I'm learning how to knit cables because I have never attempted them before. I knitted the purse without a cable needle.

Yarn: Wool Ease (I think) -- the blue color- I got that at a garage sale for a quarter Smiley and some orange "tutu" yarn. The purse looks kind of Mediterranean, I think.

-the button is a gold colored rose shank button.
-The cables are made by slipping three, knitting three, taking the stitches off, putting the knitted stitches back on, and then knitting the slipped stitches.

-2 cables running throughout the purse, and the front is tapered off by k2 together on every other stitch.

No pattern.

I also decided to make this planner cozy with some of the yarn I bought a few weeks ago. It was amusing to knit with 5 alternating colors.

No pattern

Yarn: Red Heart super saver
-Light Fuchsia
-Frosty Green
-Cherry Red

and Red Heart classic
-Off White

Thanks for looking.

Both nice!
I love the little Cozy! Cheesy
That would be a great idea for my travel journal... it gets so beat up in my backpack.

Making stuff is good for you!
