Hobo Bag & Tank

Thanks to the generous patterns given on Delicious Stitches site:

I was able to make this adorable Hobo bag and this really nice take top that I wear pretty regularly. The patterns were super easy to read and inspired me to make some alterations and write some patterns of my own. ^_^ Gotta love when knit happens.

And here's the tank, which she called "Pretty in Pink Tank Top" but I used Simply Soft's Shadow Yarn instead. I didn't heed the gauge or really listen to the needle size, hehe, but it came out pretty good and was incredibly easy to knit up, I think it took me only a weekend or so. If I made it again and used the same yarn I'd make it smaller as since I've washed it it seems to have gotten baggier... that might also have something to do with the lack of blocking I do :P.
