does anyone remember me posting how i was starting a knitted purse about a hundred years ago??? well, i got as far as buying the bamboo handles back in june and then the project just sat and gathered dust. after finishing my first slipper a couple of days ago (another project that sat in the corner unloved forever) i was feeling accomplished and like i could take on the world.
which leads me back to the knitted purse. i stayed up until 2:30 am last night because dammit, i wasn't going to put that purse down until it was finished.
and now it is!!
it is lumpy where it shouldn't be but i think it's because i didnt do so well when i sewed the handles on.
i lined it with some cute vintage material that was a sheet in it's former life. too bad i don't have a clue how to sew or line a purse. here's what the inside looks like anyway.
i'm still really proud because it's my first purse ever...knitted or otherwise!
on an unrelated note, i've obviously been asleep at the wheel for the last few days. i just realized today that tania has tagged me to list 5 of my idiosyncrasies. i have to think about this for a bit but will be back with that amusing info shortly...
