Posh

Well I've looked in the dictionary and the definition of 'Posh' is 'smart, stylish, high class'. So here we go! What could be more posh than this orange bag from Hermes in Lower Regent Street (I think). Husband brings me back all sorts of lovely bags like this, ones that his boss is throwing out. I've yet to have a posh bag with anything in it brought home. But this is going to be my latest knitting bag for, yes you guessed it, Tipsy. I've cast on as you see...


... and am loving everything about it so far. The little bit of lace pattern, which is so easy even I can manage it; the frill round the bottom of the sleeve (am I having a bit of an 80's revival with all these frills lately I wonder?); the colours and of course the ever perfect Posh Yarn - Sophia 4-ply which is 100% pure unadulterated cashmere.


I did wonder if I had enough yarn, but having assembled it all together, I think that possibly I might manage. Good job too as anything posh, be it bags or yarn, does not come cheap. But hey, a little extravagance now and again never did anyone any harm did it?

So follow me please for the journey that will be long and slow. I am a very slow knitter, so do not expect miracles. But perfection has its price does it not?

Oooh, I'm looking forward to living vicariously through you. Even a Mrs Posh can't afford a sweater this posh.....

I always keep my projects in their own bag. That orange bag is a beauty indeed.
