After starting over because I was getting a different guage when I started a new skein, I finally finished the crocheted bag. I made this pattern up as I crocheted and it went pretty well. If I make it again I will make some minor adjustments. It would also be cool to make one and felt it.
I also finished the scarf that I was knitting. On Sunday, Dan and I took advantage of a beautiful autumn day and went hiking at a local state park after having lunch in Oxford, a university town north of Cincinnati. I worked on the scarf in the car on the way up and cast off as Dan was parking. Just your average 2x2 ribbed scarf using left over skeins of the Phil'laine and Oxygene from Le Pull Col Tunisien.
I was happy to start and finish these two projects in about two weeks. A gal, er, guy, needs some instant gratification sometimes, you know? Now it's off to finally finish seaming Monsieur Fancy Pants...
A side note: I am thinking of restarting the skull vest in a different yarn. Do any of you have any suggestions for a nice wool or wool blend in a 5-6 per inch gauge?
