Most of the knitted color work is just blocks/shapes of color, the fine color detail is embroidered on top of the finished peice. Then after it's felted, it all looks the same. :heart:

I'm thinking of using those flower patterns to make a purse too. How cool would that be?

Yes, it's the new Fall issue. The yarn is Reynold's Lite-Lopi. I don't know if it's necessarially lime green, or just how the pic turned out. I don't have a scanner, so I just took a pic of the page with my camera. ;)

My LYS owner was at the big fiber show in Ohio early this summer. She saw the bag IN PERSON at Interweave's display table and every time I go in (which is often), she asks if I have seen THE BAG. Apparently, it was awe inspiring.

Carol--I had said when I first saw it that I hoped my sister never got a look at it because she adores Mary Poppins and I'm sure she'd want me to make it for her! :rofling:

very funny, KK!!!!
i actually considered making the bag, but I was like, really, who needs a bag that big? Besides me, of course :rollsyeyes: Maybe after the elenenty-plex clogs.

BUT the sweater I was desperatly looking for is the one on the cover of that issue!!!! Yay!

I do, I do!! I'd use it as a suitcase. How incredibly cute would that be? MUCH MUCH cuter than my current hockey size duffle bag!

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE that bag. I would rub it and squeeze it and hug it and maybe even call it George. That would make a fabo knitting tote.

So Silver, when are you beginning the bag? How many skeins does it take?
