I have big balls....

of yarn. Tee hee! I had planned on putting this post up before Chichimama nagged us to do it, just for the record.


Here is my yarn. The red is a bit off thanks to the flash on my camera. The red is Cascade Eco+ and the gray is Cascade Ecological wool (same brand the colors are just given a slightly different name). This is an Aran weight yarn and rather unprocessed. It has more of a sheepy smell than I am used to and is on the scratchy side.


Here is the base of my bag. I knew this would turn out smaller than the pattern since I am using a slightly lighter yarn so I doubled the number of main color rows on the bottom and widened the base a bit.


Here is the icord for the handles. I started these first while I was waiting to get the circular needles for the bag. I am almost done with both handles.

Love the colors! And that's a great idea to do the I-cord first. I'll have to try that while waiting to get my other needles.

I have to break out my camera and take a few photos.

lol! I love your post title!!! You'll get some interesting Google hits from that! (I once titled a post "Forbidden Pleasures." It was quite fun to go into Sitemeter and see what Google searches brought people to my blog...lol!)
