a few "new" firsts for me....

ok... first of all melanie has been trying for i don't know how long to get me to do new things... like knit in the round, yo's, and too many other things.... well she finally got me hooked... i have been watching her knit 90 goin' north on these everlasting bagstoppers and i have fallen in LOVE with them.... it started out that i would do the bottom and she pick up stitches and get me going on in the round stuff ..... but.... i did it!!!... she showed me how to pick up the stitches and i got the hang of that right off... i did manage to get a few extra stitches on the bag though.... fixed that problem ....i even joined in the new yarn and started in the round... i am still getting the hang of the in the round business.... but this bag is ... as melanie puts it... mindless once you get goin'... the colors are... the bottom (and handle when i get there) is sugar n cream pistachio and the body of this bag is sugar n cream landscape... once i get more of the body finished i will post it with the bag upright so you can get a better looksie.... have a great day!!! laters :Þ
