What's on your hook? Mary's purse

Mary brought this unusual project to the last meeting and let us know a little bit about it.

This is a UFO (unfinished object) that Mary "inherited" from someone she knows. What we see in this picture is all that she has - the start of the project - there isn't even a pattern to go with it!

Mary was a little concerned about the asymmetrical top closure but several of us who saw the UFO in person thought it was a nice touch and would make the finished purse more interesting.

Mary has identified a free pattern on Ravelry (Crocheted Lace Clutch by Haley Pierson-Cox) that has a very similar stitch pattern to the completed part of the purse. She'll use that pattern to help complete this project.

Mary, we can't wait to see this when it's finished - it will be a lovely dressy bag!
