Not much, just a cute little purse I made as a birthday present for my friend Anna:


Pattern: Brea Bag, from Berrocco
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers, color 9413
Needles: My favorite Bryspun #9 24-inch circulars

This was a pretty fun and quick pattern to do, and I think she likes it!

Thanks for looking  Smiley

Very nice.  I like the strap you used, and the button.  Did you line it, or leave it unlined?   Smiley

Wow, it may be "simple" but it sure is beautiful! Is there a link to the pattern?

Thanks!

How beautiful, and classy too.  I like this pattern so much I went to look it up.  Here it is for anyone else interested.  http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/brea/brea.html

Thank you for the comments!
inle_rah: I did not line it. I was debating on whether or not to, and then I just decided no because it was really densely knit, so there weren't really any holes for things to fall out of.

When I was looking for a strap, I couldn't find anything to my liking, so I ended up making one out of ribbon and two rings.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ribbon strap.  It adds an elegant touch to such awesome cable work!  You did awesome, and have inspired me to make my own Brea (even though this has been on my list for-ev-er)
