Vacation Knitting
Just returned from a 10 day trip to Utah. HAD A BLAST. Completed some small projects during breaks from sightseeing.

First is a pair of Flip Top Mittens, design by Laura Nelkin. Made with Schaefer yarn Lola.

Then I made a hat from the Inga pattern. I plan to start the Ingebor Sweater (Dale of Norway) as soon as my currentl project is done. The Inga hat uses the same design and allows you to swatch and make something useful at the same time. This hat is made with Daletta.

Last is the Berroco Lambe Cabled purse made with Lambs Pride Bulky in chocolate Brown.

Everything is beautiful! -- And so useful! Where did you get the handles for the purse? And, did you line it?

I got the purse handles online, can't remember exactly where. Just Google "purse handles" and a zillion places pop up. I did not line the purse, should have but it is for my daughter (who I was visiting) and I didn't have time. If I do this purse again I would line it.
