Thanks you guys!
Thanks to everyone who contributed ideas for my bag handles. Looks like it will be a thick icord(2) in black. I am “fairly” sick of fair isles as of this writing, but have now had my 2nd bourbon and Coke and should be good to go for a while. I only have about 8 rows to go, and I have now mastered the art of two fisted fair isles so things are much less tangly and are moving along faster. At this point, I am expecting to finish on time. (bourbon and Cokes notwithstanding) Hope all of you athletes out there are feeling as good as I am right now!
