Overlay Bag & a Correction

Business first:
It seems there is a small error in the Cast On Winter Gems. Anyone wishing to make them, please note the change in the written instructions for the cable. It should read like this--

Rows 33 and 35: (P2, k4) 4 times, p2. (correction 9/21/07)

Now for some fun. Here is my sample of the Overlay Felted Tote in the fall Interweave Crochet.
This one is made with good ol' Cascade 220 100% wool (no, I swear I don't own any stock nor am I employed by the company--as many of you know, it's just one of the best worsted-weight wools for the price). The base tote is felted, but the French Square overlay is not. Those are colors #8013 and #9452.
Good things just continue...we are going to Hood River, OR, on November 10 to do a presentation and class on cabling at Knot Another Hat! Yea! I am so looking forward to that, because Sarah and Yvonne are my online friends who I finally get to meet in person! Get ready for some hugs, you guys! Also, my trunk show will be there starting the first weekend of November and continuing for the whole month. If you are anywhere near, I hope you will stop in and see us (or at least my stuff!)
I have been happily held hostage with new design ideas the past couple of days.! I'm finally letting myself get back to some freelance submissions--I just can't resist any longer.
Also, with six patterns in test and one in editing stage, there will be some new designs on the Figheadh site soon, so stay tuned!
I hope you have had a good week, and I wish you a fabulous fall weekend!

Great tote and great colors together. Thannks for mentioning the correction. One of my friends at knit and bitch wants to make that pattern. I will tell her about the error before she gets started.

Oh boy, there go my plans to clean up the garden today! I just found your site and the gardening plans can wait...have to venture out to Barnes & Noble to find those magazines and buy yarn for those cabled do realize that the Mall on a weekend is a pure suicide mission? I don't attempt that place without serious due cause. LOL! Such gorgeous need to put a disclaimer at the top for us slackers who will put off work in favor of knitting adventures! :-)
