Thanks again all who weighed in on the "what do I do with this bright yellow mohair" debate  Grin.  I was in the midst of swatching out some ideas when I ran across a thread on another site about the Quinn Bag, and tried out the stitch pattern... never expected cables to work out in mohair, but it did!

(note that the yarn is actually much brighter than this  Wink)

So I'm up against the next quandry:  the strap.  I wear my bags messanger-style across the chest (my shoulders slope so much that I can't keep the bag on otherwise), and I'm not enamoured with the idea of a swath of bright yellow mohair across the front of me... Any more grand ideas out there?

A dark brown strap would look nice, either knitted or pre-made and sewn on (like maybe a leather strap?)

since its already such a unique piece, why not a strap made out of something awsome like: a guitar strap or a recycled belt?  i see brown faded soft leather.

I'd head to Target and check out the belts.  I think a pretty chain would look nice.  Or something with beads.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*
