Rebel and Breakaway!

From my previous completer/finisher issues! ;)

So a quick update of the weekend.

I made this.

It is a Hobo Bag, pattern from the Stitch and Bitch Desk Calendar. (I lurve that calendar!!) I used 4 balls of the Cleckheaton Vintage Hues (shade 1270) knitting 2 strands together. It took approx an afternoon and evening to make. A great quick knit!


I also lined it so that nothing small would fall out.

I am gifting it to a friend who is going through alot of changes in her life at the moment. New job, new man, new home. Just think, if someone took everything in your life that was stable, comfortable and safe, and then gathered them up and threw them in the air and let them fall higgledy piggledy. Well, that is her life at the moment.

Dont get me wrong, when the universe has done with all this change, her life is going to be tremendous! It is just the implementation of all this change that sucks!!

So for the rest of the day I am back to my sock. But that, gentle readers, is for another post!! :) Have a FABULOUS week!

The bag looks great. Haven't tried the Vintage Hues yet, but I think I may have to!

Love the bag - the lining is fab! You are such a rebel. And you'll never ever be any good!! (except at knitting socks, I know you'll be good at that!!)

Cool bag! You made it in ONE day?! I haven't seen that yarn around yet. Must look harder...

I got to fondle some of that wool yesterday. It's lovely. Makes a GREAT bag. I have a bag I'm thinking of making. that could be the perfect choice.

A good day's work!

The bag looks wonderful - I got my first Vintage Hues wool yesterday, and have nearly finished a scarf already! It's lovely stuff...

Best of luck to your friend, and I hope your weekend was peaceful and centred, and you're ready to tackle the oncoming week!
