Kittin' 4 Nickles

I found out quick that knitting can be expensive, BUT yarns that are cheap because they're ugly or thin and be incredibly cheap. The yarns that people think are ugly on the spool or in the skein are sometimes extraoridarily lovely knitted.

First Bag

This is my first attempt at knitting a bag, it's small and very simple with an i-cord drawstring. I had considerable trouble with the bottom and had considerable help including my instructors Graciela (http://gracielandcrafts.typepad.com/my_weblog/), Susan (http://memoirsyarnaholic.blogspot.com) and Crystal (http://crystalkini.blogspot.com/). My bag is very VERY simple and nothing compared to the beauty of these ladies work so don't think that i can knit anything that they did. My fondest Thanx ladies. The bag was created from no patern and on the red ITA loom with 4-ply red heart acrylic verigate yarn called Wild Berry. I knitted this for my mother, but I'm finding use of it now...LOL Again I HATE the pic...I CANNOT get enough light in here! 05-06
