Knit this bag up for my sister's 23rd birthday.  The knitting itself took no time at all; it's the fabric lining that damn near killed me.  As illustrated in the photos below, hand-stitching?  So not my forte...

I used almost-but-not-quite four balls of Noro Kureyon in colorway #95.  Pattern from Handknit Holidays, a book I purchased for this pattern alone.

So cool in a retro kind of way. As a knitter, I would love that. Great colors choices inside and out. You have one lucky sister.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
