The tease is over!





There isn't much to say that you guys don't already know. It's the Nicky Epstein felted floral bag from the Fall Interweave knits. I used Knitpicks Merino Style in DK & size 7 needles. It took me forever to finish the first side and then I really got the hang of the double fisted fair isle & it was breeze after that.

I love the fabric I found to line it. It really compliments the fair isle. I also chose to use leather handles instead of the i-cord for a more finished look.

All in all I am extremely pleased that I finished it & that it looks good. This was a BIG knit for me in terms of skill. I have done fair isle before but not of this size. I feel like this is a real knitting accomplishment.

Now Isaac & I are off for a quick brunch before heading to centennial Olympic park for the Southern Comfort Music Experience. Why? You ask. Is it my love of SoCo? No friggin way folks! It's the fact that tonight we will see De La Soul, Big Star & The Flaming Lips for FREE!! Today, I am a SoCo fan!!

Enjoy your sunday!
