From Vogue Knitting Winter 2004/05 Issue:

What inspired me to create my bag? While traipsing through the British countryside, I came upon a beautiful classic English rose garden--no just kidding! I’d actually been wanting to work up this lovely two-color trellis pattern, and then felt it, for some time, and this was the perfect opportunity to do it. Roses seemed appropriate for this pattern; I was eating Godiva chocolates from England while knitting them--for inspiration , of course!
