Things moved a little faster when I was able stay home with my string. I haven't made as much progress now that the roads are passable (barely) and I'm back at work.
The flower and leaves on the bag are complete and I am in the top portion of just that mesh. I have no idea if this stitch has a name or not. Honeycomb maybe?
I do know it has double yarnovers and at one point I dropped a stitch and maybe a couple of those yarnovers and had a really hard time getting back up. It happened on a side between a couple of the needles. It doesn't show in this picture and I am hoping, really hoping, that after it is blocked it will not be very noticeable. It isn't like I'm going to be carrying this thing over my wrist every day!
I hope over the weekend I can finish up the bag and get started on the drawstrings. They have a leaf at each side. I can hardly wait. Truly.
*know the song?
