Amulet Bag Fun

I'm teaching how to make this amulet bag at Double Ewe in early June so I made up a shop sample this weekend. I've made them before but I had forgotten how much fun they are to knit. The weight of the beads makes the bag feel so nice. The pattern is on the Rainey sister's blog and is very well written. One thing though. If you're going to knit with black DMC perle cotton 8 you sure need good eyes, a magnifying glass or daylight! My next one will be white!!

In other news, my daughter Amy went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival last Saturday and she's going to guest blog about it! Stay tuned.
