Intricate stag 3 of 30.

intricate stag 7
Doris the cat loves this bag.

intricate stag 8

She is usually a little spitfire, quick to bite and generally skittish with a virtually nonexistent purr (our other cat has terrorized her a little), but when we put her in the bag as a joke, she calmed down immediately, as if the sling around her made her feel safe and comforted. It was adorable.

And the bag is pretty cute too.

I lined the inside, and i'm totally glad that the lining worked out ok, because the back of the stranded knitting is A MESS. It's kind of a hippy bag, but I like it, it's extravagant and fun and will look cute for grocery stores or for outdoor music festivals.

For the strap, I braided something like 36 lengths of both colors of the yarn together. It was a statistical nightmare!! I forgot that when you are braiding you braid from the top down, not the end you are working with up. So I tied all of the ends to a chair, stood like 6 feet away and tried my best not to tangle everything. I should have taken pictures of that, you'd be under your desk laughing right now.
