Felted Purse

Hello Out there, I thought I would begin this with an experiment that turned out really well. I have been dying to felt something but the cost of wool has prohibited it. A few weeks ago I was in a thrift store (one of my weaknesses is thrift stores and yard sales) and found a large skien of Reynold icelandic wool Lopi ( a discontinued color) for only a dollar. I used this and some Lion Brand Landscapes Pastel Meadows to create a purse. I knitted in the round on size 11 needles. I cast on 80 stitches and knitted till it measure 8 1/2 inches. The design I used was just a whim! Here is the result!

I think I will run it through the wash again and see what happens.!
