More yummy yarn!

I received my order from Yarnmarket today. I really, really wanted it to be here before the 3 day weekend, but I didn't order it in time. Oh, well.

Berroco Foliage in a pink/black combo for the B4 bag

RYC Cashsoft DK for a lacy scarf

SWTC Karoake in Purplexed for a clapotis

The crochet bag I started yesterday is coming along nicely. I've finished the bottom and started working up the sides in the round. I've done popcorns all the way around, which actually came out even without counting, proving that I can count, as long as I don't, you know, count. I'm thinking of adding some beading a little bit farther up, but maybe not.

On Saturday, I crocheted the rounds for the circle cosmetic case in Interweave's One Skein book. I used Noro Sakura in color #4, which came out stunning. I'm going to buy the zipper and finish it tonight.

I'm still working on my Touch Me scarf. It's slow going, but it's coming out beautifully. I was originally going to felt it, but it's so beautiful as it is, I may just leave it be.
