View Full Version : FO: IRISH TWEED "QUINN BAG"

07-13-2009, 05:52 PM
Made another QUINN BAG to complement my Cassidy Cable Cardigan.
Had yarn left over (points for the Stash Train!) so why not?!

YARN: Irish Donegal Tweed, Citron Yellow #4897
PATTERN: QUINN BAG (http://www.cogknition.org/patterns/quinn/) (free)
YARDAGE: 329 yds
MODIFICATION: using double strands and a US9, I made a 6st wide cabled handle instead of braided I-cords. Additional details and how-to's on my Ravelry Project page, (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/quinn-cabled-bag-2) if you're interested.



Buttoned with a crochet chain stitch loop:

That's beautiful!

I feel like such a slug next to you. I haven't knit for a few days because it's been so freaking hot and I don't have a/c. It's 95 F right now. :hot:

Oy! The Seattle area had high 80's for a few days...but on Sunday everything went downhill! Rain, wind, thunder, lightening, the works! It is still poo-poo today, but I'm not complaining!

I sat outside all weekend under a tree with my two little granddaughters who were spending the week with me! While they splished and splashed...I knitted in the shade of a tree!
Thankfully, it was windy all weekend! Yay!

Do you knit in your sleep? :teehee:

:knitting:I knit INSTEAD OF sleep! :roflhard:

I have a casual friend that mentioned that she sleeps12 hours per night. :passedout:

As I think about it...I am still :passedout:.

That means that she sleeps 6 months out of the year.
Half her life is in an unconscious state.

I sleep 6 hrs. So I'm sleeping 3 months out of 12.

I wish we didn't need to sleep. But, we're organic and it's part of the package.

I really love looking at your fos! The purse is very nice and I think the cable strap is much better than an i cord would have been.
