I Finished Knitting the Handbag

Now I need to block it.  Somewhere I have some silk that will make a nice lining.  I also thought I might cut a piece of plastic to put in the bottom.  I haven’t made up my mind about the ties yet. 

I started a pair of cable gloves.  They were in Vogue Knitting winter issue.  The cast-on was weird.  I did a long-tail instead.  I have finished several rows and I’m not yet certain that I like it.  The magazine also has a pair of opera gloves that I would like to make.  They start at the fingertips which I have never tried and i love the design down the arms.

I bought Sock Innovation by Cookie A this morning.  I read various sections and I am impressed.  I’ll be making good use of this book.

    I can’t count how many times I have started something and end up hating the pattern. I have learned to quit early because if I keep going, I am just wasting my time. I never end up liking it in the end.
