One for the team...The Fun Bag

well, here she is! The Fun Bag was completed during last night's women skaters competition. go russia! oh, i mean japan! finishing touches were made during the Daily Show, hence the name....kidding...the name comes from the fun happy face lining. i was gonna go with The Happy Bag, but something about fun bag(s) just makes me chuckle. The pattern is a combination of the BoomBox Bag (Knit Grrl) and my deviant ways. the pattern called for one colour. bored of the cape cod (patons), i added some rich aubergine (patons). the pattern also called for an ipod pocket, which i skipped, since i don't own one, but decided to add a flower (knitty.com). the straps, i doubled up on the yarn and made them a bit shorter. i also added snap button closure, they may have to go tho. all in all, not bad.
This project was part of the 2006 Knitting Olympics.
many thanks go out to Jay, my mom and the groovy team at Clarity for making this a reality. thanks for all of your help and patience with this snappy project!
