I bought some beautiful Berroco Poppy yarn to make a pullover and then didn't get around to knitting it for a long time (25 years).  By the time I finished the front, I realized there wouldn't be enough yarn to finish (must have shrunk  Wink, and there was no way to find any of the yarn anymore.   Angry

So, I made a purse.  I lined it with a scarf, stabilized with unbleached muslin, and gathered the top and bottom on wooden handles and sewed up the sides.

It's dark hot pink, fuschia, and the tufts of color make it go with everything.  I'm knitting a cabled scarf with the leftover yarn.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
