This was knit with Lamb's Pride Periwinkle & Noro Kureyon #52 held together for the tweedy part; the contrast is Lamb's Pride Jack's Plum.

I knit this one in the dimensions of a Booga Bag but used the Oregon Tote techniques, which make for a very sturdy bag.

One thing: Doing this in the Booga dimensions caused the "buttonholes" on the end panels to be pretty close together; I think the next one I make I will go back to the Oregon Tote dimensions.

Thanks, everyone!

Julie -- only 3 left to go! (maybe four -- I'm not happy w/ the first one now that I've switched techniques -- it's too flimsy)

Thank you, everybody!! I'm overwhelmed!

I was really unsure about the color combination when I started, but I took a poll @ the last IL knitters gathering, and everyone gave me a thumbs up on it. So, they get lots of credit for it!

It was really fun putting these two yarns together, given my penchant for variegated and self-striping yarn! *And* it really made a nice sturdy bag, whereas the Kureyon alone comes out rather flimsy. Pretty, but flimsy.
