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 :)). 

You will love it because it's soft, warm, fluffy, lustrous, beautiful, and did I mention warm?

The size of this bag: 16" wide x 11" high (41cm x 28cm) (excluding the handle); oval bamboo handles 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (21 cm x 13cm).
Besides, I made a cotton lining with inside pocket for keys and wallet.
