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!
