Knitted Beaded Purse...

  1. Your little purse is adorable, but it must be really small. I work my purses on 0000 needles. I'm having a Halloween contest/giveaway on my blog right now and one of the prizes is an orange bead knitted change purse.

  2. You must have the patience of a saint. It is wonderful, but must be so very precise.

  3. Awesome work Julia! I love working "small"...but daresay that'd be challenging! What size are No 16 needles in mm size?
