I'm not usually a fan of knit bags, but I think yours turned out great.  I love the color and the handles!

To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

Love your bag.  I have been wanting to make this for a long time. After seeing your finished bag,  I decided to take a class at Wildfiber to make this.  My only dilemma is which yarn to choose.  I have quite a bit of Malabrigo Worsted  that would be nice, but I am wondering if it is too soft.  I know it suggests Manos, which is a bit rougher than the Malabrigo.  I would love to use something I already have, but if I am going to go spend so much time knitting this, I want to use the correct yarn.  Decisions!  I have to make them quickly, because we start tonight.

Thanks is so great that you are taking the class at the store! That will be a finished object with memories knitted into every stitch.  I think the Malabrigo would be fine if (1) you get gauge or (2) don't care if the bag is a little smaller and maybe have to knit it with smaller needles, because I think the Manos is 3 sts/inch where are worsted weight yarn is usually a little smaller.

Thanks everyone for the wonderful compliments

Gorgeous!! You've been busy, it looks like - I've just commented on your Bradshaw coat.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
