Love the pattern, but probably won't do it again for a while.

This was done in Cascade 220 Quattro, color 5012.  Handle was done in Lamb's Pride Worsted, color M105 (RPM Pink).  I added grommets.  Wanted to line it, but had a hard time finding a fabric I liked.



It's a Mother's Day gift, and I hope she likes it!  She's a sucker for pink.

ETA:  This is my second one.  My first was done for Knitting Olympics.

If these walls came crumblin' down
Fell so hard, to make us lose our faith
From what's left you'd figure it out
Still make lemonade taste like a sunny day

It looks amazing! Well done! And I love the grommets, which add a sharp professional touch.

great job, I'm sure she'll love it.  Smiley  I love the grommets, such a great idea!  I agree with Miss Dottie, it makes it look professional.

Of the Cascade, I used only one skein.  Made it just to specs, and decided I didn't want the quattro for the handle.  Didn't matter much, because the Lamb's Pride was just about what the Cascade turned out to be.

Thanks.  I saw that one other place, and thought it was a good idea.  I used 3/8 inch grommets, and had to buy that tool to cinch them.  My wife had to help with that part!   Undecided
