Thursday afternoon while blog hopping I found the cutest little halloween bag: The Felted Candy Corn Bag. It was love at first sight. I ran downstairs and to my luck I had exactly the colors needed for the pattern. Then, I sat down and was ready to begin knitting when I read the instructions a little closer...it was crochet :(. My heart fell as my crocheting abilities are almost nonexistent
This felted bag was inspired by one that my friend Sharon always totes her knitting in and the woven baskets commonly seen in French markets. I bought a few skeins of Cold Harbour Aran weight yarn during a visit to the mill -- it's actually a working wool museum -- early this year and created this shallow basket bag.
