Sipalu Bag

Whew! I'm almost done with the Sipalu Bag. Seems there is no end to the provisional cast ons (3 times!) and picking up stitches by the hundreds. Still, it's 90% done and I couldn't be happier.

There was a small 'snafu' in that I was using a US #2 32" needle which was fine for the bottom part of the bag, but too long for the top. And since I didn't know where my 16" needle was, I had to wait for Knit Picks to mail me a new needle (along with the rest of the stuff I ordered!).

All I have to do now is the straps. Then I can block it, then line it and find a button. Then it can be wrapped as a holiday gift and I can get started on my next holiday gift.

Hmmm ... wonder what that will be.


  1. Looks great. Love the colors. Now get some sleep :)

  2. Beautiful. Simply beautiful!
