On a recent and quick turn-around trip to San Diego, I knitted most of my first 'to be felted purse' using Lion Wool. Once home, I finished the purse. Then, I realized that the pattern (a Berroco free pattern, "Jasperuvia") made no mention of purse straps and so I improvised. I knitted three 4-stitch i-cords and braided them prior to washing, leaving tails at each end to facilitate a creative attachment. Pictures of the final product to be forthcoming.
