It Takes a Village (or at least Mom)

I'm done - I'm finally done! At long last my Berroco suede tote is finished! It was the August Oh Bag Me KAL project and come October it is finally finished. I finished knitting it in August but it has taken this long to do all the finishing. And I must admit that I haven't done most of the finishing - my wonderful and talented mother has done it. She sewed it up for me and put in the lining and the rest. Isn't she great? THANKS MOM - you are wonderful. Now I can use my bag with pride. I'm so excited that it's done.

LOVE THE BAG! Can I adopt your mom?? Did you mention the pattern? I think I'll make me one of those - I love the lining - classy bag!! Oh, and baby blankets.. I think that they are impossible to finish unless they are made by the mom to be. I have 2 started - I swear - the kids will be in college before I finish!! ARRGGG.

Allison, beautiful bag. How nice to have your mother put on the finishing touches. My mother does the same, she loves weaving in the ends!

Thanks to all for the kind words! The pattern is a free Berroco pattern on their website for the suede tote.

I love the shock of color inside the bag. It's like you have a little secret just for you, no one else knows until you share with them. :D It's really a beautiful bag.

Oh, I found your blog through Laurie C's blog ( I think so anyway) and was reading back posts...just so you don't think I'm a stalker or anything. :P
