Next assignment

I need to design a little lace soap sack for a workshop that may or may not take place in November.

Design considerations:
I'll use sport weight cotton
Will have to be quite simple, because class members may not know any more than how to cast on, knit and purl, and the workshop will only be 3 hours long.
- knit flat and seam
- short row repeat for pattern stitch
- patterning on Right Side rows only

Want to incorporate right leaning, left leaning and double decreases for teaching purposes.

So it's off to figure out how big a soap sack should be, haul out good old Barbara Walker and start swatching.

Baxter surveys the back yard, unconcerned by design considerations of any kind
