Once again, the pictures are rotated, and I can't make them stop! One of these days, I'll figure it out and edit these posts. Until then, it's abstract freeform, right?
Today I started attaching the knitting to the purse. A little early, yes, but sometimes being able to see what it's going to look like helps me keep working at a project. For instance, I like to work buttonbands and collar shaping before adding sleeves to a sweater. Not only does it help me judge the correct length for the sleeves, it shows me what the sweater is going to look like in the end. A definite energy boost.
I've done a few spirals and circles for the other side of the bag, too. Still hoping to finish in time to use this purse for the opera gig.
