WHEW!

This purse took all of 4 days to make (and it doesn't have a strap, but that'll take what, an hour to knit?), and the fair isle was KILLING me throughout! This was the first time I've EVER knit with more than one yarn - for this pattern, I was knitting with up to 5 yarns at time. !!?!?! *falls over*

The pattern was from "Not Your Mamma's Knitting" - there are some sweet patterns in that book, but I'd always had my heart set on this one. ^_~

I love this bag!
You have a done a great job and are far braver than I (I've only ever done whole row stripes). Great job.

I only like certain types of fair-isle, and I love this in these yarns! The different weights and textures makes it more interesting without loosing the stranded look. Great Job :]

Oh, and what yarns did you use?

Excuse me, this is done in fair isle, not intarsia >_+

Also, I couldn't tell you the type of yarn; I lost the label. Le sigh.
