Pretty little purses

They're done, but not delivered. Two half-size Himalayan totes (from Interweave Knits), and one teeny-tiny quarter-size one, knit from recycled sari silk and lined with burgundy duck.

One side, all three.

The other side, all three.

The linings of the larger two have pockets.

A size perspective on the wee one.

The larger two are for teenagers Karishma and Nileshni; the bitty one is for Hannah, herself a bitty little girl. I think I have just enough of the sari silk yarn left for another quarter-size version; I may go ahead and knit it up and put it in my gift drawer for future use.

Oh, and I cast on Abrazo. I'm ready to switch to the bigger needles (size 15!) and start the cables. To cable in grey, or not in grey; that is the question!

Feeling a bit more settled at . . .

They're so sweet! I'll bet their new owners will be very pleased with them :o)

Your bags are beautiful! The colors are wonderful. You can undo your sweater and use the yarn to make more of them - the perfect use for sari silk.
