Knitting By the Sea in Carmel. I made up the pattern based on the picture I took at the yarn shop. I changed it a bit - I did a mitered square bottom rather than a round one, and I like the way the corners peek up just a little at the bottom. The yarn is Noro Kochoran, which is 30% angora and has a lovely halo.
I started the bag when I got home, so that I would have the right needles at hand, so it has to settle for a photo shoot here, rather than on a California beach, or in a lemon tree! I'd say the grass looks rather Californian, though, after the dry spell we've had.
I also want to sew in the ends and sew the buttons onto my hemp cardi, since I got so very close before we left! As it turned out, the weather in San Francisco was gorgeous and sunny, and I wouldn't have needed the wooly cardi, so it was okay that I hadn't finished it before we left. Good thing I didn't stay up into the wee hours trying to get it done!
