A little purse, a little pincushion...

This beautiful little pincushion came attached to a huge kilner jar of pistachios, a Christmas gift from the lovely Mrs Mary Martin. I think it was a Molly Makes design, but as usual, Mary made it impeccably. And the nuts are My Husband's favourites! Today I had a chance to use the pincushion as I came to make up a little purse I had knitted. It was from the Rown Winter Warmers book, but is basically 18 x 28cm of moss st (K1P1) with two rows of knit at the end to make a nice edge to the flap. You add some pretty fabric to line it, slip stitching into place and add a ribbon loop and button. It knitted up quite quickly and I plan to makemight make some more in finer wool (this one is in Rowan Big Wool) and in candy colours.
