I had a productive evening of knitting and I'm doing a happy dance. I grafted the strap of my purse to it's body, picked up stitches and made a flap, and then found some instructions for a buttonhole and voila - the knitting is done. I have to weave in all the ends and then I want to line it. Because of all the junk necessary things I carry in my purse, I need to line the bottom of it with plastic canvas. A trip to my LFS is scheduled after work tomorrow. I hope to be home in time to take some pictures in natural light of the purse and liner.

Of course once I was finished with my knitting I went out to You Knit What and what do I see but a purple poodle masquerading as a purse. Great timing. It's enough to make anyone rethink the need for a knitted purse.

OH MY GOSH!! Edmonton just won Game 5 in overtime with a short handed breakaway goal by Pisani. This series is going back to Edmonton for Game 6. Guess I know what I'll be watching on TV Saturday night.

Yeah, GO OILERS!!! I just watched the re-run of last night's game and I almost got a heart attack - it's unbelievable what a hell of a fight these guys put up, they just HAVE to win the Cup! If I wouldn't go to Cyprus next week, I'd jump into the next plane for Edmonton to give them my support - no kidding here, I'm dead serious!
That big butt purse at "You Knit What" kicks major ass in the true sense of meaning :) I'm absolutely sure that your purse is way, way cooler! I'd love to see the pics of the finished piece in all its glory!

Definitely post some pictures of your new purse... sounds great! And Edmonton! I know - I couldn't watch last night (i.e., I was keeping my eyes on my knitting) because I was expecting the worst and then that beautiful goal by Pisani. Fabulous!
