View Full Version : FO: Irish Hiking purse
09-09-2006, 09:26 PM
So I was working on the scarf when I realize the next day was my cousin's birthday lunch with the 'girls' I hadn't even knit her anything yet...and I KNEW I wouldn't be able to finish the scarf before lunch. So I turned it into a purse.
She's going to pick out a big bead or something and I'm going to make a join in the middle for it.
She LOVED it!! I love knitting for her because she is so sweet and actually uses the things I make :)

Great idea! :cheering:
The yarn reminds me of lemon chiffon...yummy!

I was thinking of doing the same with a similar scarf! I love yours! That color is divine!

*must resist temptation*
I just cast on for the Irish Hiking Scarf tonight. Fabulous idea but I'm determined to keep this a scarf. I'm cheating, though, and doing it on size 10 needles. (I love my Denise needles!) So far so good! It's such a soothing pattern!

Now that's what I call being resourceful! Great idea! :thumbsup:

Great idea! She'll be able to get year-round use out of it too, so it's probably more practicle than a scarf in the long run.

Umm...I was in the middle of my scarf and the yarn ran out, so I had to join another complimentary color! But seeing this makes me want to frog it down to purse size and make one of these - LOVE it! :heart:
Can't beat that KH'er creativity in a pinch! :cheering:
