View Full Version : Purse and Scarf

I made this purse to my daughter (from the book 25 Bags to Knit). I don't know what I was thinking when I bought the yarn because I ended up with lots leftover. I think I doubled the amount needed because I was going to use double strands. Quite stupid really since a thinner yarn has more of it... :doh:
Anyway, I deicded to make a scarf instead of returning the leftover yarn.
My daughter loved them :D

Boy, I am sure she did love them - I know I would! That purse is so cute with the beading. I just love the yellow - it is such a happy color. Great projects! :waving:

That's a lot of seed stitch too! They both look great!

If that isn't the definition of a mother's love, I don't know what is! How else could you part with it???? I suppose you'll be allowed to borrow on occasion! Great job.

Thank you everyone! I appreciate your comments. They make me happy :D

Spooky, the bag is very very very easy to make. And you will finish it in no time! I even made another one (didn't finish the scarf yet :lol: )
