Knit handbags at Target

One of these days I am so going to get hauled off to Target Jail for taking pictures inside the store. Of course that will give me something to bond over with my neighbors. Hah... I said bond! I'm already thinking like a criminal.

Does your Target have this display of cute knitted purses? I saw them over the weekend at the store on Sepulveda, just north of Burbank Blvd. in Sherman Oaks.

They're cute, sure, but mostly I was frothing because this is good news for knitters if Target is out there carrying knit handbags! Maybe this is a sign of good things to come, folks demanding all sorts of knit items. More demand means more knitting. (Ok, yes, I am not totally braindead and I do realize these bags were machine knit, most likely, but still! Let a girl dream!)

These are lined, which I'm guessing helps keep their shape. And they aren't pricey -- $14.99 each.

Doesn't that last bag look just like the one Elisha Cuthbert is wearing in her delightful Go Fug Yourself pic?
