Christmas Roses

Pattern: Christmas Rose Bag from Handknit Holidays
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky in Mulberry and Victorian Pink (2 skeins of each total for the two bags)
Needles: US9 16" Inox circulars and US8 Clover dpns
Modifications: The yarn I chose is larger than the yarn called for in the pattern. Other than that I didn't make any changes.
Comments: This is a fun, fast project. I can see making a bunch of these bags out of scraps hanging out in my stash, even making mini-bags with sock yarn scraps. I'd like to try to Evergreen bag motif next time.
