The Cedar Leaf Shawlette will look beautiful with this yarn. What better way to carry the project along with you in that great looking bag. I would love to win this prize!

Teresa said...

I love bags. I think I start new projects just so I can use one of the bags I have collected. This one is quite lovely as is the yarn. Thanks for another great contest.

Hi. My name is Diana, and I'm a purse-oholic. The bigger the better, though I keep TRYING to rein it in! This is a lovely bag, and it tells me that it wants to live with me. :-) artemis06@gmail.com

I would look sooo stylish carrying this bag! It would be much better than the paper bag I'm currently using! :D

Sue Smith said...

Wonderful bag and yarn - it would be a joy to win it, especially since I take my knitting to work with me. This bag has the right "look" for a professional office (I'm a College Instructor and work full-time at the College as a manager). I've taught a number of our students to knit and spin, too!

If the random # generator selects me, my email is sdsmith@ntcnet.com.

What a classy looking bag and then this gorgeous, luxurious wool as well!... I dare say, yes!, I would love to have it. Knitting is not only my passion, but also my relaxation, my everyday joy and my escape from problems for a while. I only knit with natural fibers since it is a complete experience of pattern challenge, texture and color which I am after. I would be soo proud to have a beautiful bag to store and transport my ongoing project in. Keeping my fingers crossed .... Thanks and good luck to all who are hoping.

Linda said...

I would love to win this beautiful bag! I would then be able to take my knitting everywhere I go and feel stylish.

Barbara said...

I will admit that the reason I want the bag is sheer bag lust and greed. It's gorgeous and I have no resistance to a pretty bag.

I would love this bag because then I would have a really good looking bag to carry my knitting in. I usually carry it in a zip-lock bag, which seems to lack class! :) Did I mention that pink is my favorite color?

Lynn said...

Must have the bag (and the yarn) to add to my out of control collection. It's a lovely bag and exactly what I need when using the yarn.

I seem to have started collecting lovely bags ( to put knitting projects in, of course). This lovely one would be just perfect. And Fleece Artist yarn is always lovely

KrystlZ said...

What a beautiful bag! I would actually love to be able to give both to my best friend for her birthday, the colors are right up her alley.

Wendy said...

The only thing I can say is.........the bag and the yarn are both beautiful......and they belong with me!!

Karen said...

I would love to win this bag! It is so beautiful!!! The cedar leaf shawlette would look absolutely stunning in the pink color that is shown too! Which, by the way is my favorite color! I don't have a knitting bag, so it would be a splendid surprise if I won! =)

I am such a huge fan of NeverNotKnitting and her work. I love bags so much and this one is completely unique and adorable. It would be so perfect for a lightweight sweater project or shawl.

Dee said...

What a pretty bag! It would be so much nicer to carry my projects in instead of a plastic bag! lol. And the rise yarn is so lovely!

Kay Cooke said...

If I win this bag, then that would I would have something handmade in the USA by someone who LOVES making new things. If I win I will donate the yarn to a Breast Cancer fundraising raffle we are having here at the end of the month. Is that a winner????
Good luck to everybody.

seashellg said...

Thank you Lynn for donating the beautiful knitting bag. And the Fleece Artist Woolie Silk yarn from Yarn Palace Yarns would be appreciated. seashellg@gmail.com

Unknown said...

It's stylish, beautiful and matches with everything so I wouldn't be embarrassed to carry it to work so that I can knit on my lunch break. :)

An ocean separates me from my mom. For so long I am planning to make a beautiful soft shawl for her to wrap around her neck so she would feel my hug from so far away. She inspired me to start knitting. She would always knit beautiful garments for all the family and friends, never for herself. She has an ever so big heart, giving everything she can not only to family but to the people in need (E.g.she donated all her pillows and blankets to the Red Cross to help families who were the victims of floods). She has never had the opportunity to enjoy such a high quality yarn. I would be so happy to make this dream come true!

Nina said...

I love the Cedar Leaf-pattern! It's a beautiful shawlette. And the bag looks great!!

marianne said...

The bag and yarn are beautiful. And I could use the bag, since I have more than one sweater on the needles and they each need their own bag!

Michele said...

If the random number generator selected me to win this bag....I could use the plastic bags I currently use to hold projects for the trash!

I'd love to have this bag because one can never have too many gorgeous knitting bags or too much Fleece Artist yarn... at least, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it! ;-) Laura

I'd like to win this bag because it fits totally with my style. Black with a touch of color is very smart... It seems soooo big I'm sure I could carry on my project and still have enough space for new yarn purchases! Haha.

Great bag - it would make any project happy to be tucked inside! And a new-to-me yarn - what a treat!

What a gorgeous bag! I would love to carry my knitting around in it. And the yarn is also beautiful and I have been wanting to make the Cedar Leaf Shawlette. Thanks for the contest!

I usually use a plastic shopping bag from the supermarket as my knitting bag. However, as I build up my collection of the reusable supermarket bags, I have fewer plastic ones to use as knitting bags. This bag would solve my problem!

Oh, I just bought the Cedar Leaf Shawlette pattern so the yarn would have a project immediately -- and a Christmas gift would be added to my list! Love the bag as well!

The bag is beautiful and I love, love, love Woolie Silk. I already made one cedar leaf in the earth colorway and it turned out gorgeous. Don't know what I would do with the pink, but I'm sure I'd come up with something :)

Lani said...

It's such a pretty bag, and in my favorite color! The yarn is lovely!

Anonymous said...

It's a perfect shape! It looks like it would sit well and look good while being using as a portable project bag and plus it is big enough and small enough. Because I always pick COLOR in yarns, it might be useful to a neutral tone bag.

I have never met a bag I didn't like. My entire life is organized in various tote bags - several for knitting (with different UFO's in them), one with work clothes, one with choir music, one with viola music, one with lunch things and reading material for work, etc. Mostly they are just ubiquitous canvas bags or reusable shopping bags. This bag would be a real step up!

Please don't make be beg for this gorgeous bag and yarn! All I can say is WOW! (And, of course, please select me!)

Dani said...

Love the gorgeous details on the bag! It is beautiful. The yarn ain't half bad either! :)Thank you for the giveaway!

Francesca said...

One can NEVER have enough knitting bags, as I am always starting projects that need their own bags and carrying projects here and there.

Have made two other Cedar Leaf Shawlettes and this would be a wonderful color to make for a gift (unless I end up keeping it).

I would love the bag because the flowers on it remind me of crochet motifs! It's a beautiful fiber arts bag!
