This must be a record!

I'm posting again! And so soon!

I wanted to share another recent finish--a little knit purse decorated with flowers. The knit flowers are for a class I'll be teaching this summer from Nicky Epstein's book, Knitted Flowers. In this case, I chose to make just a few varieties of flowers. I think my favorite is the rose. I love the pattern and especially liked using it with the yarn, Lamb's Pride Worsted, in two-tone pink. The other two flowers were made using Berroco Comfort and I added some buttons for their centers. There are a lot of other lovely flower patterns in this book that I will be trying out this summer. Definitely a fun and fast project!


The bag was really just a means to display the flowers, but I loved knitting it! I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK (1 ball) and the pattern came from the book, Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders. It was easy to follow and knit up in no time.

The purse turned out beautifully!
The flowers are so pretty. It should be a very enjoyable class project.
