A Beautiful Bag from the Sari Silk Yarn from Hell

I started this bag 4 months ago with much fear and trepidation. Uncarded Sari Silk yarn is some of the awfullest stuff I have ever worked with...coarse silk ribbons from the saris, silk thrums and occasional straw spun together. This yarn is tough on the fingers, overspun and frustrating to work with.

AND contribute to my mental anguish....I made two of these bags!!

I tell myself, I'm not making anymore of these stupid bags...and everytime I go somewhere with one these bags, someone asks "do you make them to sell?"

 Well I'm selling both bags this fall at Kentuck. They'll be lined and come with a deer antler button closure. Will I be making more??......not anytime soon.
