While I was in Chicago I found this great little yarn store called "we'll keep you in stitches" at 67 E. Oakes. Betty is the owner of the store and she has been selling yarn for the past 30+ years. She's great. At first she just let me wander. Then she pulled somethings out to tempt me. When I saw this Coventry yarn by Trendsetter. It is delicious. It's pretty and it feels great. So I had to find a pattern. Hmmmmmm. How bout something different? Maybe a purse? Ok, ok, purses are a weakness for me. But in my defense, they are easy, quick and they always fit.
Here's the front pieces. I am now knitting the back and then there is the finishing. Argh, not my favorite thing. But hopefully it will be quick and easy to finish, or you will hear the whining.
I found the pattern in Berroco Bags #251. It's supposed to look somewhat like the picture below. Except the yarn is different, making the bag a bit larger than the one below. But hopefully it will all work out and look very cute when it's done. We'll see. Or I will just have to rip it all out and try something different. I really liked this yarn and think that I bought twice as much as I'll need, so I'll be looking to make some other fab accessory.
