Fair Isle Purse


I'm still not bored with the Fair Isle kick yet LOL. This design came from The Knitting Stitch Bible, called "Indian sari" on page 183. Because of the extra long stitches I put a lining in the purse, it's been awhile since I've sewn so I think it turned out pretty good, but I could use some practice :) The handle is a three peg i-cord and to close the seam at the bottom I picked up 42 stitches split them between two needles and used the Kitchener stitch (I sure like that stitch!) Sydney is going to love this, when she gets home from school I'll snap a picture of her holding it.
