LUCY BAG with JJ MONTERA Handpainted yarn


After felting

Before felting

I just completed a LUCY BAG with one skein of JJ MONTERA

hand painted yarn from New Zealand.

I started off following the pattern for the large bag, but after the base, I knit 100 rounds instead of 120. I had just enough yarn from one skein to complete the entire bag and handle.

This knit up very quickly and shrunk alot after just 1 wash. The color waves are

just beautiful and totally unexpected. The waves are the same on both sides.

A joy to knit and a wonderful result!!

I purchased the yarn at the Wooster Fiber Festival from

Yarn Knit by Sue

in Fairview Park, Ohio (west side of Cleveland)

Wow that turned out sooo cool, and to think the yarn just did that on its own.
