I even went back and Kitchener stitched the toe on the first sock "the right way." Originally, I mis-read the sock recipe, and though it said to Kitchener stitch 8 stitches together (4+4), but it is two sets of 8 stitched (8+8), hence the wonkiness on the first toe. Oh, but they are beautiful now, and my feet feel slightly unworthy, like maybe I should shave my legs and paint my toes pretty colors to make them look pretty enough to be put into these socks. Please don't any of you hold your breath while waiting for that to happen!
I also went back and turned this:
I cut almost a foot off the handle and then did a three needle bind off with the stitches. I thought about Kitchener stitching it, but it just didn't look right. I am now so in love with this bag - I wished it matched my socks so I could wear them together tomorrow, but it doesn't, and I don't care...Fashion/matching be damned, I am knitter, look at me knit and not match and wear Spring Socks with a brick/wheat colored bag while rockin' out with a pair of green alpaca wrist warmers...Any funny looks I get tomorrow will only be because people are jealous of my krazee kool style and knitting ability, at least that is what I am going to tell myself!
Peace out kids!
