Knit this unfelted bag today and carry it tonight. This is a lovely, small, 1-skein project that takes no time at all to knit and even less time to finish.
The pattern contains instructions for making this bag in three different yarn combinations: Milky Way for a dramatic sparkle; Spring Sunrise for a hand-painted bag with a softer glow; and for those of you who like an understated bag, a dark blue Silk & Merino blend that is deliciously soft and reminds me of cool Summer nights by the water.
