Sunflower Bag!

Finished my Sunflower bag by She-Knits. This is my first intarsia and it was quite easy! I'm so glad I taught myself the continental way of knitting because this really helped when I was stranding yarns. If you're going to try intarsia I'd recommend doing something like this that felts because if you happen to make mistakes it won't show! I did rip out a couple of times because I'd forgotten to change the different color correctly, which in turn leaves a big hole so you know you did something wrong. This was a fun, quick knit! Can't wait for it to dry so I can use it. It's perfect to throw your wallet/phone/zune/keys etc. in...turned out a lot more roomier than what I had pictured it to. Fun, fun, fun!

That bag is absolutely gorgeous! I've not yet tried intarsia, and I don't knit continental. I taught myself to knit using online videos, and sure wish they'd been continental style demonstrations! ;-) I am determined to make the switch this year, though.
