Buttonhole Bag
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.

Thanks guys!

What's cool about the "colorwork" (my , but that sounds official ) 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.

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

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

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.
