Hi! This is my first completed project post!  This is also my first bag.  I used Cream and Sugar cotton yarn, and I double stranded it.  I did it on size 10 circular needles.  It's inspired by the Chinese Charm bag from Snb, but I modified it a bit.

Here are the pics!





Feedback would be appreciated!!  Grin  There are more details about it on my blog.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Thank you for all the compliments!  Grin

It's variegated Sugar and Cream yarn.  I don't know if perfect stripes come out like in sock yarn, though.

WOW!  That's gorgeous!  I love the colors; this is the 2nd purse I have seen done in Sugar n Cream and I think I am going to have to get some. 

You remind me of an older version of my niece Erika.  She's 9 and is already selling drawings to her classmates for 50 cents each; I think it is only a matter of time before I see her on Craftster.  If we didn't live 900 miles apart I'd be teaching her and her sisters how to knit!

Thank you!! Sugar n Cream is definitely good for purses because it's pretty sturdy.  It just feels uncomfortable to my my hands when I'm knitting it  Roll Eyes !

Aww, she's a little saleswoman!  Cheesy  I'm sure she'd love to know how to knit so she can make some sweet moolah selling her knit things  Cheesy !
