    "sophie bag" was just the name of the pattern. i found it on the internet and it's one of my favorites! it's really not that hard and it's great cause it only takes one ball of yarn (well, depending on the yardage). you just knit a rectangle for the bottom, pick up and knit around it and then knit on circular needles, while decreasing every 10 rows. then you knit 2 i-cords and twist them!

    Curious about the title as well. I like this bag because of it's simplicity. It looks hard to make, but it's not flashy. It's just plain yellow and cute; i love it!
