I started this little beaded 'purse' at the Hitchin Stitchin' Workshop in November and am ready to parcel it up. The beads were pre-threaded before knitting the front in stocking stitch, using Rowan DK. For the back, the button flap was knitted in moss stitch by picking up the stitches cast off at the end of the front section. The buttons are mother of pearl that complements the shiny silver beaded star.
Trusty Arthur models the hat I shall be wearing at the Red Hat Soc's Christmas Buffet tomorrow, where I shall be singing in the 'choir' with 3 other Red Hatters.
