Join the Tote Exchange

Along with three other gals, I am co-hosting a knit/crochet tote exchange. I hope you will join us. Sign-ups are due by April 14th so hurry over. Here's a link to the blog or send an email to to join us!

Cable Knit Purse

I completed the Knitpicks Cable Knit Purse (free pattern) last weekend. I used some chunky Cascad. It was a very quick knit and is lined with a pre-made tote bag which means very little finishing. I added a black satin ribbon and toggle button for trim. The beaded handle came from JoAnn's.

A note if you try this pattern: You must double the yarn. The pattern omits this important little tidbit.
