Knitted Gifts are Fun!

From one of my favorite books, One Skein, comes these two purses. The green clutch is for my oldest niece. It is knit of Misti Alpca hand painted yarn, machine washed and air dried to felt or full. The color becomes variegated in the washing. The buttons are from my collection and my mother's collection.

The drawstring purse, also from One Skein, is for the younger niece. The yarn is a mixture of wool and acrylic, and is knit in the round making it very easy. I hope they like these little gifts of love!

I love how these turned out! I know she will love the purse!

A few years back, knitting became a simple craft that became a passion. From scarves to much more complicated patterns, knitting is a way to decompress after a day at work, a way to express my creative side, and a way to give part of myself through knitted gifts. I hope you enjoy this blog!
