I adore that bag! It's very pretty
As a beginner knitter, I'm glad to say that I haven't gotten bit by the Noro bug yet!
One day my friend, one day.
LOL, I actually have not been knitting that long. This was my first time working with Noro and I had gotten 3 lonely sks on sale at my LYS for $6 each so I just had to get them. I have to say in all honesty that the only thing I enjoyed about working with this yarn was the color. I cannot imagine wearing it against my skin - it is really rough. I had to spit-felt it a few times as it just pulled apart while I was working with it. And, it had on average 2 knots per skein. So, eh, it's really overrated in my opinion. But, the colors are to die for.
I'm kinda on a SWTC Karaoke kick and like working with that much better. It's much softer.
