Hello everybody!

Here's a purse a made a little while ago.

And a mitten from Interweave knits. (I swear I've made the other one! I just don't have a picture. Wink)

Please comment!

I like them both!

Am curious about the purse handle though. How did you make it?
It looks soooo sturdy.
That is what has always scared me off of making a purse - because I could never figure out how to make the handles substantial enough. (The amount of "stuff" I carry in a handbag would soon wreck any knitted handle I've ever seen.)
The variations in the purse pattern are great. It looks like a stitch "sampler" bag!

As for the mitten(s) - I believe you (about them both being knit). Just wish I had them on my hands tonight. Brrrr!
That pattern is quite different - were they very difficult to knit?

Those mittens are really cool! Great job!

Thank you!

The handle is made out of icord with two strands of yarn which was surprisingly sturdy. I also made the bottom with two strands and I didn't need to line it, in fact it was so sturdy it could stand straight up while I was knitting it. I hope you know what I mean.  Undecided
I don't know if that would always work though, depending on the yarn.
It is pretty much a stitch sampler bag! I went through my stitch dictionary and tried lots of new things. It was fun.
The mittens weren't too hard. I believe next time I would pick up fewer stitches for the thumb part, it's a little too big.
