One of my favorite things in life is giving handmade gifts to my loved ones. But my commitment to making most gifts tends to present one of two dilemmas: I finish early and can’t contain my excitement (hence treating the gift like a hot potato), or I completely space the date, freak out, and end up spending the entire twenty-four hours before the celebration creating something.
This coin purse/card holder is the product of one of those freak outs. It is now one of my “go to” designs in these moments. As it is obviously designed for a female, my next challenge will be to design its male counterpart.
I knit this with a 4-ply yarn on straight needles.
