Jumping Bag

Warning: I'm being silly today.
Why? Because I'm in a great mood. The sun is out after a LONG night of thunderstorms, Team USA just advanced to the next round in the World Cup, and I've finished knitting my yoga bag!

I wanted to take a photo of me with the bag pre-felting, so you can see just how big it is. It measures approximately 48" from end-to-end (which seemed like for-e-ver when I was knitting). As you can see from the photos, I got goofier and goofier. I'm just so excited to start the felting process!
I'm trying REALLY hard to time a jump. It took several tries.


And, of course, here are the close-ups of the bag. I was a big unsure of the multi-colored yarn. It looked a little too 80's rainbow pastel on the skein, but it's really quite beautiful knit into the bag. And yes, in case you're wondering about the color palette, Stephen DID request pink. It will go along with his pink bike and pink shirts. He knows what he likes! :)

Once I gather my nerves I'm gonna felt this baby. I just don't want to ruin it! Since this is my first knitting project, and I've been working on it daily for about 7 weeks, I'd hate for it not to work. I'll post more photos once it finally happens!
