Stag bag moving along
This is the perfect project for summer knitting. The intricate part (the stag intarsia) is at the beginning of the pattern, so when you have time to pay attention :) and count, you do that. Then you pick up on the edges and do the chevron (which is also quite easy--just K2P2), and finally you do stockinette for the back. Nothing like mindless knitting to take to the 4th of July fireworks, or other places where you can talk and knit at the same time.
Unfortunately, I don't have enough of the turquoise and cream yarn to do the whole thing, so I have to do the back with a variegated yarn that has the same turquoise in it:
I'm hoping it won't look funny, and will actually be a bit like two completely different bags, depending on how I carry it. :)
