Well, being out of work again has me finishing various projects, and starting new ones.
For example,

Booga Bags Booga Bags

Two simpe bags, one made from Noro Kureyon (color 152) and the other from Karaoke (color 303 -- Purplexed). They were knit according to the Booga Bag pattern, and then fulled in the washing machine.
Unfulled bags Unfulled bags

The two knit bags, before fulling.




Some of you might remember me working on the green bag at Con.Txt -- it took about a day to do the body of the bag, plus a few more hours for the i-cord. I waited until I had the purple bag finished before fulling them both.

Karaoke fulls *very* fast and hard compared to Noro Kureyon. That surprised me, since it is 50% wool and 50% soy silk and Noro Kureyon is 100% wool. It also finished slightly smaller, even though I knit the Karaoke on size 10 needles, and the Kureyon on size 8s.

Oh wow, those are sexy! That's a really great use for Noro, too. Hmmm. I think I should go to the yarn store again. (Despite the fact that I've been twice in the past week already.

They're cute and easy. As long as you know how to pick-up stitches and knit in the round, they're also relatively fast.

And you can always do with more yarn...

How many skeins of Noro did you use?
