I Made a Gift for a Friend






Dante's Purse
Made For:  ?
Pattern:  My Own
Yarn:  Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Chunky in color #557 for base, Knit Picks Telemark in color Brass Heather for the i-cord.
Needles:  US 9 - I knit the base tightly to give it more stability
Fabric:  Fat Quarters from Joann Fabrics

I'm calling it Dante's Purse as nod to Project Spectrum.  The interior, after all is red and the color combo is fiery.

I love it. I hope it's for me. :-)

that is such a practical looking little bag! wonderful!

Wonderful...love it and it will be so useful!

Lovely! If you ever want to do a swap for some handmade soaps let me know :) I love all the things that you make. I'm currently knitting an Achillea and I love that it's easy to memorize and gives you such a beautiful result!! So really...no REALLY!!! If you want to swap sometime for soaps....I'd love it!

Beautiful! I'd love to make one myself! I hope you write up a pattern!

Very cute!

Love the interior fabric color you used. It's gives it an extra something.

You never cease to amaze me. Seriousl. What a darling purse/bag.

cute bag. the fabric is gorgeous!

Very pretty! I love this combination of colors, and that's a clever name, too :)

I think your friend is going to love it. This is such a cute bag (the colors--which are perfectly fantastic--aside), it cute and squat and looks like it wants to be filled with a little sock project. That is one lucky friend!

What a perfect little bag!

Wow, love that ochre and red together!

What a WONDERFUL bag! You are so creative!

It would be neat if you could do a tutorial/pattern for this! :)


great bag!! i love the name too... great job!!

As you already know, I just love it. The colors of the yarn and fabric go so well together!

As much as I love the project in it's entirety, the lining is really calling me.

Love it! Love the knitted icord through the fabric as a drawstring. It rocks!

That is a beautiful bag! You're a very good friend :-)

Too cute! How creative and talented you are.

What a great gift Idea! I love the contrast between the two fabrics--beautiful!

great little tote with such a creative name! those fabrics are perfect for PS!

Very cute, what a lucky friend you have.

That is so pretty. I've always been shy about adding material to my knits, but this might be the inspiration that I am looking for. Love the color combo . . . reminds me of really good Indian food.
