mandy's candy bag

here is my "mandy's candy bag" for nh knitting mama's contest. i was hoping that it would be big enough to be used as a sock bag but it's not so i may rework the numbers. it is very cute. you still have time to knit one up and enter her contest. deadline is sept 3rd.

i've almost finished writing up the third pattern for blue moon fiber arts. now to knit the mates for two of the patterns.

on the disappointing side, summer of socks may cancel the design contest because there are not enough entries. i will be major bummed if it is. i guess i can always try submitting to knitty or magknits. it takes a lot of time to write a pattern. it's not fair (whine, whine...)

ok, now i feel better.

That's a really cool bag! I like it!

What actually is summer of socks? Is it for new sock designs? I've got one, but I didn't know anything about SOS.

Good luck with your sock patterns!

Thanks for knitting up the bag! I'm putting your link on my gallery, and of course your entries are in.

Oh no! I'm sorry. Hopefully there are some last minute designers out there and they will get their patterns in!

Cute bag! I love your designs; they are so fantastic! Summer of socks would be mean to cancel their contest after so many people worked so hard already!
