Probably won't do Emerald with the mohair, too big a gauge difference...I'm pretty focused on the Cascade bag right now...frogged the Silk Garden idea in favor of knitting in a strap in the lilac wool, maybe in a simple small basketweave pattern, so that I'll only have one spot to stitch. I didn't like the idea of sewing all the straps on, just seems like you'd be dealing with weaknesses eventually. This way, hopefully, there's only one weak spot. I'll finish the body in another day or two.
Weather's almost pleasant today, breezy and warm. Another month or so and we might just be able to wear pants outdoors for longer than 10 minutes at a time.
