It's all done! I finished the alfie bag yesterday and today I put in a lining as you can see from the second pic. I never lined a knit purse before, so I did have a little trouble. I think next time I will ditch the sewing machine and hand sew it in place. But I consider it a success for my first "bag" project. Now I have a place to keep my cashmerino glove project and the lining will keep those pesky dp needles from poking through. Next -- the linen washcloths from Knitter's Stash: Favorite Patterns from Americas Yarn Shops. I've been wanting to make these for a while, and if they are nice and fun -- more for Christmas gifts!
