Mandy's Candy Bag...Completed!

I finished knitting Mandy's Candy Bag! This little bag has a lot of possibilites. I actually made mine a little larger by going up a needle size. I do this a lot anyway because I knit so tight but I was hoping it would be a little bigger so it could be used as a little purse. I can see this little girl wanting to carry it with her. I'm going to make a little handle to attach to the sides so she can carry it over her shoulder. I used the new Sugar & Cream striping yarn in Baby Stripes. I love the striping and will soon cast on another one (or two) with more of the striping yarn.

Thanks to the designer for this cute pattern. Don't forget she has a contest going on so check out her nice blog... http://nhknittingmama.blogspot.com/

Your candy bag looks so cute, Melanie! Adding astrap to make a purse is a great idea! :-)

Thanks Tea and Isabelle for your nice comments. I love the Sugar&Cream striping yarn...must get more. And the strap was a thought because this girl is such a little diva, she will have to carry it along.
