Finished Object: The Christine Bag!
This was my first choice as my first cabled project. But after trying it a few times in two different yarns, I realized that at the time, I didn't know how to count. So I gave up. Now, apparently I DO know how to count, 'cause here she is!
This is a birthday gift for a friend, who requested a bag for a birthday gift. I chose the color (amethyst) 'cause I know she's a purple-lover just like me. The original pattern has the bag with a big, floppy bow. My friend is NOT a floppy bow-kind of gal. So there's no bow, and that is that!
Eventually, I am going to make one of these for myself. In fuchsia. And yes, I already have the yarn in the house. And I may or may not be a floppy bow-kind of gal, we'll just have to see.
