Malabrigo October Stockpile Design Challenge

the Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravelry is hosting a series of events for October Stockpile. One of the events is a design challenge. The challenge is to come up with a pattern that uses just one skein of their highly variegated yarn. Of course you could knit these patterns with any of their yarns (I love them all!) But they are trying to feature some of the highly variegated colors that are so popular, but seem to be underrepresented in patterns. So, here's what I'm working on. It's an envelope bag/e-reader. Here you can see I stole my husband's kindle for the photos. The bag is knit completely in one piece, with no seaming! Boy, do I really hate seaming. The bag is knit from top to bottom, and then the sides are picked up. It has a magnetic snap closure and a hook & eye closure on the sides, so that you can completely open it or use it as a bag. Instead of trying to explain it maybe I should just post some pictures eh?

Anyways, I'm currently in the testing phase. If you'd like to test knit this for me please let me know! Otherwise, I'll keep you posted on what happens next!
