This is my finished product. Sure it looks nothing like the picture on Lion Brand Yarn, but isn’t art all about interpretation of the instructions? I absolutely love the yarn I used for the strap. The beads were an utter bitch to put on and I feel fearful that wild college parties may cause them to fall off and explode. But I left implicit instructions to NOT use it as a beer purse.
As I was taking pictures of the purse yesterday, Jax (my son) decided that he wanted to grab the purse and run around with it. He’s such a silly kid. If there any accessories lying around, he will put them on. He slips on my headbands, sunglasses and grabs a purse and will teeter totter around the house like a movie star. I’m feeling as if I should knit him a little messenger bag that he can carry around. In fact, I think I’ll put that on my list of things to knit.
Anyhow, this is the best picture I have of the purse! Keep a lookout in the next couple of days for updates on my newest project, the little slippers from Knitty.com!
