Ask Poops, Please

Putting my two cents in.

Born and bred in a small New England town, I am convinced that I know something about everything, and that my opinion matters. If only to me. Well, you'll see what I mean. And I love to knit, so you'll see what kind of things I'm doing when I should be vacuuming the living room.

My Noro Bag est Finis!

TA-DA! One fully lined, fully functional purse, and this one's all MINE!

Woot!

Here's a shot with my hand so you can get an idea of the scale. Not as roomy as my other striped bag due to the structured sides (no stretch), but more dressy and tailored. Better for more dressy occasions. Like going to WallyWorld, which is where we just got back from. Yes, I dress for the WalMart. Kidding. I was just giving it a trial run, and I must say that it performed admirably. A closer shot of the top view. The colors are truest in this picture.
An even closer shot of the stitches. I didn't felt the crap out of it like I usually do. The Noro Kureyon that I used (thank you, Secret Pal Mandy!) didn't felt as much as the Knitpicks WOTA that I used for the bottom and the bobble brim. So it's fuzzy, but not solid felt. There's still some nice stitch definition to be seen.
The handles are bamboo with brass from Joanns, and the lining is a green linen blend of some sort. I was looking for sturdy-ish and green and failed to take note of what it actually was. But it was in the linen blend suitings, so there you go.
And that's it! My kicky new bag! Yay for me!

That's gorge! I really like those handles too. Normally I don't like bamboo handles, but there's something about those ones...

And I especially appreciate that you refer to WalMart as "The WalMart." I do too.
