I Love Lucy

Lots of knitting and crocheting going on. I have finished 3 more Lucy Bags--only 2 are shown as one is a gift that I will post pics of after Christmas. Pattern can be purchased here or at your LYS. The Red one is mine--I have been lining them. The brown one is not yet lined as it is still wet, but I will post a pic when it is. I have now made 5 of them--4 are gifts. The pink and white crocheted grocery bag pattern can be obtained here. The Red lucy bag is made from Cascade 220 paints. The brown Lucy bag is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes--color amber heather--I love the way this felted. The crocheted pink and white mesh bag is made from Lily Sugar'nCream Color Strawberry--it is for my 6 year old grandaughter for Christmas. I had made her Mom one of these bags and she confiscated it for her stuffed animals and didn't want to give it up. Since my daughter uses it to take her lunch to work she lets Alli use it once a week. Therefore I made one for Alli.

I hope everyone is doing well out there in blogland and hope to get back to posting more regularly. I have been going to my LYS in Chardon, Oh. with my Mom to knit and she is really enjoying it--and I am too. Well Happy Knitting to all.

I think you were right to line the bags, it gives them a nice finished look to them. And good for you for making something for yourself!!! (I get so bogged down with making stuff for other people)

Thanks for the link to the pattern. I LOVE YOUR MEEZ. My daughter is becoming a nurse and works in an ER now. She is a little sad with all the geriatrics and their sadness, and all the psych she sees. But she works with a great staff and is learning a ton.
