hand purse for swap partner

October 9, 2008 , , , , , ,

I could finish a knitted purse for my swap partner in just two days.

THe purse is really simple to knit, it’s a cable purse with circular bamboo handles. I also added a lining for the bag as well. Moreover, I also used the magnetic closure for the bag, it looks more professional… 😛

I like this pattern with the beautiful Manos wool, the yarn shows the cable patterns perfectly. 

I was actually knitted another cable bag for her, however I chose the wrong yarn (Debbie Bliss Ralto) , it’s too soft and the bag wasn’t sturdy enough even though i added lining inside the bag.

So, I gave that up and remained  4 days for me to make a new one for her.

Luckily, I could find a faster /easier pattern to meet the deadline. 

And I am ready to mail it to her by tomorrow. 🙂

I hope she will love all the goodies with this purse. 🙂

Very Nice! With your new sewing hobbie you are having, you can add lining to the purse yourself!
You should carry one around because you can show off two of your talents – knitting and sewing! !
