back and bag

Ok so I spent a lot of time in the car. Knitting. On this bag.

And let me tell you how Painfully Booooooring this is. Painfully Boooooooring. Luckily there was a lot of singing in the car and I can sing and knit at the same time. I didn’t knit at all on the way home. I was way too tired. But after we got back, unpacked, repacked and came to Mary Esther I spent some more time on the Bag That Wouldn’t End. Here’s my current progress.

The curly bit in the middle is the handle.

I had to cast on 349 stitches for the handle. 349! Do you know how long that takes? A really really long time. Did I mention that it’s HOT here? And the bag is wool? Which makes for some itchy knitting.
