I wanted to show off a purse I made with one skein of my hand dyed yarn. I know many people wonder what can they make with just one skein of a yarn. This is the yarn I used. It is a 100% wool, heavy worsted weight.
Here are more skeins of this yarn in different colors.
I started by knitting a rectangle, and then picked up stitches around the edges. I knit in the round until the top edge, and knit the handle straps back and forth. The purse then got to go through the wash a couple times to full it. After that I attached the magnetic closure and sewed the straps on the handles! Ta da!
