Since my co-worker taught me how to knit back in January, I've been knitting like a maniac! I had purchased some novelty yarn on sale last year and tried to crochet with it but found that I didn't really like the way it looked. It then sat in a drawer for months while I tried to figure out what to do with it. Finally I decided it would be a fun yarn to make into a bag. I've made small bags and clutches before but never something like this! I tried searching around for a pattern that would work and ended up modifying a couple of different patterns to make something that worked. I then let it sit for a couple of weeks while I got together the motivation to line it! I am really quite proud of the end result and especially love the colors. Although I think I'm probably going to end up listing this in my Etsy store (after I line the handles - thanks to a helpful hint from someone in the Craftster forums) I have several skeins of this yarn left in a couple of different colors so I'll probably end up making one for myself!
