A Few More FOs

Here is another project rescued from knitting purgatory (my attic). I knit this bag about five years ago. I didn't know how to seam the seams properly and I couldn't find handles for it. So it sat in a lonely shopping bag for five long years. When I ordered handles from Lacis for my felted tote, I got an extra set for this bag. It's from Vogue Knitting on the Go: Bags and Backpacks. The yarn is Lion Brand Woolease Thick and Quick held double so it took about ten minutes to knit and five years to finish! It is kind of cute though.

The next FO is pretty tiny. It's my afghan square (one of them at least) from the Debbie Abrahams class. These are my first cables. The yarn is Rowan All Seasons Cotton which is just wonderful. It feels incredible and it's great to knit with. I definitely want to make some kind of garment for myself from it. I need to find the right pattern.

I'm back to work on Elle. Still only 8 rows into the pattern. I feel like I'm getting the hang of it. I just keep muttering, "three, one, three, one, three, one..."
