Pumpkin Purse




So, I took a class in making a lined purseat the new Suss Designs shop in Lower Manhattan , and this was the result. I used a Katia super bulky wool in pumpkin, Lamb's Pride bulky in brown (two strands together), and a thin brown mohair and orange ribbon carried along with each, for continuity. Size 15 needles, plain old sticknette stitch. Add brown wooden handles and a coordinating corduroy lining and -- voila -- my first purse. I gave it to my friend Kathy for her birthday; I think she liked it, since she carried it that night to her birthday party.

That's fabulous! Lovely colours - I've always been scared of trying a bag that needed a lining (can't sew for toffee!)

Wow, I love it! The colours look really effective.
