This is my Grand Daughter, Joy, who gets to keep this project. I used the graph from "Bagged!" but did a base alternating stripes of the Malabrigo and the Schoppel Wolle in garter stitch before picking up the stitches around the base to make the bag. The yarn was yummy to knit stranded, and felted up beautifully! I am delighted, and so is Joy!
