Plum Bag

I'm actually using this project. I knit it for the Ravelympics in one week. The bag is made of Paton's Soy Wool Stripes and Solids using one skein each of Plum stripe and solid colorways. The yarn was an impulse buy because I liked the color and wanted to try a soy blend yarn. I made a bag because the yarn is far too scratchy to go agains bare skin. It feels like Lincoln wool. The bag is lightly felted by hand. I'm am using this as a knitting bag. It needs a lining to keep knitting needles from protruding. Otherwise, I love it. The dimentions are 12"tall, 7"wide.

The bag is adorable! I need to get over my whole "newbie" mental block before I attempt one though. Cute!
