I finished these a while ago but never got around to posting! The brea bag was for my little sister's birthday, and the amulet was for mother's day, I bought some cool bath salts to put inside. The dreamswatch is mine.
I LOVED knitting the brea bag! It was my first project with real wool and cables. If I made it again, I think I would fuse some heavy interfacing to the lining fabric to give it a bit more body. I'm not sure if I like how it looks when it hangs.
I used the leftover silk I bought for dream swatch to make amulet, rather than sock yarn like it calls for. I think I used size 5 needles? So it's bigger, but it was just the right size for the little bag of bath salts.

Thanks. The dreamswatch was worth knitting only because the yarn was so yummy and the end result so cute and functional. To be honest, it was kind of a pain to actually knit. Those yarn over rows took a lot of work, especially at first. I did the bulk of it in the car while we were moving 900 miles away.
can you tell us the pattern for the amulet? I could probably make a reasonable facsimile but it is perfect for all my little scarps of handspun silk and cotton experiments and I would love to have the pattern.
