FO... no really, FO

I have completed the fulled project that I am using to try colour knitting in preparation for the Strikke-along. Can someone who has done colour knitting let me know if my floats were good - please. The pattern is the Lindy Bag by Amy Swenson. I used 3 balls of Ístex Álafoss Lopi (2 purple, 1 pink). It was super quick and I loved it.
Finished:


And pre-felting (and pre handles):






Coming soon:
I have finished a Jayne Cobb's Cunning Hat (Firefly). I have a picture of the hat but I'd rather have one that is on Cory's head rather than on the floor.

I love the bag. Making felted bags is my absolute favorite!

I don't have your email address so I thought I would leave a thank you on our blog for the nice comment you left on mine!

Nothing makes me happier than hearing that I made somebody laugh! SERIOUSLY, that makes my day! I hope you like the others as much as the Yarn Harlot Story...I that that was pretty good :-)

Your tension looks perfect, which is really the hard part, so you're good for more stranded color.

I can't tell exactly from the photo, but it looks like you might be twisting the yarns around when you switch from color to color. You don't have to do that, and it's too much bother. Just run one on top and one below, and you're fine.

Maybe I should post a photo of floats on my blog. Hmmm.

Yay! Finished projects!! Whoohoo!

Ohmygod woman! You are talented. I feel so guilty over all the barbie scarves I started knitting and abandoned as a kid... so I got rid of the barbie.

We love the colourful dish cloth - it is a happy colour but washing dishes still isn't my fave past time.

That's gorgeous--you do such pretty stuff! (Although felting still baffles me--not the how, but the how did anyone think it up...)

Very nice!

I don't think they "thought" it up, Amy. I'll bet it just happened.
