LITTLE RED BAG



I finally finished the red "Romantic Ruffles Felted Handbag" . . . YAHOO . . . it wasn't difficult . . . it was a little weird though. . . first you knit the middle . . . then you pick up stitches at the top and knit the ruffle . . . then you pickup stitches and do the bottom . . . weird!!! . . . the only reason I can figure out that it took so long (started July 10-finished September 3) is that I kept on letting myself get distracted by doing other fun things . . . lesson learned here . . . time to stop knitting purses for awhile and do some other fun stuff . . . like a sweater for myself, a seatbelt cozy or maybe I will even try knitting a pair of socks (gasp and give of my title of "sock virgin" - I don't think so) . . . or better yet for right now I think I will just put the knitting aside, put my feet up . . . grab a good book (Roni I am almost through with the "Yarn Harlot" you loaned me) . . . and try that chocolate tea again with some chocolate this time! . . . so ladybug kisses and TTFN . . .
