sock purse

Another present for Christmas, somewhat of an experiment. This, I hope, will become a small change purse for Miss Six. It's actually the same colour blue as the scarf below, just taken in a different light.

The curved thing you can see is the purse frame and I'm not sure how well I will be able to put the two together. We'll see.

The pattern is a mosaic slip stitch which makes a very firm fabric.Two rows of the blue, then change colour. Knit 2 with new colour, slip 1. Two rows like this, then repeat the four rows. Easy and effective.

It took some experimenting to find what I think is the right number of stitches for the frame. This was done on 3.25 mm needles with 21 stitches.
