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.
It’s based on this movie with Helen Hunt and Kevin Spacey in it called ‘Pay It Forward’. With all of the things happening to me these days, I thought it was exactly what I needed, something entirely positive.
How many of you out there have had a chance to watch it? I myself have not. So I guess I need to do so. But anyway this is what the PIF Exchange is all about……
(Copied from Megan’s blog, which was copied from Pony Knits blog which was copied from…..you get the picture) “Here is how it works! I’ll send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange! I don’t know what that gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week…LOL… but you will receive it within 365 days, that’s a promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog…”
So the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog, I can’t wait to see who you are! I have some great treats in store for you all, just you wait and see!
Update:As of 3:55 p.m. 8-14-2007 there is still one spot left. Doesn’t anyone want to recieve a handmade gift from me?
