This is the first cabled item that I knitted and also one of the first projects that I made. I made this purse a few years ago, when I was just starting to branch out from knitting scarves. This purse was given to my best friend for her birthday. I chose black so it would complement different outfits and turquoise as an accent because it is her favorite color.
The lining was a little difficult for me to do because I had never sewn anything like that before and I’m certainly not an expert seamstress! However, after a bit of fiddling I was able to work it out. I really love the cables on this purse and the way that they criss-cross and intertwine. My best friend loved the purse too- she’s so great to knit things for because she is so proud of what I make =)
