Knit 1, Purl 2

I have some posts that I've got to get done in the next few days... I'm coloring like crazy and have to get things onto my blog. But today, I've got a different kind of project to show you.. something I just completed.

Side A

Side B

This purse was custom-made for a customer who specified these colors in particular (red, sage, magenta, purples, tangerine, etc). I always try to take a picture before sending them off so I can share them with you. It's a combination of knitting, crocheting, some needlework and done in wool, mohair, silks, bamboo, some synthetics and blends of various fibers.. some are even jeweled, sparkly and very unusual. It's fully lined and has two deep side pockets (and I can't sew to save my life!).

I get comments everywhere I go when I carry mine... one woman wanted to buy the one I was carrying!!

One of these days I'll have them back up on my Etsy shop as soon as I can build up more inventory. I seem to be selling these as fast as I can make them (if 50+ hours to make one is fast??).

Thanks for looking everyone!
Enjoy your day.. and be safe in all you do.
