beaded knitted bag

When I posted the start of this project on my Ravelry page, I realized that I have knitted at least eight of these unquestionably beautiful bags.
And they all left home - not a one stayed behind.  So this little bag will never go to market!  I'm keeping it here with me, tucked away safely where no one can see and ask to 'borrow' it.  That's how it begins - with the innocent gasp of pleasure, followed by the cooing and petting and eye-rolling.  I'm a sucker for it every time.  This bag begins with beads - 660 of them, to be precise.
The #6 beads are strung on your skeined Koigu or other sturdy light fingering weight fiber.
It really helps to have a pretty yarn bowl as you will be sliding beads back and forth between your rows.  I have not found this to be a portable knit!
But it is, hands down, truly satisfying.  You can find the pattern on Ravelry - it hails from Holly Webb and she calls it  "Exploring Stripes". Nice job, Holly - as much fun today as it was the first time, back in '03!
