Felted Purse Step 2

I finished the purse last night, a perversion of weird wool and fair isle and Sophie. Pictured here is the purse pre-felt. So if I do end up making a mashy pulp of a bag, you will have something to remember it by.

You know that clever idea I had to double the strands on the bottom of the bag? Well, if you choose to take that route, I am now legally bound to tell you that you should use the same size needles on the bottom and top. See that bulgy baggy bottom? Case closed.

Now for the ego-stroking. Here are the floats! No, it's not a parade, it's fair isle!

Well, all right, it's not so hot but I'm damned proud!

Now I'm off to the laundry room to take this bag down to size.

Love the pattern - would you be inclined to post it on your blog? Am also excited to see the finished article.
