Cardboard wouldn't appeal to me either. How about plastic canvas? It's flexible and bendy, but not too heavy or expensive. I think it would work well.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

I'm knitting this bag too but with the Noro Silk Garden yarn.  I didn't knit the petunias as the stripes the yarn makes is pretty neat. 

Off topic but anyone know where the dress the model is wearing come from??  I love those knit dresses. <3

Over the past week and a half (?) I've been knitting about a row a day. Which is nothing but that's all I've really had time for - sad, isn't it? Yesterday I was at my grandparents' house and was able to knit quite a bit.

I basically have to do double what you see in these pictures + the straps + lining and it'll be done. I want to be done the knitting portion by the end of this week. For sureeeee. I can't wait to iron it out so that it's smooth and you can actually see the flowers properly - not as a mess like it appears right now. Also, it seems pretty bunched up because I'm using shorter needles than the pattern called for. It's stuffed here with a dress of mine for better viewing Smiley






Also, I adore the dress too! Sigh. So lovely.

Oh fellow knitters, I've grown so bored of knitting the Petunia Tote. I was thinking about stopping after 1.5 repeats of the pattern instead of 2 but I can't find my receipt for the yarn and I really don't want to see anymore of this pink when I'm done so I figured I'd just do the full 2 repeats. Here it is, awkwardly stuffed with my (clean) pajamas. I swear, I'll get it done... eventually. Tongue

Wow - your Petunia bags look great!

I've been thinking about doing this bag in Cotton Ease - do you think that would be a suitable substitute for Tahki Cotton Classic?

Also, for those of you that are making the bag shorter - does that mean you end up with partial flowers near the top of the bag, since you are doing a partial repeat? If so, how does that look?

I have no idea what Cotton Ease is like but I'm sure most yarns would work for this project.

I think if you wanted to only do 1.5 repeats and didn't want partially finished flowers, after you're done your first repeat and you start the second, just don't start the second flower. If that makes sense.

I loved this pattern when I first saw it in IW but got distracted by other WIPs.

But am really encouraged to start soon by seeing everyone's progress photos!
