My pattern in Knitty.com for spring


"Paper bag" has finally made it. I just love this bag and i've waited a long time to be able to show it.

Its made from 4 strands of Habu Textiles raw silk covered paper knitted together. The Audrey Hepburn styling was suggested by Amy Singer and works a treat with the bag. Charlie looking fab as always, wearing my great grandmother's evening gloves. I've had some lovely comments today. Thank you so much.
You can find the pattern at: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTpaperbag.html

I love the bag, but can you recommend an alternative yarn for this project? The yarn you used is very hard to find.
