Through the magic of blogging, I know exactly when I started knitting this bag -- it was well before the dawn of Ravelry!
A WIP for 10.5 years, it's finally finished, and I couldn't be happier.
I have run across this WIP many times (whenever I'd "organize") in the past 10 years; I've ripped out or even thrown away other projects, but always spared Tasha. I really liked that project and wanted to finish... eventually! All the pieces were knit except for the strap, and I was about half-way on that piece.
This year, it's as much about what's taking up space as it is about anything else, and I didn't want this project taking up space anymore.
Also, wouldn't it be perfect for Mexico???
It slid right into the #1 spot in the rotation. I finished the knitting, washed and dried all the pieces. I did about half the sewing up at Knit Night on Thursday, the remainder on Friday evening at home.
And now I have a "new," perfect little bag to take on vacation. Just right for my wallet, sunglasses, keys. Serendipity at work.
