Stopping with the Bagstoppers

It’s a very good pattern. It makes a very functional finished object. It’s going to be quite a while before I knit another one.

After knitting one of these for myself and one for a Christmas gift, I knew I had one more I wanted to knit. I knocked this one out last weekend, and I’m glad it’s finished.

The recipient of this bag likes pink and purple. I liked this grosgrain ribbon, but it’s a 1” ribbon. Both of my previous bags use 1.5” grosgrain ribbon, and I think I like that better. It just feels more substantial.

But at least it’s finished. One more Christmas present and one more hank of stash crossed off the list. Hooray!

I can see how these might get just a little boring after a while. ;-) Like this combination of colors, though.

They knit up so fast...although I can see where three would get tiresome.
