I have a 2 week long blog entry to edit and complete - but in the meantime I was so excited I HAD to post. :D

My BUTTONHOLE Bag!

Pre-felt...

Started 12/14, finished last night. I LOVE these. I could knit a million of these felted bags.

The yarn is Lamb's Pride Bulky - Lemondrop and Limeade. LOVE the Lamb's Pride. I did MAJOR damage after knitting with it a few rounds and bought a BUTTLOAD. :shock:

Thanks guys!

What's cool about the "colorwork" (my , but that sounds official :happydance: ) is that it was an accident. It was the first time I was knitting with two strands held together. I started with just the yellow. As I cast on and saw the way the stitches were arranging themselves on the needles I was like: hhhhhheeeyyyyyyy! Well wouldjalookathat...I wonder what would happen if I......

Result? Colorwork. :cheering:

I love knitting. :heart: Nothing like unexpected rewards to make a girl's day. :happydance:

Can you believe the dang thing took me less than 48 hours to make and I'm proscrastinating with weaving in the ends??? :shifty:

That is gorgeous. I love the colors it looks so springy reminding me of lemonade on a spring afternoon. Where is the pattern found? I can't wait to see how it looks felted.

Thanks so much guys. I like it too. It is very springy. My SO saw it and very slowly said....

"Er....Whatchagonnawearthatwith?" :shifty:

:roflhard: I do think I'm gonna save it for spring/summer.

And the pattern is here: http://www.masondixonknitting.com/archives/2005_01.html

Really good pattern...easyish to follow, and a good way for newbies to learn shaping as part of a project that doesn't really depend on it being done 100% perfect to be recognizable when it's done. I think I may have missed an decrease or two and left it, and it was no problem.

Really fun - I started another as a belated Christmas gift. :happydance: Different yarn, (some blue sky bulky that was far too thick for anything else) so it's like a brand new experience. :shock:
