Okay, I've been working on this bag (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTfrenchmarket.html) for several weeks now... I'm so sick of it! So I figured I'd show my progress, in case I shelf it... [/url]

Looking good! I love that pattern!

It looks beautiful, maybe you just need a small break from it. I hope you finish it. Good luck!

It's looking great!

Well, it is just lovely. I'm sure you will be thrilled to have it when it is finished. The colors are awesome, very earthy.

It looks great. What yarn is that? I love the colors!

That's looking great! :thumbsup:

Well, your colors are quite lovely, but I understand that the finished, un-felted product is the size of a small canoe. So, I can understand why you feel the way you do! Good luck finishing it! Perhaps a small, easy-to-finish project about now will give you the break you need. ;-)

I also have the French Market bag on the needles. I started around Easter and then lost interest. I knit a round last week for the first time since last spring. I only did it because I was procrasting with my closet cleaning.

Find a small project to do in between. It will re-invigorate you. I used to be a strictly monogamous knitter. But now I always keep a spare project OTN!

wise advice indeed: starting a small project until the bag is interesting again. i tried that a week ago, and it was going well until my german shepherd ate it! (the needles included!) so i'll just take my time with it. i mean, it probably needs about 2 solid hours, and that's it! but, still...

amber -- i'm using all of my leftover wool -- a bit of manos and peace fleece.

i WILL post this baby when it's finished.

It looks great! I have it on the needles too and it is very slow going. My color is almost identical to your taupe color. Great choice!

My plan is to rent a really long movie, and hopefully get a lot accomplished.
