I finished knitting the French Market Bag last evening, and had plenty of yarn left over - I probably could have knitted the body of the bag another few rows deeper, but there we are - I couldn't bear to think about having to rip the handles out because I didn't have enough wool left.
I couldn't wait to put it into the washing machine and see what happens.
Here it is drying in the sunshine, after two washes at 6o degrees. The Manos del Uruguay yarn shrinks far more than the Noro Kureyon.
As you can see, it's a glorious Spring day in the Cotswolds!
