A bag in two days.  Not bad, not bad at all.  Felted bags are SO easy.  It’s like knitting one big oversized hat.  It’s also what I consider to be “brainless” knitting.  A very satisfying project indeed.  The pattern calls for using worsted weight and holding two strands of this together.  I skipped that part and used bulky weight.  Came out great!

Made this bag for a friend.  Her 30th birthday is right around the corner.  I also plan on filling this with knitting goodies as she has expressed interest in learning how to knit.  So the plan is to teach her how when she comes down for a visit in a couple of weeks.  Hope she likes it!!
