The Talker's Got a New Bag

My 7 year old daughter has been wanting to practice her knitting on big needles. She thought that would be easier to control than the size 9’s I started her on. So I took her to my yarn cabinet, hoping to sway her towards something bulky and cheap. She went right for the Cascade Magnum. It’s bulky, but it ain’t cheap! :) I had just a tiny bit left over from a previous knitting project so she set to work on her big needles (size 17's).

She knitted the whole thing herself with just a few questions here and there.Then for the finishing, she chose EVERYTHING–the lining fabric, the flower, the button–everything. And I must say, I think it’s absolutely adorable!!

It’s the perfect size for a (fake) cell phone and a lip gloss or 4 lip glosses. This is according to the proud creator of the purse. She LOVES it. :)

Is that a sweet little proud face or what?
