OK, so I am starting some Christmas books a little late. This one probably won't even get to the recipient for a couple of weeks what with drying time and shipping time. I love working with heavier weight yarn (or two strands of worsted weight held together) and large needles. It just makes the project knit up so quickly! I started this purse in the afternoon yesterday and am finished with it (other than weaving in the ends, sewing the bottom together and felting it) this afternoon.
I am going to be starting on the next purse (exact same pattern but different colors) this evening. The sun is shining so I will be riding the horse while the weather is good. Perhaps there will be time to walk the dog, too?
