Another purse...

Not too much to say today. I was working on my Project Spectrum postcard swap and finishing that up. Sometimes I think too much on what I'm going to do rather than just doing it. I thought and thought about how I wanted to design the card, but instead I just pulled out all my stamps and stickers and what nots and just did it. It turned out nothing like I designed in my mind but I liked it! Can't show you a pic just yet till I'm sure my swap buddy has it in her hands...but I will show you soon so don't worry!
What I will show you tonight is a picture of another purse I knitted. My son's gal pal liked the other purse I knitted (see a few posts back) but she wanted it smaller. Actually it could only be a half sheet of paper in size...(crazy school regulations!) Anyway, this is what I came up with.

It turned out pretty cute and was very quick to knit (and you all know I'm a beginner knitter!) I used 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft Quick in Autumn Red with #15 Knitting Needles. I think I cast on about 20-25 then just knitted one side, purled the other (it's all I know how to do at this point). The yarn was very very soft also. I lined it and got the cute tortise (sp) shell handles at JoAnn's. Added a nice button and used an elastic hair tie for the loop. Not bad eh?
Well, that's about it for tonight....I'm in the mood to crochet so I'm going to head to bed, turn on Nancy Grace and work on my Shawl swap.....that is turning out really cute (can't tell you about that either yet....shhhhh!) Should be done very soon though!
Okay, gang, till tomorrow....hasta luego!

Love the purse. I can not knit at all. I have tried but just can not do it. I am going to try again. Such a good job for someone who gave it up and did crochet then started again right?

Very cute. I've yet to knit anything more functional than a scarf, but I'm working on it. :)
