These are my latest bags. The messenger bag is my own creation chestnut brown and natural mix color yarn. The retrowedge is from the Bag-A-Holic group from yahoogroups. Both were very easy knits. Again I'm stumped with the lining O well, the bags are gorgeous. Also undecided about the type of fasteners I will use. For the messenger bag I used size 11 needles and Chestnut Brown and Natural Mix Patons Classic Wool Merino Yarn. The retrowedge bag was knitted with the same yarn, just used different colors chestnut brown and rosewood. I love the way Patons Classic Merino Wool yarn knits up and felts. Looking through my blog, you will see I have used it on many of my bags.

Your bags are very pretty!! I don't like lining them either! :) In fact I don't line the felted ones... I will break down and line the ones that aren't felted, otherwise they will stretch to the floor with all the crap I stuff in them!!

Fellow bag knitter,

Wow, you are a felt lover aren't you? I love needle felting on felt too. My next project will be a bag. A big one I think.
