Mother's day gift, completed well in advance...woot!

http://www.lisaknitstoo.com/images/cabled_purse.jpg

Pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, and I substituted Nature Spun Sport for the Koigu Premium Merino called for in the pattern because my LYS didn't have the KPM and I didn't feel like waiting for it to come in the mail.   Cheesy

Did you have to put a liner in it? I love the color.

Actually, the way the pattern works is that you first knit the mock cable portion from a chart, in the round (the pattern is on both sides) and then you do a turning round and continue on knitting in stockinette for the liner, and then three needle bind off the stockinette, turn the lining part to the inside, and seam up the bottom of the cabled part.

So yes, it's lined. Smiley  It really helps with the whole firmness aspect.

Oh Wow! That is a great idea because I hate sewing in liners. I just got that book the other day so now I have the pattern to try it. Thanks!

The hardest part of the whole thing was finding the tiny 12" #3 circular needles. 

I think I'd like to make another one in another color, this time using the koigu, and incorporate some beads into it, too.

Yeah, I'm sure they would, but I'd really recommend gettting the circulars.  You could always try it and see with the DPNs...  Smiley

I also would recommend the tiny circulars. I've seen people with big hands and with small hands knit with them very easily. I got mine from this online seller for only $4.50:

8" circulars:

12" circulars:

The needles are listed in Japanese sizes. There is a Japanese-American needle conversion chart here:

Size 3 in the US is size 4 in Japan, as you will see in the chart.

Here's the cabled purse I made from LMKG using handspun sockweight yarn:

That sounds terrifying.
