noni prism bag and other cuteness

unfelted noni prism bag

In order to feel like I'm actually accomplishing something, I started knitting the noni prism bag. That's right, if you're tired of your existing projects the best plan is to start something new. At least with this one I feel like I'm making a lot of progress - this bag in it's pre-felting state is HUGE. I'm knitting two strands of Valley Yarns Stockbridge together on size 13's. I think I'm getting about 3 stitches to an inch. Look at it lying on the sofa there - threatening to take it over. I'm almost done with the knitting part - but there is lots and piles of finishing to do. Felting, putting in a zipper, making a lining and attaching handles. One step at a time - right?

I also picked up a copy of the Cute Book by Aranzi Aronzo this weekend. Can't wait to make one of the felt mascots inside. Look how cute! I've resisted the cuteness of the Japanese until now, but I think I need to put felt mascots on much of my clothing. Resistance is futile!

The colorwork on that bag is SO lovely! I really like that pattern. Those Noni bags are beauties. I need to keep my eye out for this one!

Aww, Japanese craft mags are a weakness for me! I have several that I just flip through. Wish I could read them :)
