The Bag Lady Returns

I just finished the new Dorothy Bag from Black Sheep Bags. I knit it in fall colors and like the way it turned out. I did the attached I-cord a little too tight, so the top pulls in a little more than I would like. I thought this bag had a flap, it took me a while to realize that the bag is just folded over ... duh!. I am a little slow at 2 AM, that is when I was finishing it. It still needs a button, then it is officially done. Cascade 220 sure does reek when it is felting. My husband says it smells like perm solution, but I think it is worse than that.

I am working on the I-cord for the July "Oh Bag Me" group, and then I will have another bag finished. I am glad my 8 year old wants that bag, I don't know what I would do with it otherwise.

I am working on the Pinwheel sweater too. I have quite a bit more done than what is in the picture. I am on the fifth color and I really like this sweater. I can't wait to get t finished, but it is a little too warm to knit on it right now. It is like knitting under an blanket.
Well, that is about all for today. Happy knitting all!

The bag looks so cool! That peach isn't so bad afterall. And I love the pinwheel jacket. I want to make one too.

I love the choice of colors for your pinwheel sweater. I'm planning on making one also but can't decide on the colors I want. Can't wait to see yours done.
