FO--Lucy Bag
Here's my first Lucy bag! This was the large size, knit in WOTA snickerdoodle.

It has two mysterious holes... but you can't see them unless you're up close. It's supposed to be a birthday gift for my best friend Jill...I think I'm going to give this to her as a provisional gift, then give her another WITHOUT holes. :rollseyes:

Not hole, Angelia. DESIGN FEATURES! They're for ventilation in case you need to carry a cat with you.

It looks wonderful--love the color, reminds me of camel's hair. Don't worry about the holes! I'm sure she'll never notice.

Love the way that turned out in the Snickerdoodle!

Could you make a couple of felted flowers to put over the holes? Perhaps like the ones on one of Marnie's hats, then just felt them? Knitwhits.com has some patterns for knitted flowers and they come with felting instructions, too.

My crafting motto is "better done than perfect", so I'd make the holes work for me some way, some how!

Oooh....felted flowers...that might work! She tends to like plain, but I might be able to make them work.

Thanks!
