Another FO - Unbelievable!

I am cranking them out like there is no tomorrow people!! Why such the rush? Maybe I am avoiding the lace work on my Redgina, or my very first pattern attempt... maybe... I don't know.

The sewing on this stunk. I am a horrible seamstress. But, the more I practice the better I will get - right Olgita? I even attempted a nice pocket! Mushee (Tony's little sister) is getting this tomorrow, and I will let you all know how its received.

I love the finished product. At first the Raffia was hard to work with, because I am used to nice lovely delish yarn, and nylon is a huge difference.

Not much to write about today. We are going out of town tomorrow to Tony's older sisters graduation, so I am trying to get a lot done before then. Even a haircut scheduled later on, which I am always scared about so wish me luck!

I have been tagged for a meme, my knitannie but I am not in the "full disclosure" kinda mood - so I will leave it for when I have a little more pep.


Pattern Details:

Pattern: Paper Bag by Just Call Me Ruby found on Knitty.com
Yarn: Nylon Raffia in Pearlized Champagne (4 rolls approx.)
Needles: Size 6 from my Denise Interchangeables. (thankfully I am addicted to my Addis now or I would be heartbroken that one of the cables broke!)

I'm a huge fan of that color combo! The bag is so pretty!

You are going out of town?? What will I do if I have a knitting emergency? Will you be available via cell phone? heehe sorry am lightheaded and need to eat my lunch.

I hope your haircut goes well. I used to go religiously every 6 weeks. But I haven't had my haircut since December...and now I'm scared. I have to do that soon!

Another gorgeous finished object- that bag is so darn cute! The name in no way does it justice. The color and the lining work well together and I really like the handles- where did you find them?

Love it! The colors are wonderful, even better than the original (IMO). I'm sure it will be very well received. :)

Hope the haircut goes well.

Great FO! The sewing looks perfect to me (though I admit I don't know squat about sewing). You're becoming quite multitalented.

That's a lovely bag. I love the pink lining.

By the way, I didn't realise you had been tagged for the 7 Random Things and I tagged you again. Oops.

Thrilled to see the photos of my bag on your blog. You can't believe how exciting it was.

It looks beautiful. Love the idea of the pocket. Thank you for blogging about it.
