I cut my knitting...........

And it didn't hurt! This was so cool. This panel was knit in the round, sewn up the sides and cut just inside two of the seams. The handle is linen stitch and sewn all the way around to create the sides and the bottom as well as the handle. On the handle, I ripped it out and made it longer, then did a 3 needle bind off in the middle. Way cool!

Wow! That's beautiful! Makes me want to try Fair Isle again. Steeks, though, they're scary. But now you can hold my hand, if I ever get that far. ;-)
