My best friend bought me three yummy balls of Noro Kureyon for my birthday, and I totally love it, but I'm not sure what to do with it. I cannot do another scarf  Tongue - I was thinking about a felted bag but I don't want it to be too small....
any thoughts would be appreciated!

3 balls would make a good sized felted bag.  I use it frequently for that.  If you use 10 1/2 needles it shrinks about 2 inches around and 1 or so in height.  You can make the booga bag (http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html) or a variation of that.  Just Google free felted bag patterns and you'll come up with lots of ideas.

Awesome, thanks!! Cheesy
I have a couple other felted bag patterns, I just haven't worked with the Noro before and wasn't sure how far it would get me.

There are a couple of scarves that would go great with Noro.

I've done this pattern with Noro: http://www.magknits.com/warm05/patterns/rib.htm
here is a link to the one I did: http://flickr.com/photos/39549049@N00/38335134/in/set-72057594072532466/

This pattern would probably work too: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTdanica.html
