Sampler Drawstring Purse (3 hours)

Most knitters have one little skein of sock yarn sitting around. Instead of knitting one sock with it, start this ingenious, cute little purse. It has a little of everything: beads, eyelets, lace, slipped stitches and simple shaping. And what really frosts the cake is the lining. The “secret” lining tip is what makes this purse not just cute but practical—no sewing and no pens or knitting needles poking out through the knit stitches, plus the purse holds its shape! This is the perfect size for a lightweight purse or a small knitting project bag. Check the supplies list so you’re ready to roll.
