This is my second go at the poster boy bag. The first one I did in Lotus Pink and Brown, and gave it to my friend. She washed and dried and shrunk it Sad

This one is all for me! I knit it a while ago, but just finished lining it today. I knew I needed some lining material that would rock hard, and I think I found it!







Whatcha think?

That's really cool. I love the lining, but then I love anything with skulls and crossbones. Roll Eyes

when I saw the little pic on the front page I thought it was Jim Morrison. It's a really cute bag. I love that fabric you choose for the lining.

So cool!  I love it.  I've been thinking about making this bag for awhile but until recently I was kinda afraid of inartasia other than fair isle.  You've inspired me to give it a shot.

Intarsia isn't too difficult, you just have to make sure that you don't pull the thread that's running behind too tight, and you just twist it in every few stitches. I think Stitch n Bitch has really easy instructions. You should give it a go!

Thanks everyone for the kind words

This is knit in the round, no?
I am going to do a Gerard Butler one and I am not sure I feel like doing it in the round. (Lazy Sam I am.)
