Knit one!

Last week I showed some knits that I made for the Child Christmas Appeal over on Annie 'The Felt Fairy's" blog. I had made one mistake which I found when I was sewing them up and invited my followers to spot it with a prezzie for the first correct answer.
Carol of "Carols Ditty Kingdom" came up with the error and in her comment said she didn't want a prize but if she was right would I make another woolly for the boxes for her. So I downloaded another pattern and here is the finished item. A girls Chunky wool bag.



This has now been sent off to Annie from Carol.

They were quite expensive really, but still the cheapest I could find. Maybe next time we should club together with a few folk and order more to get better value
