I haven't made that purse (it's way cute though!), but if you want to use something other than Lamb's Pride, just pick any bulky weight 100% wool yarn and you should be fine.

Buttonhole Bag
Hi kitkat!

I've never felted anything either, but this bag is SOOO CUTE I think I'll have to add it to my project list. Thanks for the link to the pattern! I never thought of knitting a purse, I've always stuck to sweaters and afghans.

I LOVE this site - lot's of new ideas!

I love that bag. I am going to have to make that soon!! I have used Lamb's Pride and I liked working with it and I also like the variety of colors - at least in one of my LYS there are a lot of choices. Someone mentioned Cascade 220 and that is good too. Wow, got to go find some new yarn and make that bag!!

That is the purse I knitted, out of that yarn, w/something else mixed in I can't remember the name of, that I have not yet felted!!! It is a gift for someone, but I am a big chicken! When I knit mine, I used a dusty plum color for the main part, and then where a stripe should be, I mixed in the other w/the plum for contrast. The other yarn (I would not really call it yarn) is that stuff that is kind of netty w/every few squares filled in and the colors in it are deep purple, avocado green and creme.

One of these days it will be felted!

pat.
