You came up with your own pattern after only a week and a half of knitting??? That is so cool!!! I like the stripes on it too!

Great job! You are going to love knitting! I couldn't even put my eye glass case in your little bag, but it is cute. I often wonder how all you younger ladies carry anything in those tiny little bags. I did a ton of pattern searching for a nice big bag just last night and everything is itty bitty! I have to carry half the world around with me ie, bandaids and hand wash cloths for the grandson, Advil, eyeglass cleaner, eye glass repair kit, pens, paper etc for hubby, etc etc. I would win on the old Let's Make a Deal show for sure if I was picked to have a particular item in my handbag. My husband says he gets a hernia picking it up...HAHA! He is such a funny funny guy!
Anyway, you did a great job on your first project!
