Wonder of Wonder...
Miracles of Miracles. My bag actually came out just fine!! I couldn't be happier! I knew I had over 4 hours to knit in the car yesterday, so I just decided to keep on knitting on the bag and try to loosen my gauge a bit and see what happened. The further along I got, and the heavier the weight of the bag, the more it seemed to stretch and loosen what had already been knit. When I finally finished, it was basically the same size and I knew that the felting process would take care of the rest. And so here it is!
And here is the back. It still is one of my favorite bags that I have done. Just not my favorite bag to actually knit! But I can certainly see doing more in my future. Lots of fun color combinations out there that you could do!

As we were driving out of Galena yesterday I saw this amazing billboard! Can you believe it? A whole medical clinic that sees the value of having fiber in your life. Now, I am just sure that they are talking about the whole fiber arts thing and how knitting or other fiber related activities can reduce stress etc.. I mean what other kind of fiber is there that could really be a 'friend'?
We had lunch today at one of our new favorite restaurants downtown Galena. They have a Shrimp Po-Boy sandwich that I love. I order it every time. Usually I like to vary things up a bit but I do get into ruts at some restaurants. Like Big Bowl. I always have to get Chicken Pad Thai. (And I know some of you can relate... right Karen?) Always. I know that if I get something else I will be disappointed. Am I the only one that does this?
My husband continues to polish his role as my very own 'Mr. Wonderful'. Guess what he did today? He actually made the calls to get more information on and sign up for dance lessons. We've talked about wanting to do this before Ryan and Mallory's wedding and he actually is making it happen. Wow. That certainly will be fun to blog about! Stay tuned!
Until Next Time.....
