New knitting bag and WIP

I received my large carpet bag from Green Mountain Knitting. Isn't it stunning? Martha always does such a fantastic job! I confess that I own 4 of her wonderful bags and will try to remember to post pictures of the rest this week.

Here is the Noni bag I'm currently working on. It's a modified version of the medium carpet bag using 3 colors instead of 2. I'm about 1/3 of the way through. Yes, I'm knitting at work and no, they don't mind. I'm really liking the way the colors go together on this bag. My LYS wasn't too sure about these colors together, so I'll have to take it in to show off when it's complete. This is going to be a gift for a friend, which I only discovered after I started knitting. She just loves brown and I know she'll love this bag.

3 FOs!

This is my wrap in Noro Iro #56, with KnitPicks Sierra in Bud in the center. As you can tell from the picture, it's quite substantial, as only 2/3 of it are visible. My girl kitty seems particularly fascinated by it.

This scarf is for a co-worker who mentioned about 4 or 5 times how much she loved the colors in this yarn, Noro Silk Garden, not sure of the color.

This is another co-worker birthday present, in Noro Silk Garden #239 (I think that's the right color). This is a pattern I made up on the fly. I think it came out quite nice, although I think I'd make the boxes more rectangular if I made it again.
