Yes I need another Felted Bag

I have begun yet another felted bag. Why is it that these bags are so addicting? When I first started knitting I actually thought that felted bags were ugly. They were rough and scratchy and why would anyone in their right mind spend a bunch of time knitting just to shrink all that effort? That is still a question I have no answer for but I have been sucked in to the world of felting. I am now trying the Hyphen Boy Modular Backpack based on Judy's amazing results. I think it's absolutely gorgeous and it is definitely a challenge from the usual felted bag. I have chosen the easy route of using just 3 colors rather than the 16 called for in the pattern! Instead of having 8 different combinations I'm going with alternating rows of blue and pink with a multicolored Noro Kureyon as the contrasting stripes. The funny thing is that I chose the exact same color of Noro as Judy did! Next posting will be some progress pictures!

I'll be following your progress with this bag; I am tempted to make one myself! Do you know the best place to get this pattern sent to Australia?

Those colors look pretty, Allison. I can't wait to see your progress. You're my guinea pig - I don't know if I'm up for that pattern. It scares me!
