Mandy’s Candy Bag

Mandy's Candy bag

Yes finally some knitting content.

Mandy’s Candy Bag 

knit in Peaches N Cream Stripes Colorway :Natural Stripes

on size 5 DPNs.

This bag was fun and easy to knit. I made mine a little shorter than most of the others I seen knit up. I was going for a Native American look. It kind of reminds me of the clay pots you might see food or water carried in. The name of the actual pot escapes me at this moment.

There is a contest going on for this bag so be sure to stop by NH Knitting Mama’s blog and check it out. You have until September 3rd to knit one of your own to be entered.

And on a final note. I had no idea it would be so hard to give away something made by me for free. I have joinned in the Pay it Forward exchange going around see earlier post. I thought for sure 3 people would jump at the chance to recieve a free gift but so far only two people have taken me up on the offer. Who’d a thunk it. I can’t even give away one of my hand sewn  bags.Yep you guessed it I’ve decided to make up 3 of my Ruby June hand bags and give them away as my Pay it Forward gifts.Well I guess it will only be 2 bags since I can’t get anyone else to take it off my hands.

Dish Rag Tag

I’m finally getting around to posting about the Dish Rag Tag box. Yeah I know it’s a little late but hey it’s better late than never.

As team captain I received the box 1st. It arrived on Saturday August 4th. Lucky 13 boxInside of course was the Dish Cloth, 2 skiens of Peaches -n- Cream cotton and a recipe for Yummy Shortbread and finnally two heart shaped cookie cutters. Thanks bunches Emily.

I knit furiously on Sunday so my dish cloth would be ready to be on it’s way to my next team member Karen in VA on Monday the 6th. Unfortunately I forgot to get a picture of the dish cloth I knit before I sent the box on it’s way.

This has been a fun swap and race and even if we don’t win I have had fun doing it and keeping track of the boxes progress. It is now on it’s way to Aleta (aka Ally B). Through this swap I have met some pretty awesome Ladies. Rock on Lucky 13.
