By coincidence I just happen to have spent an hour in my workroom (spare bedroom) cutting up an old cardigan which had become feelted and really thick. I liked the fine pattern (machine knitted of course) and did not want to bin it. As I had just started knitting a bolero, and as I always have a job to keep all the bits and pieces together, I had decided to make a bag to hold everything - wool, needles and pattern, etc. So now I have an idea of what I could perhaps hopefully aspire to, and I will take a lot more trouble with it.
