Monday, July 3, 2006Twitterpated was going to be for her. I'm very proud of this bag because even though I knit...I DO NOT SEW. No really, not even button repairs. It's that bad. So imagine a person who doesn't even know how to repair a rimmed seam, lining a bag for the first time. It was NOT PRETTY people. It took me about 2 hours. Yes, 2. Like I said, it's bad. But she came out beautifully. I made a few modifications to this bag too. I couldn't find handles that I liked anywhere so I just decided to knit some up and add a few D rings. I think it turned out great. I also scored the lining for only $1.20 a yard at Joann's in the bulk bargain bin...ROCKET...it was EXACTLY what I wanted...something feminine but also with a vintage look and the red in the flower matched the bag perfectly!
Twitterpated was made with about 2.5 skeins of Cascade Cotton Rich on size 7 and 10 Clover Bamboo needles. I absolutely love this yarn!

Now The Mr. laughed hysterically at this picture...he thought it was SOOOO funny that I still took a picture knowing that the flash would show up...BUT BUT BUT, I wanted you to 1. see that I am NOT the perfect Mrs. Clean because of the nasty state of my bathroom mirror and 2. see how cute the bag looked when slung over a shoulder. :)
Le bag...with the camera wristlet also making a nice appearance in the picture as well..clearly I'm a knitter and not a photographer.
Well, I'm off to curl up with some Cinnamon Apple Spice Herbal Tea and watch some Bill Engvall on Comedy Central. I hope everyone has a great 4th of July. Remember to say a Prayer for our brave heroes that are defending our country and are giving us this freedom to celebrate!
