Lacy Diamond Purse

The past week has been filled with surprises - the biggest one being how popular Rust Goes Green (my reusable market bag pattern) has become. One of the crochet "free pattern" websites linked to it and my blog has been hopping! Today so far there has already been over 550 visitors. I'm used to 10-30 a day. This high volume has been going on for a few days and absolutely tickles me.

As I promised on Ravelry to the She Knits podcast forum group I have been writing up the directions for the little lace purse I knit for the wedding I just attended.

UPDATE (6/21/08): Here's a link to get the pattern as a PDF

Update (11/7/08) - I've taken the pattern off this post but you can click on the link above and get a PDF to download. The link takes you to Ravelry but you do not need to be a member to be able to download - although you REALLY should join!
