Knitted Purse

I made this geometric purse with 100% wool yarn. I really like the bold colors and my fun button.
It's lined with a little piece of jersey knit fabric that I sewed up and inserted into the pouch. I didn't sew it in or anything, I just placed it inside. Works perfectly!
My favorite part is the back. I tried a colorful, two-tone tribal pattern for the back! For those of you who don't knit, this means I knitted with two yarns--held two in my hand, one working yarn and on free yarn, and then switched them to alternate the colors. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be--getting the tension right is a little difficult at first, but it was very easy and I'm  going to try it again on a bigger project.
I hope to perfect these and sale them in my shop!

Wow, I don't knit at all, so especially with the pattern, that looks like quite an impressive project to me! And the yellow and black together are so striking.
