She wants one just like it.....


But in a different color. My oldest daughter loves the shape of my latest bag and the size is just perfect, but....." what is with the old lady colors, Mom?" I hear that a lot from her, but she is 15, so anyone over 25 is ancient, and apparently, I only pick out "old lady" colors. I guess I will have to make her one in a different color and she wants a flap. Christmas is right around the corner, maybe she will get one then.

Like I said in the previous post, the yarn is Farmhouse Yarns, Roxanne's Mohair, and the color is Black Cherry. I am not sure why it is Black Cherry, it reminds me more of the changing leave we are seeing right now, here in Indiana. Since I am going to be hanging this up in the LYS, I need to type up the pattern.

We got our cold front. I am so happy, I love cool, brisk, fall days. I can wear my handknit socks in this weather.

Well I need to scoot, I have a knitting lesson to give.

Ok, tell Kaitlin those are not "old lady" colors. Her mom and aunt aren't old ladies and we like those colors. It's beautiful as is everything you make. Hope to see you soon!!

Gosh, I'm 39 but a young 39, alas I must be getting old because I don't think that looks like an old lady colour at all! I love it! I suppose if I was 15, I would think the same thing though.
Yet again, you've turnout out another gorgeous bag!

I love the bag and the color! (Of course, I suppose I qualify for an old lady at 45...) My 17 year old daughter makes similiar comments... but she is my favorite one to knit for (I just let her pick out the colors as well...)
I finished my first ball band bag and I love it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Old lady colors? Hahahaha. Gotta love our kids huh?

I said something to my daughter the other day and she said, "I thought that was just an old wive's tale?" to which I replied, "Well honey I'm an old wife."
