Another Finished Bag

Maybe Stacey is right.... bags just might be my thing. They seem to be quick and mindless when you really need it. For this one I chose to use JoAnne's Sensations Kashmira. It's spongy and squishy to the touch and was strange but nice to fondle while knitting it up. The colors are bright and summery. So much different from the other wools that I've felted with.
I couldn't help but wonder if it would really felt. It didn't have the normal loose fibers that look like they would easily grab on to it's neighbors. But it turned out better than I could imagine! It's a bit thinner felt than Patons' wool and I really dig it. It's going to be great to tote around this spring and summer!
For those of you on Ravelry, feel free to check out the details there. This also satisfies another check off of my Mission Possible list. That's 4 out of 12. Not so bad for 3 months so far. I guess I'm ahead of the game a bit.

You are right, this is the weirdest feeling yarn! It feels like stringy sponges (I know there is no such thing but...). I love knitting something with big needles again. I have been using size 0's and 1's on booties and socks so much that I feel like I am knitting with baseball bats! I just love the colors and can't wait until mine is done! :) Thanks for the idea!
