Cashmere knit purse

Cashmere knit fabric, cut into one continuous strip for knitting, size 13 cable needle, rib stitch, lined with China silk, suede button closure.

I had a blast making this purse! The fabric is a very luxurious cashmere knit, a scrap that I got from a clothing designer a couple years ago. The strip is less than a half inch wide, and I think that was the key to it being a very flexible but sturdy fabric. The lining gives it the perfect body. I gave it to my sister for her birthday last week and she's enjoying it.
