Finally a FO!!!

WOOHOOO!!! I'm so excited to actually finish something for the first time in FOREVER!!!
Kelly's purse is finished and delivered! She really seems to like it and that gives me all the warm fuzzies in the world! I really do enjoy knitting for others. I like having it for myself, but the smile and the sparkle in someone's eyes really just makes knitting my "thing".

The bag is adorable. I highly recommend it for a quick gift. MIL is getting one. She loved Kelly's, but wants a black or dark brown. I think I'll do dark brown b/c it'll look great with the bamboo handles!

Needles: Size 13 16' circulars (Addi Turbos of course!!)
Yarn: Dale of Norway Hubro
Others: Silver snaps and handle hinges, 9x9x3 canvas bag for lining, bamboo handles
No changes to pattern!

I have been working and about 90% finished with the wedding garter. The bride is about my size and it's to freakin' big!! I must swatch differently than I knit. It the only want to explain why my swatches are to gauge and most of my knitting isn't. I'm having a HUGE problem with my sock o' the month from February for just that reason. It's driving me CRAZY!!

Speaking of Socks that Rock . . . it's SSSSSLLLLLOOOWWWW going for me. I've been working on it (not everyday, but enough) and I'm still only on the foot of the FIRST sock! I'll be knitting with my 2007 kits well into 2009!!!!
