It doesn't really look like Kureyon to me any more. The striping seems a little bit lost. I do like the variegated color though and I imagine that I'll like it even more after the bag is felted. I'm expecting to finish the knitting of this bag over the Thanksgiving weekend coming up. I plan on spending a good part of the weekend knitting.
I'm hoping to get it finished so I can figure out lining and handles and get all the supplies so I can finish the bag up over my Christmas vacation. I'm going to have a couple weeks off work again. Plus my mom is coming to visit, so I'll have an expert seamstress in house!
I also got a little jump start on my Portland Sweater using the Noro Sakura. It's more of the same, just rounds and rounds of garter stitch. The good thing about this one is that I'm really excited about the colors and texture of the yarn all knit up. It is going to be an excellent light weight sweater, great for spring. It has such a different feel than the Kureyon I'm using for the bag. I'm hoping to make some more progress on this sweater this weekend
It's kind of nuts to be knitting this now. I knit a 100% worsted weight wool sweater in July; now I'm knitting this light weight sweater at the beginning of winter. Well, maybe I'll get myself straightened out eventually.
