Caution Ahead!

There are pictures of beautiful yarn and a mystery bag.

Bought some yumminess today at The Knitting Room. These here are Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball. I just love the colours. Soooo beautiful. When knit up, it has long colour repeats and the colours fade into each other. Get them while the store has them. They're practically running out the door. Ran into ClaireR at the store and she was there picking up the same thing.

Here is the mystery bag after finishing clue #3. Loving the bag so far. Can't believe how fast this knits up. I guess with bulky yarn doubled, anything knits up quick. The bag looks good even when it's not felted. It will be interesting to see how it looks once its felted. Clue #4 comes out today. Can't wait!
Oh, and as for the long strands of the blue on the wrong side, I just used those lockable stitch markers to hold the stitches and tinked out the blue yarn. Then I threaded the blue yarn back into those held stitches and wrapped it around the strands on the wrong side as I went. Don't know if that makes any sense, but it worked out!

Lovely yarn and very nice bag! I'm looking forward to seeing it felted, too.

Sounds like you did just fine in dealing with the long carries of yarn. :)
