I had recently taught a pal how to knit and she took to it like a fish to water.(after an hour or two of cursing Wink ) Since then she's made about fourteen scarves in garter stitch and can crank them out like none other.
But I've been noticing my friend was carrying her projects around in plastic bags! (yuch!!!) And so I decided to knit this:

It is made out of Lionsbrand Homespun in a lovely baby blue. It was very easy, done in stockinette stitch save for the strap which was done in garter. I lined it with fabric and sewed a little pocket inside for any tapestry needles or cableing needles if she decides to be bold and go further.

And here is the back.

It seemed a little small but it is an ideal fit for a new knitter. The pattern is my own, a modest attempt at designing. Most of my projects end up having some type of quirk that make them unique and this bag is one of them.
I worked on it on and off between classwork for about two months and took it with me on spring break to work on. Ironically, I knitted this infront of my friend. She knew that the piece was for her but she had no clue what. And it drove her crazy!!! Needless to say everyone (including her mother) knew what it was and she did not. Her guesses ranged from a sweater to a hat.

Needless to say, Maddie adored it. This is her above showing it off for the camera.
Sorry about the sideways pics. I'm not sure how to make them turn sideways.

I ran through the snow with Clark Gable and he sang me a song about cheese!
