Black Handbag

Did I tell you  that I used to knit a lot? Yes, when I lived in Russia, I was crazy about knitting. I made  all kinds of sweaters/jackets/vests for my mom, dad, brother, myself, my friends.... 
Now, living in hot Arizona with no snow, I do not need warm sweaters...
The other day, I found a black mohair cardigan in my closet. I knitted it in Russia and since then it has never been worn here. 
Well, I unraveled the cardigan and made a knitted casual bag (I was thinking about knitting a bag for a fortnight, and now my dream had to come true :)).
