Hey Everyone. Well, I am extremely new to this site, so please bear with me. I wanted to show everyone the tiny purse I knitted my best friend for her birthday last month. I found a free pattern for it, a great yarn, and went to town. Also, it was my first attempt at knitting, period. I used my little how-to-knit-and-crochet book and different how-to-knit websites to teach myself how to knit. I am so proud of myself! I am currently working on the same purse, only a bigger variation, with the same exact yarn (I loved it so much!). It turned out much smaller than I expected, but my best friend doesn't like big purses, so it actually worked out pretty good. I haven't posted enough times to be allowed to post my actual pictures, so you can view them here:

Here's a close-up of the stitches:

Anyway,I hope you all enjoyed it! If you have any other free & easy knitting patterns you'd like to pass on, I'd love to see them! Have a great day!  Smiley

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

rely a bit too heavily on alcohol and irony.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

And my first knitting project was a lousy scarf with a few dropped stitches.  You are a fabulous learner and did a great job.

wow! I hope my first knitting project is as successful (I'm currently just trying to learn the stitches... knit a little, rip it out, knit a little, rip it out... Tongue)

The colors are great, like cotton candy  Cheesy

Wow that's great for your first time!  I never made anything but rectangles for years!  Your friend is so lucky.

I would love to do a personal swap!

(And I would trade anything I own plus a part of my soul, heck all of my soul, for some homespun yarn)
