Plugging along

I managed to finish the striping sequence and bag body on my FMB this weekend. So far the bag measures roughly 40" circumference on the bottom and 15" in height. I'm sure I'll finish the straps this week in time for our vacation where I'll be felting this bag and the Booga Bag I made previously in Mango Moon Wooly in the Grape multi.

And I'm slowly working on my Kyoto (7" out of 13" for the back so far) and my NSSC (2" more for the raglan increases before I check to see if I can stop and do the armhole increases before continuing the body). Once I finish the FMB however, I'll need to find something in a wool or more giving yarn to alternate between these two. Either that or do some small projects in between, like one more Petal bib in my leftover KP Shine Sport in Butter and a couple more Ugg booties just to finish off my Berroco suede stash.

huh. I was thinking about using Berroco Suede to make a purse: kinda woven leathery lookin. You think that will work? How is it to work with? Your FMB looks just gorgeous- I do love the stripeing!

Berroco Suede is actually nice and easy to knit with. I've already made 2 pairs of Ugg booties (pic in my June? achived post maybe) and they were quick to make.

Berroco's way different than Lion Brand's Suede btw as it's thinner, softer and no squeaking while you knit.
