Had a great time at the Long Island City SnB last night, my second visit. Very welcoming group of women, who are working on some really beautiful projects!

Here's one of my three current WIPs, a knitted purse. I got the pattern from Flying Fingers yarn shop in Irvington, NY (same trip as the Yarn Bus adventure, below). I'm using a different yarn than the pattern called for, and am really liking the way this chunky cotton is knitting up.

I'm planning to line it with some funky floral cotton from a jacket that my grandmother made that doesn't fit me. My grandmother was an amazing seamstress and craftswoman, and it will be nice to think of her everytime I open the purse. :-)
