So I've been lusting after the Spiral Scarf, and the Pentagon Yoke pullover, and I had a couple of Noro skeins in my stash, and wanted to make a purse with it...



and the other side :



Thanks for looking !

haha  Cheesy i actually thought it *was* a geode from the thumbnail!

very pretty and well-done.

does it have handles? or is it more of a clutchy change purse doodle?

I think it's going to remain in its clutchy form ! Noro is too fragile to make a proper handle and I have some fake suede for the lining, but it wouldn't look so good as a handle. Besides, I like it as it is.

Regarding the handle....if you ever decide you want to knit a handle....here is what I do to make handles when using Noro: 

I knit an i-cord the length I want and then thread 3-4 lengths of worsted weight through the center of the icord handle.   

I LOVE the use of the Noro for that pattern....!  I love the blue colorway....do you remember what color # it was?

It's colorway 138, but there's more brown and black than blue in each skein. Thanks for the tip on the handle !
