Step three and four

This was made to be a Lonesome Skein project, but I added a couple of leftover colors to add some interest.
I wanted to show how a purse get made, from A to Z (A til AA). Knitted in Lambs Pride, needles US 15 (10 mm). Felted in the washing machine, and dried. I pull and stretch a bit, and in some cases, like here, I force it into a certain shape by putting something inside. Here I used a spaghetti jar, most times I use polyester filling to hold the shape under drying.

I added a few little "knots" for decor..
