I love this knitted tote!
I just found this pattern and this is going to be my next project. So far I have not been able to find the Trio yarn locally. I have one more LYS to call and see if she has it. If not I'll have to order it online. See below...isn't it pretty!!?

I want to make this so badly! But I have so many projects on the board right now, it's not funny.

I've had my eye on that one for a while, but I can't find the yarn, either.

i actually have the yarn and the colors in the picture. i started making it and had about 1/3 of it done when i found that i had somehow messed up the seed stitch and couldn't seem to frog back to where the error was. i never started it up again cuz i got distracted by every other pretty yarn i found that needed to be worked too! someone (sorry i don't remember who after all this time) had told me that the yarn is really flimsy so the bag doesn't really stand up as pretty like it does in the picture unless completely full. They had frogged theirs after they were done with it and found something else to do with the yarn.

one of these days i will dig it back out and start it again. i had started it when i first started knitting so i am thinking that i will get through it much quicker this time!

I found it!
I was able to buy the yarn :D from Royal Yarns.com. I saw the yarn on ebay then when I emailed them asking if they had the other color I needed they told me it was on their website..Royal Yarns. So I ordered it and got a $5.00 OFF for placing my order online. I got the yarn today only FOUR days after ordering!! I am impressed and will be confident ordering from them again.

The yarn is much "thinner" than I expected. The balls are small too. So now I am wondering just how big or SMALL this bag will end up being.

I think a Chenille yarn in pretty colors might work just as well. That was my thought when I opened the bag and saw the yarn.

I need to buy the circular needles this weekend then I will begin the bag. I'll let you all know how it comes out. :XX:

that's one of the first patterns that I ever bookmarked after learning to knit. I thought it would be pretty in recycled silk.

That is a cute bag... what weight is the yarn? I would definitely have to sub for something I can get here.
