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.

    Great job! I’ve added you to the gallery, thanks for knitting it up!

    I have seen the PIF on people’s blogs, and I’d love to do it but as awful as it sounds, I just don’t have time right now! I don’t think it would be fair of me to join if I can’t get the stuff done.

    I would love one of your bags 🙂 but then I would have to tell you where to send it and then you would know who I am 🙂

    I’m having the same problem with the PIF on my blog as well! Only one person has decided to get a handmade gift from me! I am getting such great compliments back about some of my projects for my contest (like my gourds) that I thought I’d get a taker. No such luck! So if you can round up more than one…send them over to me!

    Cool bag by the way…I like the shortness of it!
