Quick Knit Gift Bag

Stumped for the perfect going-away gift for a close friend, I'd already made the standard mixed CD for her roadtrip full of good tunes by which to remember me, but needed something to put the CD in...

How's this for a quick gift bag? I started it around 11 AM and finished it after 4 PM. During which I still fit in all things being a mom, lunch, laundry, etc. I am tempted to really start making these to sell...

This was the cable couture bag pattern knit with Blizzard yarn- part alpaca, part acrylic and I don't think I'd use it again. I loved the softness, but it's much too hairy.

Sassy Little Handbag

Just finished this morning! This was such a fun, quick project. Can't wait to start on the next one... I think I'll scope out my closet and Goodwill for interesting purse handles I can salvage.

Cable Couture Bag

I wanted to take a break from sweater knitting and cast on this bag last night- it knits up luxuriously and quickly! I am ready to fold in half and close up the sides, then add my handles!!

Yarn is Blue Sky Bulky hand dyes, needles are addi Turbo 24" circular size US13.

Starlet Sweater Progress

I'm working on this sweater with more frequency and it's coming along nicely. I really like knitting with this yarn- it's soft on my fingers! It's just been one of those projects I go to in between other knitting projects and that means it might have to go to my niece Abby and I'll knit something new for Starlet. Oh well.
