Yarn Along: One Done
I am continuing to listen to Mornings On Horseback by David McCullough on audiobook whenever I have the chance. In book form, I have set aside anything more substantial for a walk in a garden. I just borrowed An Amish Garden from the library. It is essentially an Amish woman's diary of her garden through the year with plenty of eye-candy photos to boot. It is lovely to look through.
And someday, I intend to publish a book just like this. Minus the Amish part. ;-)
The knitted cable purse is done! I originally planned to buy handles to make it more purse-like but couldn't find anything that suited me. I opted to, instead, save my money and make my own strap and turn it more into a messenger bag.
I lined the purse with fabric that I already had on hand but it went so well, I thought a ruffle at the top would give a nice textural distinction and show off the fabric a bit.
I made pillowcases for my mother-in-law from this fabric for Christmas a few years ago so now I guess this purse matches her bed! ;-)
I haven't decided yet whether I ought to keep this for myself or give it away. It is an awfully sunshine-y purse and I know lots of people who could use some sunshine in their lives.
Now that the purse is done, Corynn's crocheted Easter dress can be given full priority. Only a few more weeks, after all.
