Whoo Hoo! Presents!
I did a bag trade with my childhood friend, Bethany McKenzie, who lives in Canada. I sent her a crochet bag, and she sent me a knitted one. And the one she made is AWESOME!
Here it is, with a lovely felted flower closure.
The bottom of the bag is done in the same contrasting yarn as the flower.
And inside the bag were these unexpected gifts! A nature photography greeting card that was made by her brother in law; a knitting book by a Canadian author; a yummy skein of sock yarn that was hand dyed by her supervisor at the library; and a set of handmade double pointed needles that were made by a local artisan who my friend knows. WOW.
