Happy FO Friday!

I finished my Zoe bag!!

This is such a cute bag. It came out a bit bigger than I expected, but I didn't want to put her through a third cycle in the machine. I just love the finished product.

Pattern: Zoe, by Carolyn Mader (May 2007 Magknits)\
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Worsted, 3 skeins main color, 1 skein contrast for ruffle. I used Red Hot Passion for the bag and Chocolate Souffle for the ruffle.
Started: May 7
Finished: May 15

The only change I made to the pattern was to knit the ruffle in the round instead of flat (I shudder at the idea of purling 280 stitches).

Some before pictures:


And in use:

Cute, no?

Hi, Jackie!

Your bag is fantastic... the picture came out great, but it is even better in person.

Hi Jackie! It came out really, really cute! I'm so excited to see my pattern used by someone. Yay! Mine came out larger too and I kept washing until I was satisfied. The Marley Jane pattern is a smaller version of the Zoe. I wanted the Zoe big to fit my baby stuff. Thanks for letting me know you completed it!

Seeing your little one ENGULFED in that bag has given me hope for the one I have on the needles to felt.
