Ladies, the cable purse is complete...I need a drink...



I finished the cable purse and I like it. If I do another, and most likely will, I will use different handles. These dip the purse down in the middle and make it a little stiffer than I like. But, I do like the end result. It wasn't much to look at when I finished and stretched it out to see what I had, but in the end...it is pretty. Most of the ones I have seen have a ribbon woven thru and then a big bow. Not sure if I want that or not.

Anyway, I have been busy washing fleece this week and that is a chore. Why didn't someone tell me how long that takes!! Man, I am tired and still have one HUGE bag of fleece to go through. So, bring on the drinks! I will have a tea please. Or a Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade from the Sonic...:) that's good drinking.

I bought a bread machine on ebay and received it and have baked a loaf of Honey Whole Wheat, which I am eating right now. Very tasty. However, the seller did not tell the truth in her auction and that was disappointing. But it works, as far as I can tell, so I will let it go.

What's next on the knitting front? I don't have a clue! I have so many projects I want to try and no idea where to start. This morning I was looking for something to knit and became overwhelmed! I had to leave the room and make my snack. Do you ever feel that way? I want to try socks again, but still a little scared. And I found a cool shrug that is inviting, but just not sure. Oh well, I'll finish my bread and think about lunch :)

That is a great looking purse!!!! I would skip the bow. It will detract from the awesome cabling! IMHO, of course! Leigh
