Result? Colorwork.

Love the bag!! I knew I would love it, even before I saw it- with colors like Lemondrop and Limade, it's gotta be cool!

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

"Er....Whatchagonnawearthatwith?"

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. Different yarn, (some blue sky bulky that was far too thick for anything else) so it's like a brand new experience.
