Counterpane Pouch

I found another project to distract me from those darn socks: The counterpane accessories pouch from Handknit Holidays. While I don't know if I have a use for such a bag, it sure looks impressive, doesn't it?

And it's all lies. Lies, I tell you. This little number took less than 5 hours and used up less than $3 of Bernat Satin Yarn (which is a great "costume jewelry" version of the recommended La Lana Bombyx Silk). The sheen of the Bernat Satin is great for this application and the gauge was right on. Plus it used up another odd ball (boy am I earning my new stash yarn or what?).

Now all I need is a zipper (oh and figure out how to actually install a zipper) and some cute fabric to line it with, and voila! Another day of Christmas sock procrastination complete! Yay!


  1. Cute!! I really have to get that book! :)

  2. That is a cute bag! And, since it is a shade of purple, I LOVE the colour (all shades of purple fit in this category) since it's my fav!

  3. I love it! I really want to make one of thse too and now I'll keep my eye open for that yarn. (or maybe look in my stash?).

  4. It's completely adorable. Nice work.
