Stuff on My Desk: A Purse I Knitted

I love to knit.

You know what doesn't love me knitting?

My job and all the 500 million other things I have to do.

But once upon a time, I knitted (knitted? knit?) a lot.

The picture above is of one little project I did a few years ago. It's a tiny purse, knitted with some of that novelty "eyelash" yarn and some ribbon. It's hard to see, but there's a flap that folds over the top of the purse, sort of in a messenger bag style.

It was supposed to be something I could use to carry my cell phone and a credit card, just something tiny when I didn't need to carry everything in my giant briefcase/purse.

However. I've discovered that I pretty much never go anywhere with just my cell phone and a credit card.

And it's such a cute little purse, it was depressing me, just sitting sadly in my Closet Where Craft-y Projects Go to Die.

So now it's hanging in my cubicle, where it's all cute and yellow and is a conversation piece when people walk past on their way to the kitchenette. (My favorite question so far: "Why did you make that?" Um, so you could ask me about it? Weirdo.)
