Finished Purse



Yay!!! I finished it this past weekend! It ended up being about 8 inches tall, 10 inches wide, and 5 inches deep. Quite a bit smaller than the original size. The button is a vintage find. Yarn is Paton's Classic Merino. I used Dawn's Well Traveled Bag pattern again ( luv that pattern ) and just lengthened it.

Now maybe I'll have time to play with my new small gauge AJAL from Decor Accents ( my valentine's gift from Hubby, isn't he romantic)! Whoops; almost forgot that afghan I'm workin' on. Isela suggested that I just stay up longer to get in some play time, but that would only mean sleeping late. Oh the sacrifices!

Debi...I love that purse...is there a pattern for it? I'm a purse-aholic...it's gorgeous. Check out my blog for spaghetti earrings I crocheted...if I used blue food coloring they would have matched your purse.

I think it's only right that I inform you that I'm am lusting after your purse. Hehe :) No seriously though, that is the coolest, most "me" purse I've ever seen anyone make!

Thanks everybody!!!!

Lynn, you're such a nut!

Lucy, no apologies! It was my fault. I saw your comment and realized that I forgot the pattern link. Blogger was giving me grief, and wouldn't let me post a correction, or a comment to you. Anyways, thanks for the reminder!

Very pretty, I may try it. I have never felted, have you ever done this with the looms? I am new to knitting and not so sure how it may turn out. Thanks,
Carla
