Project Mama's Summer Handbag

The skeins, post dye

Wound into balls ready to go

The beginning of the bag

After wrangling with the wool 3 times in the dye bath and it not coming out nicely, I finally had the wool ready to start on the requested bag. I chose a favourite bag pattern from Debbie Stoller's Stitch N Bitch: The Happy Hooker. I'm hoping desperately that I will have just enough wool dyed to finish it!. I have 150g, the pattern asks for 140. I'm to gauge, so it should be fine, but I worry, none-the-less, because its impossible to dye wool exactly the same colour again!
