ella rae bags

Rita knit up this lovely little felted bag (in about a minute) from the Ella Rae Bag book eight.

I loved it so much I immediately purchased enough Cascade 200 to make a pink bag AND a teal bag! It's such a quick and easy pattern, I knew it wouldn't take me long...then reality set in and I knew if I didn't get to work on the rest of the triangle shawl it would never be done in time for the October class...plus there was the need to reread all six Harry Potter in preparation for midnight on July 21st - when we finally find out HOW IT IS ALL GOING TO END!!!!

Plus the birdwatching thing...we saw a bald eagle, a great blue heron, about a billion red winged blackbirds and a yellow warbler. However, I also found a tick crawling on me in the middle of the night which freaked me out enough to seriously consider limiting my future birdwatching to whatever I can see from the relative safety of the very comfy chair next to my front room window...

Regardless, the ella rae bag in waiting patiently in the "on the needles" hide-away for a less busy time. But you can at least enjoy this picture of Rita's nice work!

Yours in knitting,
Claire

Hey There!
Good to see my Mom is keeping busy and out of trouble! I'll be in Erie on August 11th and hope to stop into the shop. Give Rita a hug for me if you see her.
