I'm making a drawstring bag!
It's a simple pattern that's really cool! You can use silk or cotton yarn! (I used cotton, Lion Brand Cotton, Candy Colors)! I'm still working on it though! The circular needles are pretty easy to use!:happydancing:

More of a fashion bag, but I could take to places like the market. By the way, i'm only 12!

It seems most people agree that cotton yarn is the best for this project!

I used Lion Chenille Thick and Quick to make a bag for my not SIL. I couldn't find a black velvet one for her RenFair pirate costume, so decided to make one. I did it on size 8s so the stitches would be snug.

The name of the pattern is Give it a Whirl Bag! I found it in Creative Knitting Magazine. (It was from last summer!)

That was a rhetorical question... Meaning one in which there's no answer required as it's self explanatory.
