I'm having a hard time envisioning this. I think your directions make sense to me Ingrid, but a few more questions.
The bag is basically a rectangle, two long sides in my main color (I'm going to make it approx 12") and two very short sides in my contrast color(approx 2"). So obviously I can't carry my yarn from one contrast section to the next because that would waste a lot of yarn. So I'm thinking I will need to use two balls of contrast yarn, one for each side of the bag. Is this right??? And what about my main color? I'm thinking that I can knit up to the color change in my main color, then carry the yarn over that short section to the other side of main color....but then I'll have all these rows of loose yarn draped across on the inside of the bag, know what I mean???
Am I making ANY sense here?? :??
(By the way, I'm finding that knitting is very good for brain function -- it keeps me on my toes, especially since most of the rest of my day involves changing diapers, naps for the kids, playgrounds, etc......pretty no brainer stuff!!! :lol: )
