Steph Bag

I used Noro Kureyon in colorway 124, a skein of Galway worsted wool yarn in a deep magenta colorway (lost the tag, so I couldn't tell you the color), a skein of pinkish-red novelty fur made by the Fizz Collection in shade 16, size 10 1/2 needles US, and a pair of bamboo handles.

I managed to knit the bag in less than six hours; however, since I averaged 12-hour work days for the last two weeks, the six hours of knitting time stretched out over the course of the week. The simple felted bag seemed like more of a chore than it should have, and I ran out of time on the handle. I felt bad about having to skate out and purchase a ready-made handle.

But as it turned out, my neice loved the bag. So all ends well.
