A Proud Moment in my Knitting Career
I'm knitting the Brea Bag from Berocco.com. It's knit in two pieces, front and back, plus a gusset. The front and back are identical pieces, and I just finished both. (Well...I knit the front a few days ago, and cast on the back last night and finished it today)

I spread them out to take a look and then placed them back to back and.....guess what happened???

Wait for it.....waaiiittttt for it.....



.....






.....





.....

THEY'RE EXACTLY THE SAME SIZE!!!! THEY TOTALLY MATCH!
wooohoooo!!!!!


That's never happened before! Hahahaahah

I'm very proud of myself for apparently keeping a consistent gauge over two separate pieces of fabric. Huzzah!

Hee hee, I know this is silly but it's a big moment for me!
Enjoy the pics.

I'm making one of those too... but mine is orange. Yours looks wonderful - way to go. You should give yourself a big pat on the back, but i'm sure you already have...

Maybe you should buy some more yarn as a reward for yourself

Thanks everybody! This was a really easy and quick knit...of course I still have to seam. And I think I'll definitely have to line the bag. The pattern recommends Ultra Alpaca--but my LYS doesn't really stock Berocco so I'm using Plymouth Yarns Suri Merino in color 1654. It's a very deep blue-green in real life. And soooo soft. :-)

I kinda wish I made a garment of some sort next to my skin instead....eheheh
