Finally Done

And just like that, it's finally done...

It's been that kind of week, really. The subbing gig abruptly ended on Thursday. (Yes, I knew it was coming to a close, but it still snuck up on me and surprised me.) And when I no longer had lesson planning to do every night, I suddenly had time again to work on the windmill bag.

It's been a few weeks since I talked about the windmill bag. It was almost finished the last time, and it totally would have been finished if school hadn't started and I hadn't gotten sucked into that vacant English class. Because all I had to finish were the straps. And I had started the straps that week. (School started on Thursday.)

When I picked them up again, I used the wrong size hook. If I were to show a close up of the straps, you would notice that they suddenly shrink about halfway through. But considering how many mistakes I've made with this thing, I decided to embrace one more and keep going.

So, there it is. The windmill bag is finished.


  1. Well congratulations! Doubt anyone will notice the mistakes but you.

  2. Well done, now put on a cuppa. You deserve that much and a biscuit.

  3. I wish it was spread out so I could get a better look at it. It looks nice.

  4. Such an intricate pattern. Great job.

  5. Great bag, nicely made! Do you get paid extra if you take a vacant class like that and you have to do lesson planning, etc?


  6. It's pretty. Now, on to the next project!

  7. Embrace the imperfections and keep going. Perfect, Liz! I love the colors. They remind me of peacocks. :-)

  8. I started knitting when I was in the 9th grade, that would be FOREVER ago and yet it was not something I did all the time so I would probably not notice your mistakes. Most folks unless they knit all the time probably would not either. HOWEVER like you said, EMBRACE it. You know they are there, but most folks will not notice so its sort of like your own little secret to share or not to share....nice job for sure.

    1. I think I'd have to point them out as the way I did things, it hides the mistakes pretty well. But it was a first draft. My next one will be perfect ;)

  9. Hi Liz - well done on finishing ... love the colours - cheers Hilary

  10. Congrats on finishing this bag. The colours are bright and cheery and I doubt the average joe will see any errors
