Wow, it seems pretty lonely in this challenge so far.  Here is my entry.  A purse...big surprise for me - I seem to knit a lot of purses.  My daughter has already claimed this.

Very simple, esentially a large rectangle in the required stitch pattern.  A stockingknit 'flap' with button hole and two 1 x 1 ribbed sides with a 'triangular' shape for width.  I lined it with some recycled fleece.

It's a beautiful purse! 

I'm hoping the lack of entries is because everyone is frantically working right up to the time limit, like snipers on Ebay. Cheesy

Great purse.  I never would have thought 'purse' when I saw the challenge stitch, but it works really well.

Lothruin is right- I'm knitting away on my entry and crossing my fingers that it will be ready in time.

What a good idea.  I have been grumbling about my current bag for classes, so I might have to knit one like that to take its place.

Thanks for all the great comments guys!  I wasn't so sure the stitch would be all that appropriate for a purse either.   If it weren't lined it wouldn't be.

Actually I really like the variegated yarn and that stitch, bright but cool! Did you line the purse??? Is the yarn hand dyed? (just because the yarn is so bright I thought you might have dyed it)
