I must say, I'm very tempted... and I haven't done any swaps for a while! I think I'll wait until it's nearer the end of sign ups. I've got quite a lot of stuff on so I'll have to see how it's all going. But I'll keep checking back!

Can I ask...would anybody even be interested in a knitted purse?  It would be really fun to make a cool purse with intricate cables...but is this more of a sewn, functional, workhorse bag swap?

I know I for one have a cable knitted purse on my wist!   Grin  At least I think it's considered cabled, it's celtic knots... anyway I would love just about anything with cables on it, personally  Wink 
I don't think there are any restricitons on how the purse is made as long as it's a functional purse, right Feelix?

EDIT: HAHA!!!  I just checked to make sure the purse was in fact on my wist, and it wasn't but it was a fave on my profile (so I wisted it), anyway, turns out the one I was talking about was a Superhooker original!!!   Cheesy
