I started this little beaded 'purse' at the Hitchin Stitchin' Workshop in November and am ready to parcel it up. The beads were pre-threaded before knitting the front in stocking stitch, using Rowan DK.
For the back, the button flap was knitted in moss stitch by picking up the stitches cast off at the end of the front section. The buttons are mother of pearl that complements the shiny silver beaded star.
Trusty Arthur (who has survived several bear-napping and bearacide attempts from Ron) models the hat I shall be wearing at the Red Hat Soc's Christmas Buffet 'Tea@2' this afternoon, where I shall be singing in the 'choir' with 3 other Red Hatters.
Quote for the Day
I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach. Scrooge
