Sophie is a creation of Julie Anderson of Black Sheep Bags, our friends at Magknits showcased her pattern. http://www.magknits.com/warm04/patterns/sophie.htm She is crafted using Lions Wool Ebony and Ocean Blues. The conche is a thrift store find. :D

I love her dearly~

Jan I know you are a kitty lover. You should check out the shot I got of our Midnight going after the bag in a tree. It's hilarious. I had to rush over before she jumped on to it. :lol:

Thank you everyone~
I knew I had a winner as soon as I pulled it out of the wash, well maybe after a few good tugs. lol

I would be remiss not to say here, that if you make this bag, be sure to really give some good twists to that icord handle before you graft. I hurried through and now I wish I had taken more time. Also if you make it with the bottom ten rows in a different color, be aware that when it is weighted, the bottom does show. I'm working on figuring out a way to stabilize it now. You could always make the entire bottom the contrasting color, and not worry about stabilizing at all.

It really is a fun, fast, economical project.
Thank you also for checking out the blog. :heart:

I made mine a solid color that goes up a little bit for that very reason. I still would like it more flat bottomed though. And my handle is not twisted tight enough. Oh well it was an experiment with stash yarn. :lol:

Yes I am so loving the blog. I can yak away to my hearts content, all about knit and life and knit and life. Wonderful.

I am a professional photographer, one of my many hats, and probably the one I love the most, yes even more than knitting. With my lens I am afforded the opportunity to capture the beauty I see, and share it, so that others can as well. There is a few links at the blog to some of my work.

Thank you both for posting at the blog.

More Sophies!More Sophies! :cheering:
