Her name was Lola...

she was a show bag. With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there. She would merengue and do the the cha-cha...

May I introduce you to my new super fabulous knitting bag. Her name is Lola Laguna. My daughter named her because we agree that she is so pretty and girly we had to give her a name. Laguna is the style name of this Namaste bag so we felt it should be included but we call her Lola for short. She is made of the softest leatherette material and her color is divine. She also holds a boat load of stuff, some of which I'll share tomorow.

"One Love"

One Love, One Heart
Let's get together and feel alright!
-Bob Marley

Pattern: My Hat of Choice - Soulemama
Yarn: Pancake and Lulu - Merino Twist in Crocus

The hat was made for the Pancake and Lulu One Skein Challenge.
This is not a colorway I'd normally pick, but the yarn was incredibly soft and I really enjoyed knitting with it. The colors remind me of Bob Marley, and the pattern is one of my favorite for a spring/summer hat.
