All the knitting is complete. I just need to line it. I'm pretty happy with it so far, although I notice the front handle is slipping, so I need to tighten it in there a bit.
Real Ferragamo: around $1600
Frith-agamo: around 50 cents for the dowel
The yarn (Nature's Choice cotton) was from my husband's grandmother's stash (she de-stashed when she moved recently), and the fabric I'll use for the lining is from my stash.
