Felted and drying My first booga!
I was so excited to get this finished, I was felting at 5:30 AM this morning. Here is the bag on its box drying. I am giving it to my grandniece for a graduation present from high school filled with bath goodies, spa and other gift certificates. I think it is perfect for a teenager even an older one in this fun and funky color combo.

I would like to thank MoniDew again as she provided the pink felting yarn for the project as part of her yarn swap with me. Mona, hope you like how it turned out. I am going to use the other skein with white and make a candy striped one next!

I had never tried it because I thought the bag looked so cute it had to be difficult. What a whiz they are to make and they just look so great like they are much harder. I can't wait to start trying all the Noro yarns with them. I have two sisters, a dil, a dd and whomever else I can think of that will get them as gifts. Took me only two days to knit and felt this.

You really have to. They are incredibly easy and a fast knit up too.
