The monster bag

Pattern: Majolica Vase Bag by Noni
Yarn: Nashua Creative Focus Worsted:
base-#3249 Chocolat, #3317 Mint
flowers - #2055 Carmin

This - Bag - is - HUUUUGE! My favorite part was knitting the base of the bag because it is done in fair isle. Because this is a display for the store, I followed the directions exactly. If I were to make it for myself, I would shorten the handles.

Don'tcha love the color combo? Yarntopia colors, natch.

Hey, hey, hey

This is the makings of the Noni Majolica Vase bag. It's HUGE! For perspective, I had my friendly neighborhood models show off some of the goods. Doesn't the first picture remind you of that kid on Fat Albert? More on the bag in a few days when I'm done felting.

Pick Up Sticks! Triangle

Pattern: Triangle from Pick Up Sticks!
Yarn: This came in a kit, but it uses Cascade 220
Comments: I knit this as a sample for the shop, although it is so cute I hated to part with it. This would be a great advanced beginner project.
