I started making the new purse. The front is mostly knitted now, it's lime, turquoise and yellow variegated Lily Sugar n Cream, the inset pocket is lime Sugar n Cream. Picked up a light blue canvas belt in an army surplus store to use as the strap. Pictures when the front is done. I'm keeping notes to write up as a pattern.
It seems a little unfair to carry the parts of the new purse around in the old purse, but I did get some knitting done in Castlewood State Park before the baptisms got done.
