So, I went marching to my yarn closet to find
some bulky yarn which I knew I must have somewhere. I found this deep red Paton’s Shetland
Chunky Tweed which I have used twice before. Once on my Brea Bag and another time knitting the Strut your Stuff tank for my daughter. However, I only had one skein, so of course I called my sweet hubbie and asked “Can you please bring me home 2 skeins of yarn?” to which he replied…
“oh my gosh, don’t you have enough yarn yet?” HA! never I said…LOL

So, he kindly brought me the 2 more skeins that I needed, so now I can take this project with me to the beach this weekend to work on, as well as my Lady E. I mean I have to take both as they need the attention! Oh, and this is the first time using my Knit Picks Options Harmony needles, which I am absolutely loving! This pattern uses a stitch I had never used before called a “berry” stitch, which is kinda’ cool! Well, you’ll either love it or hate it, and I actually am enjoying it! Overall, this is a no brainer, easy, fun, and a “don’t have to look at the pattern” knit.
So, what are you waiting for …. you know you wanna knit this~!

Now… maybe I can drop by a knitting shop at the beach and find my size 15 wooden knitting needles that I will need for this knitting bag. Here’s hoping!

Here is a link where they show how to knit the berry stitch
(aka- bramble, trinity or blackberry stitch)
