Loose Ends and Hardangervidda

Dear Cynthia,

The bag pattern is almost done. Here are the samples I made for it.

Hardangervidda continues, and now I'm in the black hole of stockinette, until the piece measures 17" from the turning ridge. Not one to miss an opportunity to talk about trivial math.....out of 20 skeins this project calls for, I'm just completing my 6th skein right now, almost three weeks into the project. I **really** want this done by the end of November, about six weeks away. That means to get back on schedule, I must be done with 10 skeins by next Wednesday (allowing one week at the end for "finishing" work, which is **quite** significant on this project). I'd better get busy.....

Warm regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

Oh, the handbags are both wonderful! Like something Nordstrom would sell for $495!

The sweater is looking lovely as well...I hope you make your deadline!
