Road Bag
I knitted this bag, called the Road Bag from a pattern in a book called Bags that Rock by Kelly Deal. For those in the know she sings with the alternative rock band the Breeders and also knits. I'm not in the know, but my husband likes the Breeders and saw her book and got it for me for Christmas. Anyway, lots of cute ideas in the book and some good bag patterns.

I started this bag March 7th and finished it today, March 13th including felting, lining it, attaching the strap (a jeans inseam), and a magnetic snap. I also had to work a lot this week, so it was a quick project.

More pics on my Ravelry page. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/newamy/road
