Knit Gift Bag - Debbie Bliss Yarn

For purposes of scale, there is a votive candle inside. This was something I was experimenting with based on (and inspired by) the pattern in Joelle Hoverson's Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I knitted the main portion of the bag last night while watching Polar Express. I did the three-needle bind-off and i-cord this morning. Joelle Hoverson's pattern calls for Blue Sky Alpacas' Alpaca & Silk yarn (1 skein) -- after the holidays I'll choose one of the great new dark colors and make one. I used DPNs for my small bag, but when I make the larger one in the book, I'll invest in 16" circular needles.

Needles: US6 DPN's (Brittany Birch)
Yarn: Something Debbie Bliss in pale pink - perhaps cotton angora?

I've been wanting to make one of the bags for some time! It looks fun and beauitful.

so so cute! It looks soft and so beautiful-good job!

You don't have Denise interchangables yet? I'm suprised.

That looks really nice. Would take a so-so gift and kick it up a notch, I think.
