Well, I got it done in time! I stayed up late Friday night and got up early Saturday morning to finish, but it was worth it! I learned that rushing is never a good idea. I probably should have known that already, and by the time I finished the last stitch on Saturday I felt like throwing the clutch out the window. I was tired, and I was sick of rushing. Once I had a chance to relax a bit I started to really love the outcome. A little sparkle can add a little pep to your step. It was the perfect accessory for the Christmas party. It has plenty of room to hold my cell phone, car keys, lip gloss, gum and $. This project introduced me to the world of beaded knitting and I'm really inspired by all of the possibilities. Pattern coming soon!
