I knit up a bag, purse, clutch whatever you would like to call it. I used the wool roving I got in January from my Woolgatherings fiber subscription to make the purse. I just cast 30 stitches on my size 8 knitting needles. Knit 5 rows in stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl the next). Then knit a row instead of purling to create a hem. I continued working in stockinette stitch until the desired length. Knit another row instead of purling creating another hem. Knit 5 more stockinette rows then binding off. I folded the bag in half and stitched up the sides. I then added a lining and a magnetic clasp closure to the inside of the bag. I secured the handles by wrapping some yarn around them and through the first row of stitches. I love how it turned out. Now I have to decide if I want to keep it or sell it.
