Quasi-FO

Well, now that school had started back up I'm afraid that I won't be able to knit as much. In order to try and counter this and other things, I've devised a plan. Each day I'm going to make a little goal chart that will include a goal, even if it's really tiny, in each category of home, personal, and knitting. Today my goals are to remove my laundry from my bathroom floor (home), look presentable at school (personal), and try my damnedest to finish one of my grandpa's socks. Other than that, I present you with one of my latest endeavors, a Noni bag.

This fits in with my earlier goal of stash busting. I even was able to incorporate some ultra crappy Fun Fur. I still need to trim down this big flower a bit.

I noticed that I didn't put anything on the bag for scale post-felting, so having the phone there pre-felting really serves no purpose. Oh well. Here she is about a day out of the wash.

I really like it. A lot of the times when I've made felted bags in the past, they haven't come out exactly as I'd pictired or they turn out to be something I really don't think I'll use. I think this bag is very chic. At least for a felted bag. I'm already making another smaller version with the very first Cascade 220 I ever bought. Oh, btw... all the yarn in this bag/flower is 220. I don't know the particular colorways. Sorry.
Now all I have to do is pick out handles, pick out/purchase fabric, learn how to sew in a lining and do so.

Isn't this the bag that you were searching for a pattern for last week? I forget how fast you knit!
It looks great!
