It’s been a while, but I finally found some time to work on another project using the Pocket Knitter. Using Simply Soft Party in Black Sparkle and Snow Sparkle, I made this little purselet. Great for storing a couple of personal items for your evening on the town, holding your cell phone, or even just a great little gift for a little girl!
