Meet Lucy





I bought the yarn and the pattern to make the Lucy Bag from my LYS this past winter. Finally Started her in May and finished her July 26. Very boring, simple knit and I love the finished product--plan to line her and use her this winter. I am making another one as we speak, along with a cabled felted purse and a pair of socks which are all on the needles. Made with 3 skeins of Lamb's Pride wool mohair blend by Brown Sheep Company in brown heather. Love the way it felted and would use it again for felting.

Hubby is doing great right now and we are making plans for our fall vacation after having to cancel the summer one. Knitting will be going along and hope to once again visit the Knitting Up A Storm yarn shop in N. Myrtle Beach while we are gone. Happy Knitting to all.

He must be doing wonderfully if you can finally make vacation plans. It's good to have something like that to look forward to.

You brave woman to felt a bag. I haven't worked up to felting.

I love your Lucy! I've always wanted to knit one of those. Maybe it is time to dig around in the stash and try it out. Thanks for dropping by the blog!
