This is my friend Debbie's Panes Bag. I felted it for her this week because she has a front-load washer and it's a "pane" to felt in those! (I have one too, but when we got it, I saved the old washer which is now my felting machine) Debbie is one of the BeeGees and we have such fun together. Deb used Lamb's Pride for her bag, and I just LOVE the color combo (of course, I did help her pick them out)

My third Panes bag...knit with heathery shades of Cascade yarn.

This is another bag I knit, this time using the final version of the pattern. You will notice it is taller (having more color repeats) and has a slightly bigger diameter. This bag is usually on display at the yarn store where I work.

This is my original bag that I knit as I was designing. The test knitters did their bags using this original pattern, but the other bags are knit with the final version of the pattern which is slightly bigger around, and also taller.

Panes done in classic black & gray. This wonderful version was done by Jane, a great friend, test knitter, and supporter of my efforts. Thanks for everything, Jane!

Panes by Deb. Love the colors in this one. Deb was one of the test knitters for my pattern. She used a couple different kinds of yarns for this one. It's a good bag for using up scraps! Nice job, Deb!

This is my sister Diane's Panes Bag. She used Galway Black for the main color, and the brights are Kool-Aid dyed Fisherman's wool. Check out the handles!!!

Kim's Panes Bag. Kim is a member of our BeeGees Knitting Group. She knit this lovely specimen in Lamb's Pride.

Miri's version of the Panes Bag. Miri is in our BeeGees Knitting Group. She used Cascade in shades of blues, purples and green for her bag. Love it!
