Drawstring Bag

Pattern: Drawstring Bags from The Knitter's Bible
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in Coffee Brown
This was another project determined by the random number generator. I really didn't want to knit it. Just not in the mojo, but my desire to use up my stash and have less yarn in my yarn box won out and so I made a little bag.
I wanted the flowers on the bag to be random, so I looked up the binary representation of the ASCII characters for "bag" and "BAG" and used them to determine the 0's and 1's, or blank diamonds and rose-containing diamonds. This is now going to be a reusable gift-wrapping bag for holidays and birthdays.
