FINALLY I have some new photos to share with you of Mom's Brea Bag.
I was having a hard time deciding how to sew this project together. Is sew the right word? Piece together is a more accurate description. First off, blocking was simple - the pieces didn't need to be stretched out much, rather the cables needed straightening, and the edges needed to be symmetrical. I carefully measured, pinned, measured and re-pinned. In the end, it's 3" wider than the pattern says their version is, and 1/2" taller from bottom to purse opening. The gusset is exactly 2 1/2" wide and a total of 30" long.
I've finished all my swap knitting so no WIPs to share there.
I frogged and restarted J's gloves. I've modified the decreases to something I like a bit better. I also chose to cast-on 4 more stitches than I originally did, and I won't decrease as far as I did the first time. About half of the first glove is finished. Now that Mom's bag is finished, that will be my focus.
What's on your needles this week?
