First Purse!

So I decided that since the Filatura di Crosa Simpatico is a little too brassy to use for a scarf I'm making it into a tote bag (or maybe a purse, it hasnt decided what it wants to be). I'm roughly following the instructions for the "Felted Marsupial Tote" in "Stich 'N Bitch". It will be color-blocked black, green, navy and orange. I havent decided what to do for the top yet: either handles like in the pattern, or a messenger-bag style flap with a shoulder strap.
Strangely, I can't find any information only about Filatura di Crosa's yarn Simpatico! It's like it never existed! very odd.

I wandered into my LYS on Tuesday and found this interesting pearly "100% Wood Pulp Lenpur" yarn for Y315/ball so I bought 4 and am planning a lacy scarf or shawl in varigated pink with varigated green edgeing. I also found this really cool paper yarn by Noro that would make fantastic little handbags..
So would the wonderfully weird yarn from www.pluckyfluff.com

Hi there RedThread. I was searching on the search engines for purse and handbag related websites using the keyword monogrammed purse and found your very nice page with the title First Purse!. I am looking for ideas on how to improve my own site using different keywords and was really amazed how easy it was to find your site using the keyword monogrammed purse. Perhaps we could do a link exchange at some point. Gotta run. Thanks for your time.
