I've been absent for a while. My 35th class reunion is next year, and I've already started working on it. See, our town has an annual celebration and most classes having reunions schedule them for that weekend, so plans need to start really early before everything gets booked up (learned that lesson the last time when the planning got dumped in my lap in October and the reunion was the following June - tried booking a venue, and none was to be had. ARGH!!!) Anyway, I digress.
Our school colors were orange and black, and at a clearance sale shortly after our last reunion I picked up a bunch of orange and black Super Saver yarn (yeah, I know, most of you are saying "yuck", but I was going for cost effectiveness). What I'd like to do is use it to knit orange and black goodie bags to hand out to classmates with a little gift or two inside.
Does anyone know of a pattern that is really simple, knit so the bag is round rather than rectangular, doesn't use dpns (I've never used them - circs I can deal with), and is pretty small? I've looked all over the place, and can't find a pattern that looks like I can handle it.
Any help would be appreciated!!!
Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
