View Full Version : people who have made a booga with NORO
12-06-2005, 02:25 PM
how much yarn was left over from the 3 skeins of Noro? i'm asking cause i need to know if i should make the bottom of this gift bigger with another yarn so it will be bigger or will i have enough Noror to do it... would help if i make the strap from something different too? did that make sense?

i would suggest making the straps first and then just using all you have to knit the body of the bag - even if you knit up a few more rows than it calls for

I got in here a little late, but I don't think I'd be any help, anyway!! :oops: I knit that first Booga some time ago, and I can't remember how much yarn I had left. :?? It seems like it wasn't much, though. I think the idea of knitting the handles first is a great idea. Just a little suggestion if you think you've got enough yarn: try two strands for the handles; otherwise, they're pretty stretchy.

carmell, what color noro are you using? I ordered some fushia bright color.

That IS a really good ide about doing the straps first!
So it's only 3 skeins? I've had 3 skeins laying around for months, maybe it's time to get going. I forgot where the pattern is! I think I saw it free.... ????
:thinking: booga booga booga

you know, I was afraid it might be too small for me. I like the large purses too. i tend to throw everything in my purse.

At the "Wendy Knits" she suggests casting on 60 stitches and doing 40 rows, playing the height by ear. This is at the 11/4/03 entry. BTW, this woman is totally enthralled with Booga bags and there is a lot of helpful info there about Noro and Booga bags.

ha ha Wendy knits huh? Ok koolbreeze, thanks, yeah I like a big bag too but sometimes it's nice to have different size ones. I bought a little felted bag from this lady at a wool/sheep festival, god is it beautiful. It's like felted mohair, a beautiful variegated green with thick black strap. So pretty, even if it's small I think I'll use it when I just need cash, glasses & lipstick!
I need to make a booga bag. I got an itch for one. Where oh where is Wendy? :??

highlight the address, hit Control + C for copy, go back to us here and
in the body of your posting, hit Control + V. It will place the address there for you without you having to type it out. I THINK this works on most computers.... doesn't it?
