My knitting guru, Jenn, knit the cutest bag last summer. Yup, last summer. She planned to line it but wasn't sure she could/would, so I happily offered. She handed it over at the end of the summer with some cute fabric. She also tucked in a skein of Shelter as payment--which she shouldn't have. No really. She shouldn't have...read on!
Because then fall and winter came along and there was "no rush" as it's such a seasonal bag. But I finally got it lined in spring. But then! Then a whole bunch of strange scheduling snafus prevented a handoff of her bag. And suddenly (well, it felt like suddenly) it was summer and she was still without her bag. I think she might have suspected some ownership via possession was afoot.
But we finally met up at an impromptu knit night and I am happy to report, the bag is with its creator. Lined--with pockets and a key fob--and everything.
