More for the gift pile

I seem to be hooked on knitting little gifts at the moment. These two little soap sacks are the latest. I got the pattern from the Holiday Mystery Gift group.



Both sacks are knitted with 6mm needles which makes it a really quick kit. I used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply cotton for the lilac one and Filatura Di Crosa Millefili Fine for the pink one. The soaps I bought at our local Sunday market. The stall stocked a wide range of deliciously perfumed handmade soaps. Now I need to whip up a couple more of these sacks.

Mandala progress: 9 more rows to go and then I can start the edging.
