Sophie Times Two

Here are two Sophie Bags that were completed before Christmas and given as gifts. Unfortunately, the other three were given away before any pictures could be taken. Take my word for it, they were breath taking. *she giggles* Actually, they were exactly like these two, but in different colors.

Pattern: Sophie by Julie Anderson for Black Sheep Bags on Magknits
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of The Andes in Amethyst Heather and Daffodil
Needles: US 101/2 Bamboo Circ
Started: Can't remember
Finished: December 21, 2006
Notes: The Heather color did not felt as well as the regular wool (note the size difference). But both are nice to work with and these knit up quick. I bought sparkling vintage pins for the front of each purse. Searching for just the right pin was the fun part. It's tough to match a purse color and loud tacky pin to each recipient’s personality.

I loved this post from The Daily Purl and wanted to share it with you. Always feeling that the journey and the attempts were as much fun as the end product (flaws and all) but never able to put it into words, I found that she voiced this feeling beautifully. Kudos to The Daily Purl.
