Jean Yarn

I decided to get a move on with the jean purse I want to make. So I started knitting it up on thursday. It was too narrow, so I ripped back and started again on friday. As of this morning, it looks like this:

I think another inch or so (which works out to about 2 more rounds) I think I will be binding off. Then I need to add the jean waistband at the top and line it. That will probably take me 6 months or so at my normal speed....

The texture is really interesting.


And garter:

I knit the bottom as a square and picked up stitches around the edge to continue knitting it in the round.
