Grandma's Purse

Isn't this the coolest purse? My sisters gave it to me today. It was knit by my paternal Grandmother in the summer of 1977, as best we can pinpoint. (My Mom claims I get my creativity from her.) She made one for each of her granddaughters, and today I finally got mine! I love the stitch pattern that looks like butterflies, but I have no idea what the pattern is called. As my sisters predicted, one of my first comments was to wonder how I could reproduce it on the loom. I'll definitely work on that!

The yarn is a rough nylon texture. I can't wait to make this with some of today's fun bulky yarns.

Just found the website after looking up loom knitting online. (I'm a novice knitter with a son who is interested in the craft.) After reading all your entries and looking at all your beautiful crafts, I'm hooked! I've got to get to a store a buy a set of these looms! I'm thinking I might have Christmas gifts all sewn - er knitted - up! Keep up the great work! I'll definitly be back to see what new items you knitted up!
