Notes

Very cute pattern. My one complaint is that the bag is noticeably floppy. Couldn’t decide what colour to use, then realized that a rainbow pattern would look super nifty--and I could try out the load of Sugar’n Cream yarn I picked up during a Michaels sale.

The bag works up quickly. I would have gotten it finished if hadn’t had to make dinner and put the boys to bed.

Bag is finished. I just need to finish the flower.


Update 1/28/2011

I tried a couple of different flower patterns and didn’t like the results, so I’m calling the bag finished.

I like the rainbow colours, but I think I should try the bag again with a smaller hook to make it sturdier--especially the handle.
