Striped Messenger Bag

In keeping with the Noro addiction theme, I went back to our LYS and traded in my remaining balls of Noro for the skirt for 4 more balls of Noro Kureyon for a messenger bag. I had to add a contrast color. This bag will be felted when complete. I’ve really knit on this exclusively since finishing the skirt, and I am enjoying it. The plain stockinette stripes just don’t get old, and provide me with a wonderful mindless knit. I’ve now knit the front of the bag, and am working on the bottom.

This one will be another to add to my list of “knitting dangerously in 2011.” It will include felting, which I have not been very good at so far, as well as a zipper, and possibly a fabric lining. (Hey Mom, any fabric in Grandma’s stash that might work with these colors?)
