Noni bags & a newbie

Hi everyone! I live in the L.A. area and am a newbie. I just purchasd Nora’s Noni “two versions of two evening bags” The front cover shows the black bag bottom with the black handles and the multiple purple flowers. First of all, the colors that they say to buy is a dark purple and the flowers on the bag look fusia. I was wondering about that and also I was wondering if the instructions that say using a double strand means how it sounds? So I use 2 balls of yarn? Sounds odd.

thank you! me_me_me

Yes, using a double strand means that you are knitting with two strands together the whole time. The pattern will take this into account though and the amount of yarn it says you need includes the extra for double stranding.

As far as the colour of the flowers, you can do any colour you want!!! If you want a more fushia colour, go with it! That’s the beauty of knitting, whatever you want to do, you can do!

Good luck! :muah:

Thank you for your response. I appreciate it. I will have to just go for it.
