stats: i used 10 1/2 circs and straights, 3 skeins of lamb's pride "orange you glad", and the pattern is the lucy bag from two old bags. fun, easy, and quick. excellent for that mindless knitting while watching american idol.

lucy ended up being a nice, large bag. marah (my dd) says she's really looking forward to finding my cell phone in this bag. marah enjoys sarcasm and moonlit walks on the beach.

yeah! it's cream of wheat, baby. i love cream of wheat! i like to make mine very lumpy so that you have to chew it infinite times before it goes down. it has to be made with lots o'milk and sugar. oh yeah!
