Little purses are fun to make and to wear. They allow you to experiment with yarns,
stitches and embellishments. They are fast and portable and forgiving projects. There is
a lot of wiggle room in knitting a purse. It is hard to make one the wrong size. And
best of all, little purses are a gift that gets used.
This summer I have been thinking a lot about little purses. I am a part of a
neighborhood walking group. Now that we have all shed our sweatshirts and jackets; we
start our walks by checking out who has pockets. Or a handy little purse.
Get your needles ready. Here’s a pattern for your very own handy little purse. And
since we all know that "little" is a relative concept, you can make this
"little" purse with Lion Cotton or make it even "littler" by
knitting it in Magic Stripes yarn.
For those of you decide to use Magic Stripes, I have included a pattern for toe-less,
heel-less socks to be worn with clogs, sandals or even flip flops.
