Hello there! :)i'm spending next tuesday in manchester due to work, but i'm hoping i can find a couple of free hours to visit the city and maybe buy some yarn... Is there any place and/or label i shouldn't miss? thanks
You should visit Merceria Santa Ana in Portal de l'Angel street, its a huge old shop with all kind of stuff for crafts!! Also, if you have a walk in Call street, you'll find lots of small shops with beads and such stuff. For second hand stores, just have a walk around the center of the city (esp. the Raval and the Born areas), there are thousands!
No, i didn't modify the pattern, i just sewed it differently, so both handles would be toguether (sorry my english sucks). I'm a slooooow knitter so it took me a couple of weekends... not sure how many hours... but it's an easy project, and you can finish it whenever you want, by making the bag bigger or smaller
