I finished this awhile ago, I love it, it's my only bag.  After taking these photos though, I sewed in a lining and a massive chunky zip to hold it all together.

I found the pattern brilliant, so easy and quick to do! (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTunbiased.html)


In all it's beautifulness.

Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, it's not your fault.
They won't take you to the vet,
You're probably not their favorite pet.
You may not be a bed of roses
And you're no friend to those with noses

Oh I like yours a lot.
I've made a panel and a half.  It doesn't take long to knit, but I've been so busy. Sad
I love sari silk though.

Oooh I like it. I've been eyeing that pattern, and I want to knit myself a bag, I just want a really big one. Is it very roomy?

Wow, that looks great!
I love the colour of sari silk you used, you often see it spun in the earthy and pinky tones, I've never seen it in navy blueish tones before- pretty!!!
My sister is knitting this same pattern at the moment and I know she's really enjoying it- I'll point out your photos to her, she'd love to see another cool finished product.
Well done Smiley
