TLC Cotton Ease in Kiwi on 16" sz 6 circular needles
Love it...looks great on. Next time I will repeat a lace section one more time and decrease the bust stockinette stitch by an 1" cuz I wish the lace start right under my boobage...lol. Also, it took much less yarn than what the pattern called for. I had close to two skeins left which was just enough to make...
I also used my 16" sz 6 circular needles for this and made the larger version. I LOVED this project until I hit the handles. Then the swearing began. I made the handles at 4" as the pattern called for but the holes were so small that I couldn't fit my hands through. So, I had to rip out those nice new seams, increase each handle by 2" and reseamed it. Part of me wishes they were still longer but I'm hoping that once I have goodies in the purse, the weight will stretch the handles. I finished with just barely enough yarn. I will be lining the bag but I need to hit up the fabric store for the lining. I'm planning on making myself a skirt to go with everything so I can wear my ensemble to work and using that same fabric for lining.
BTW, did I mention I live in Michigan? This outfit will be really cute in May...lol
