I subscribe to Berroco's weekly internet newsletter. A couple of weeks ago the edition came with something that I find rather fetching:
It's a knitting tote made from Berroco Suede, and I really like it. Berroco's designs often have a "fashion-forward" edge that I like. Sometimes the patterns are just too trendy for this knitter, but the design of this bag, I think, walks the fashion/trendy line just fine. Plus, I have been looking for an excuse to use Suede. The colorway selection continues to expand, but I'm partial to the green shown above.
The pattern is free, which is another bonus. Let's file this under "stylish bags to knit", shall we?
I also occasionally cruise Annie Modesitt's blog (I tend to lurk), and this bag reminds me a lot of the red cabled bag that she has in her sidebar (apparently the pattern was designed by one of Annie's students). I know nothing about the bag (size, yarn gauge, etc.) but I know that I like it.
By the way, Annie, so happy to see that you're offering a RSS feed! I had to subscribe to http://www.modeknit.com/blog/index.html instead of simply entering "http://www.modeknit.com/blog" into Bloglines, but still, it works. Yay!
