I LOVE this bag! The colors are vibrant and the charts and instructions were easy to follow. I ended up sewing a simple cotton lining for it, and added a leather strap instead of the knitted one. My SIL loved it too, so I knitted her one with the leftover yarn! I don't remember the name, but I had the beautiful fall colors in my kit.
