Upside Down

Something that has bothered me vaguely about the tulip pattern (scroll down to previous post) is that when the knitting is folded to make a bag, part of it will be upside down. I assured myself that that didn't matter, but it nagged at me none the less. This morning I had a brainwave - knit part of it upside down, so that it's the right way up when folded! I confess that I thought the flap would be upside down, but when I folded the tulips realised that it is the back part of the bag that would be reversed. Hmm. I was prepared to undo two rows of flowers to redo the flap, but not four rows. I'll have to start over. Thinks, thinks, I've decided to do the three parts of the bag in the same colour order, rather than the random arrangement of the first one. Now I have  'It'll be just like starting over' singing loudly in my head.

  1. Jane you have tremendous patience with this bag, and it is going to look stunning when finished. I guess it is quite weighty with all those beads

    1. Yes, it is quite heavy. Some of the beads are light plastic which may be just as well.

  2. You have SO much patience, m'amie. Any chance I could borrow some ;-P
    BTW, I love & have always used clutch purses.... until a few years when I needed something larger to hold my reading glasses, etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Starting over usually depresses me. I'm glad you are ready to give it another go.

  4. Never thought about the pattern when I looked at the last post, I can see what you mean but what a shame to unpick it. You have so much patience

    1. I’m not going to unpick it, just knit another one.
