Knit Purse

While I was teaching my class the other day, a student's purse really caught my eye.
Look at this wonderful purse that was first knitted and then felted down.

Love the colors.
She said she just "made up the design", and that the purse was easy to make.
The bag was soft to the touch and sturdy enough that it didn't even need a lining.

Little bits of ribbon were intertwined amidst the yarns.
Learning to knit has been on my Wish List for years. sigh...someday.

Very, very nice! Often it is the items we design ourselves that we like the best. She did a gorgeous job on this one.

These pocketbooks are really easy to make...you use circular needles, and just knit round and round, and round. The hardest part is getting it to felt! It's important to use a pure wool, so it will felt. I use a decorative yarn along with the wool, to achieve a pattern. Wish I was there, I'd show you how to make one! I line them, lots of pockets!

A perfect bag for year round but I'd love it in the winter. Great colors.
