This little handbag was knitted with really great yarn, Classic Elite Waterspun, beautiful felted Merino wool. I really enjoyed knitting with it. It's very soft and sort of fuzzy looking because it's felted.
The pattern was really simple, from the Knitting for Dummies book. It was supposed to be knitted all in one color, all in garter stitch. I sort of made my own up as I went along. The front is creamy white, strips of stockinette and garter stitches. The back is garter stitch in a pretty sage green. The flap is sort of violet, seed stitch. The strap is the same violet, just stockinette that curled naturally to make a sort of tube-like string thingy. Ed picked out the little purple mouse button.
Let me just say that the individual pieces looked pretty good. I really only got into trouble with the sewing part.
