Yarn p0rn

So since I am limited on the camera front. I am checking out cannon now due to my sisters camera and Cass' post. We'll see. I am horrible about making choices ask anyone who knows me. It is my OCD.
Anyway this is what I am knitting with and I personally love this yarn:Noro Kureyon.
I love the colors and how it knits up.  I am making theBooga Bag and the colors are so happy!  It makes me happy looking at it and knitting it.  Here is the pattern link:

Plus, if anyone can tell me what the backlash against this yarn is for I would appreciate it.  I see the bumper stickers on blogs but do not understand.
These colors make me SOOO Happy Really!

The colors are beautiful - I just hate how it feels. :*( And for felting, it's a personal preference - I like things that felt up a bit sturdier than Kureyon does. Many folks love love love it! And I do adore their colors and how they knit up.. but.. yea, not so much on the scritchiness of it compared to other yarns.

Noro Kureyon colors make me happy too. Yes, it's a little scratchy, but using Soak improves the softness.
