I knit these bags up for some of my children's teachers. The tan on the left is in Patons SWS in "Natural Navy" (I think that one is my favorite), the middle two are in Caron Felt-It in "Evening Mist" and the one on the far right is Patons Classic Merino in "Regency." I based them off the

Special Companion Bag (http://www.knitkit.com/SpecialCompanion.htm)

but basically they are mini Boogas. For the SWS and PCM ones, I just did a single-crochet for the handles, the Felt-It ones have satin ribbon.

I also made two of these tiny sweaters using the

Miniature Sweater Ornament (http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/minisweater-pattern.shtm) pattern, in Lion Brand Magic Stripes in "Jelly Bean". I did it a bit differently than the pattern, it called for size 1 and 4 DPNs, but for some reason I don't have any 4s and used 3s instead. I also knit the sleeves in the round instead of flat and then seaming, and on the second one (on the tree), I did a different type of increase for the raglan than the pattern used and had a garter stitch hem instead of the K1P1. The hardest part was finding the correct sequence of color to make the sleeves match!

Here is the second one while in progress, with the body and opposite sleeve still on the needles, and the first sleeve on 3 DPNs! A lot of pointy ends!

All of your projects are just adorable. I happened to get to go to a larger town yesterday where there is a Michaels and I was looking at the Patons SWS and wondering how it would knit up. Thanks for sharing your projects and the details about the materials you used. Great job! I am wanting some of that Patons SWS now!
