After a long wait… I finially picked up the rest of my yarn last night. I now have enough to start the basket. I was missing the green to variegate my trellis. I am so happy now that I can get back to my bag. This will be a work in progress. Here are my stats so far:
Needles: US#19 Long Straight Rosewood for bag and US#19 Short Straight Rosewood for Roses and Leaves
Trellis Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Kiwi and Cascade 220 Heather Green (variegating both yarns at the same time)
Roses: Manos Flam and Cascade Blood Red
Background: Galway Black
Leaves: Lamb’s Pride Kiwi and Cascade 220 Heather Green (mixing the 2 colors and doing some just by them selves)
I was going to do my bag in the round after reading Fmarr’s version in Knitter’s Review but after looking at photo’s of those bags I think I am going to go with the original pattern. Working in flat and seaming the sides.
I will post pictures once I begin again.
Stay tuned for my adventures of my knitting experience on the Vogue Felted Bag.
