Truth be told, the button's not yet attached, nor is its mate added on the opposite bottom edge, a great idea I picked up from the knitalong list, to create a more slinglike strap. The lining fabric is drying, as I always give cottons a hot dip to prevent future shrinkage. Still and all, this is what my new summer bag looks like, here on the day I always think of as the season's start.
I just passed the fourth set of increases on the Sitcom Chic, and the last blanket square is almost off the USM and on to its duplicate-stitch embellishment. Now that baby Oscar's arrived (but still struggling; add a prayer if you're inclined), I'm thinking of altering the A B C D E to A B C O H and the 1 2 3 4 5 to 1 2 3 5 6, since he was born May 6. And it looks like Sock #5 will return to the carry-along role it's been bumped from of late. I want to complete it before I cast on for the Broadripples that are in the queue.
We enjoyed a relaxing holiday weekend, with visits to our new pool, a few special events, and several popsicles. On to June already ~ Can you believe how time flies?
