What a lovely bag! I ordered it Thurs. night and got it Mon, and it is so pretty. I think the size is going to be just right--not too big or small. The fabrics are gorgeous-blue&gray pinstriping, taupe velvet trim, and pastel floral that's not washed out. Plus it is lined with the striped fabric.
I know I am going to use it a lot, it will be hard not to get the other colors too! (gifts?!)
MadelineTosh Vintage is really nice. The colors are beautiful and saturated. I had to order several colors to decide which one I wanted, they were all gorgeous! Nice hand, a little sheen, soft! I got the color denim to make the Creature Comfort Cardi by Madeline Tosh. Am loving it so far.
I love Fresco, it is so soft and the angora content is lovely. I am going to start a sweater in sugar blue, which isn't a babyish color. I consider it sophisticated. It has a nice, even hand, and a wonderful fabric, but if you're going to knit a large piece in stockinette go down in needle size.
Go for fresco!
