Well, today (12th) is my birthday! yay! But it's not what i want to say.

The RTTBHW: i FINALLY found a 100% wool yarn here in brazil. I know it sounds strange, but since it's very cold here (insert big dose of sarcasm here), the max i've seen is a blend of 60-70% acrylic with wool.

But then i checked the tapestry yarn and found out they're 100% wool. At morning i'm gonna search on the stores for it because i wanna do a knitting bag (or a regular bag). I think this crocheted pattern from Lion's Brand is really cool: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60396.html . I didn't find a knitted felted purse that i like yet.

Happy Birthday!! I'm glad you were able to find some wool - let the fun begin!!

I was looking on knitty.com - they have a few fun felted bags. Check out this link:

I love the lion brand one you listed - super cute!! I hate to tell you, but my favorite felted bag pattern is one I purchased at my LYS. Here it is:

She only sells wholesale, but you might be able to contact her and see if she will work something out for you. Good luck!!
