I only have one FO today, but I am happy to report I have started the decreases to my knitted hat. I'm a little nervous about that part!
The FO I have to show you is the purse that I started just this week! Shocking, I know! It's such a great pattern (once you get through a few of the issues with how it is written), and now that I have completed my 3rd (and best) one, I can make it with my eyes closed practically. This one is a late Christmas present for my sister-in-law (my husband's brother's wife). She likes stuff that looks from the 40's-60's, and loves purses, so I hope she likes this one. She also loves tiki stuff, so I wanted to use bamboo handles. I originally thought I would go with the lighter ones, instead of black, but it clashed even more with the yarn, as it was a yellow wood color. I got the fabric for the lining several months ago, finding it in the remnants bin at Joann's. I love it, and am happy I have some left over to line something else with it. You can see in the picture (sorry it's dark), but it also has tan/gold flecks in it.
I'm still debating on using a ribbon for the bow. What do you think? Do you like it plain? I would have to run to Joann's (and avoid the yarn) to get something that matched, as nothing in my ribbon stash does. You may remember how the ribbon goes into the purse, but if not, here is the one I made for my sister for Christmas that has a ribbon.
