In my efforts to clear out, I am working on orphan projects so they do not whine at me any longer from the basket.

I started to knit a cotton shopping bag last December at Unevent. When combined with serious rotator cuff pain while I was trying to concentrate on stitch count accuracy that weekend, and not understanding how to make this increase, it ended up being full of fail. It ended up being, as I've posted, an "orphan project".

It is a pattern from "Oat Couture, natural knitting", "Stow-Away Shopping Bag" (AC306)

Unfortunately it meant pulling apart the entire work done and starting over, it was that full of fail. Thank goodness cotton yarn is VERY forgiving. I balled up the yarn, put on my big knitter panties and got to work. Ah but I was now at the point to make the first increase. This was a major problem the first time. So I went to the great knitting oracle and found a nice tutorial.

Whoo hoo! After seeing the following You Tube video I finally "get" how to Make 3! This is an important increase stitch for my shopping bag. All will now be right in world!
