Here is a quick little bag I knit up. With everything I make I learn something new.....my lining doesn't have enough give for the bag, since the bag is pretty flexible. ah well, it's cute and suitable for summer. The strap is simple i cord.

excuse the pj's.....not too classy

That's great!  Do you have a pattern?

I'm moving to Seattle!  PM me if you know about knitting groups there! Or a favorite yarn store!

Very cute! Did you have any problems with doing the cables in a cotton yarn? I did a washcloth that way and it killed my hands. Anyhoo, love the lining and the bag. Smiley

Pretty!  That lining was the perfect choice -- I love how it pops.

Thanks for the nice comments!

Yeah, it was a little tough cabling with cotton, especially this really heavy stuff. Luckily it's just a small bag, so it didn't kill my hands too much. There were a couple times though when I took a break because my hands were sore!

oh, and to rjbell, i didn't use a pattern....just did two C4front twists on the side, the plain stockinette columns and the big braid in the middle. it was my first time doing a braid, so i just did a search and found the stitch pattern. knit two, sew up, line, add i cord strap. very simple!
