Yarn Along - FO's and a CO!

I have finished a few things this week.
The bag I finished last week and wrote up the pattern here.

I also finished the shawl and it is blocking!

I have Vianne, Rhombing Around and a pair of socks OTN but I decided I needed another project, so I CO Nine Twenty Two!!  The yarn is reclaimed from a cardigan I knit a year ago but had lost its shape and that I never wore.  The colour is lighter than the pic - it is called gingerbread and that is an accurate representation of its colour!
Also finished 'Me Before You', so I decided some nice light reading was in order!!  Have started 'Starting Now' - holiday read about knitting.
Joining Nicole and Ginny

  2. The purse is super cute. I have one on my "to make" list that is a mile long, but didn't have a pattern picked out. I'm going to go check out your link right now. Thanks for sharing

  3. That bag is really impressive, especially since you made,the pattern yourself.

  4. Oh that bag is beautiful! I love the cables, and the shawl is going to be incredible once it's blocked - blocking really is like magic on shawls isn't it - you'd never believe something so scrumpled could smooth out into floaty lace!

  9. That purse is so pretty. I am glad I am not the only one who reclaims yarn from projects that I don't use. I love Debbie Macomber books.
