Ultimate Recycling

Newest in our line of Miss Marple chic accessories is...

The Sampler Bag

Displayed here on a filing cabinet, this entirely unstructured bag is recycled from a pillowcase knitted from Lion Kitchen Cotton (circa 2000)

as an experiment in the newly-learned techniques of cabling and entrelac.

Cable mis-crossings add to the wonky charm of this never-to-be-duplicated piece,

as does the irregular whipstitching that holds the lining--recycled from a t-shirt--in place.

Please do not place orders, as the knitter has since learned from (most of ) the errors in her experiment, and has additionally vowed not to go near a sewing needle for a very, very long time to come.
