Pics or it didn't happen:)

Just a mite short but a good first try. I used one skein of cascade
two twenty. Next time I will use more and add an inch to the height.
Now I need the perfect button. On with the search.

Less than productive

I began the day with the best of intentions but decided midway to
detour to California Pazza for lunch with MIke , then on to Target to
pick up a couple of things-love those four packs of chapstick, which
gives me an extra one to lose or melt in the dryer (oh and I did get a
haircut!), then home to read my email and blogs and generally waste
time balancing my budget and all( I have exactly 19 dollars to last
for two weeks if I am a good girl and pay all my bills on time)(which
means no more big boxes of yarn:O). But thanks fully I did find these
very wonderful Liberty of London flip flops from Tarjay! Can you
believe it? What a score!

Knitting break

I am not a speed knitter and I have to take a break once in a while to
give my hands and shoulders a break. Here is ipad case so far...hope
to finish it tonight.

behold the bag....

Finished in one week! I am very happy with the way this turned out and I am already thinking about the next one....
***No pattern I just cast on and crossed my fingers for a good result. I used two hanks and a hundred stitches (easy to remember) of cascade 220 -doubled-Judy Becker cast on so there is no seam. It is simple grocery bag construction. I knitted magic loop style till it got too big then then two circs then back to one plain ole in the round, once it got big enough.
On the lower third I added a stripe with fancy yarn called Ozark Opulent that I bought at Purl Soho-created by David Gentzsch--beautiful. made the whole bag imho. And for the top I did an applied I cord, ala Elizabeth Zimmerman-in red.
Hershey I am working in Smithhaven mall apple store-close to you? I do not have your email --please send- we could have lunch if you are in the area. Did you finish that stunning DJ???
