*3/3/08 Updated with Sweater Action Shots Pg2!* Lucy and Mr Greenjeans
Lotsa gray Cascade 200 in the stash to use up!

I looooove my Lucy Bag. The handles are brilliant. Next time I'll probably do the shorter handles so it's a shoulder bag and I will definitely line it with pockets and a stabilizer. I've been using this as my daily bag for over a month.

(crappy cell phone pic alert)





And then Knitty's Mr. Greenjeans. Super easy pattern and a pretty quick knit. It's still drying but I think it's gonna be a good cold sweater for the back of my office chair.

Pattern-wise: I went a size up to accommodate the boobages and as a result there's poofy extra fabric in the back I'd have been better off figuring out some short row shaping, oh well.

I also did much more decreasing on the sleeves cuz they were huuuuge the first go 'round.

(more cell phone pics)

Hmmmm....I'm not terribly sure, because I have such a hard time predicting what will happen during the felting. The pattern does have an option for a shorter strap (I followed the long ones) and I would start by trusting that for my first try since the rest of the pattern was good.
