Love this new little bag from Noni – Lipstick and Change. It’s just the right size for going out, and its cute little sparkly accents add just the right amount of bling to make you fell a bit dressed up.
It’s a super quick knit worked with a single strand of Shepherd’s Wool. I’m using a size 7 needle to get the pre-felting gauge of 20 stitches to four inches. I cast on the base of my bag and used it as my gauge swatch.
You don’t have to use DPNs to pick up, but it helps me pick up correctly and also allows me to get a good gauge measurement.
I’ve had it here at the counter in my kitchen, so I can knit it off and on – you know, while I’m cruising Ravelry, or Facebook, or just having my morning coffee. I’ve made quite a lot of progress in just a little bit of time. I’m making the medium and am almost finished with the body.
I think I’ll have the knitting done today and will felt it this evening. Loving this color – Raspberry!!!
