I am knitting this bag (a modified Sophie) for a friend who has done a lot of nice things for me. (My Thai Lime and Chile Spiced peanuts supplier.) She wanted "naturals" for the color, but I couldn't resist adding a hint of color. The lighter brown/butterscotch is from Ely, and the darker brown from Wooly Bear. The stripe that looks rather pink in this picture, is more of a brick color, and is Ely overdyed with raspberry dye. The maroon color is Wooly Bear overdyed with cyclamen, garnet and a touch of mulberry. It looks huge, but it will felt down to a nice sized bag. I hope.
I made the mistake of setting this down to tend to something. When will I ever learn? I can't just set things down, I have to put them away. Mom got hold of it and unraveled about 5 rows completely, and I had to unravel about another 5 to get to a good row with clean stitches. Urgh! I keep telling myself, you like knitting, you like knitting, so this just gives yourself more opportunity to knit. Yeah, not really working.
