So I have a 10 year old neice who very much admired my booga bag. We also had a heavy discussion about her favorite colors. So I decided for Christmas to make her a felted tote bag in her favorite colors- you know for books, or going to grandmas, or keeping her own crafty things in. So I chose the Suki bag from Knitty.com. This thing is huge! If you want a big tote bag this is the one. The whole time I was knitting it it seemed as though I was knitting a skirt. So here are pictures of it pre-felted- measured 24" long. And blocking, it is 18" long. The instructions do say it is this big, but I just didn't picture it like this!!! I find this absolutely crazy. Oh, I used cascade 220 and Lion Brand Fun Fur for the trim.
For another neice I made a hat and mittens out of Lornas Laces Childs Play. They are so soft and pretty. The colors on the monitor don't do it justice.
