Finished blue bag

Here is my second booga bag. It's from this pattern at blacksheep bags. I did 42 rounds in Lion Wool ocean blues then 15 more rounds in Lion Wool navy with 16" size 11 needles. I started on 7/4/06 and finished knitting on 7/16/06 but just got around to attatching the handles today. I hand stitched on some beaded trim (Jo-Ann craft essentials) with DMC pearl cotton color #807. I think maybe I should have glued the trim on instead of stitching it on. The bead ribbon seems a bit delicate. Now that it's done I think it's really cute. I may even make a third bag someday in KnitPicks Wool of The Andes in Violet and Hush. I'm guilty of already buying the yarn. I had said I never wanted to felt my knitting because it's basically destroying all of those knit stitches that took so long to make. Now I've made two felted bags and have plans for a third. I guess it's a bit addicting.
