Early on I suggested that mom and I make the two hour trip down together as a kind of bonding excursion because I'll likely be visiting the boyfriend for a few weeks the following weekend. She gladly and rather quickly agreed as she is reading Yarn Harlot and is just as enchanted by Stephanie's sense of humor as I.
Hrm. Just because I feel guilty about posting sans pictures - here's a quick project I just completed:
I purchased a rather cute tote from a garage sale (for pennies, yay) and was annoyed to discover the handle only allowed the bag to go as far as my elbow.
Just a few hours later I whipped up two I-Cord handles made with Sugar 'n Cream in Ecru I happened to have lying around. The bag now sits on my shoulder with no problem!
(Thanks to Cola for being such a gorgy hand/arm model!)
