Put The Lime In The Coconut...

Well, who said you never finish an old WIP? This one has been in stasis since last December. I don't know why, all that was left was to line and crochet the handle tabs. Call me moody.

The label for the cording is long lost, but this was some hand-dyed stuff I picked up at my LYS. There's enough left over to make at least 5 more ~ LOL. Anyway, I thought the colors screamed tropical summer and it just seemed like the right time to finish it. It came out a wee bit smaller than if I'd used worsted weight and I had to drop the hook size down one in order for the stitches to look nice. So... this will be my "grab and run" purse ;)

I finally feel like I'm out of my crochet rut now ~ bring on the next one!
