One Purse Down!

This is either going to Lain as a wedding pacification, or to Meg in order to soften her up for my imminent couch-landing. The other bag is currently under the needle, ETA: Tomorrow.

Here's the liner. It has three pockets, one of them with a zipper!

Ebay Seller: nwa1970

I got this yarn off of ebay for a pretty decent price. Should that be ringing any warning bells? I've found that the colors run horribly, and that when I try setting the colors they tend to get all muddled together.

I've considered contacting the seller to see if they have anything to say about this or tips they can pass on, but even so I'm not a fan of the overwhelming magenta color. I much prefer my rainbow bag.


Over the weekend I sewed liners for the three bags that have been sitting on my non-literal project table, AND read 750 pages of "Breaking Dawn" (which was predictably written, trite, and entirely too nauseatingly obsessed with gender roles and stereotypes - but that is ENTIRELY what I get for being roped into juvenile fiction in the first place...). So in short, I was uncharacteristically unlazy.

Yay me!

Now I have to sew all the separate pieces onto the yarn by hand. NOT my favorite part... and get this done in the next two weeks before my friend gets married and I take off to visit my other friend in Brazil. I really shouldn't have taken that nap this afternoon, huh?
Pictures will be forthcoming.
