Knitted bag & scarf



I'd got this interesting shimmery
4-ply baby yarn in dark blue.
I'd planned to make a cabled purse with it,
but the cables were not showing very well.
found this great pattern for
SMOCKING
on ribbed knitted fabric
.



.
The smocking looked wonderful
 but just doesn't show up in the photos

Here's the finished little hand bag
decorated with
blue beads,
flower sequins and
pearl beads.
The handles are aluminium rounds
covered with the same yarn.
.
I really loved the look and feel
 of this pretty yarn
 so decided to team it up with a scarf.
A simple lace pattern
Dainty Chevron
turned the wool into a
shimmering piece of lace

.

.
The pattern repeat says 8 stitches but I've used 9
Above is the scarf blocking.

Here are the two paired together.
