Here's my first booga, ready for felting. I was going to wait and post all at once, but since the top part is curling, I thought I'd post and ask if this is easily fixed when blocking. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Ronda, you did that quick :thumbsup: Good job. I think the felting will take care of the curling.

:inlove: ooooh, nice! that looks like Kureyon 148! great job! :inlove:
felting should fix the curling. my stockinette bags were all curled but they uncurled while felting.

LOL, Jodi! You sure do know your Kureyon!!! It is 148! I wanted 55, but my LYS had only 2 skeins of it, so this was my second choice. I have since found a new LYS - and I'm so impressed. They are so NICE in the new LYS and so helpful and down to earth. I went and bought 4 skeins of #55 from new LYS to do a second bag! :XX: I've been trying to read all the posts here on the booga, and someone metioned using 2 strands to do the bottom and up the sides a bit, and I might try that!

Thanks for the responses! :heart:

I'll be sure to post an after photo!

I love the colors in that yarn. Look forward to seeing it felted.

The antique knitter (me) is wondering why it's called a booga bag.

Lovely!!!

Mine curled like crazy, but the curl disappeared completely when it felted--came out of the wash flat.

I'm going to have to agree with everyone else, those colors aree wonderful. Another lady in SnB made one too and her's also turned out great. I just might have to add this to my queue. Try my hand at felting.

It turned out so beautiful. Is it for your daughter? Because it doesn't look like she's gonna let go of it! (If she's anythink like my daughter.) ;)

I actually made it for my mother and gave it to her last night for her 59th birthday along with a book (A Million Little Pieces) and some other stuff I stuck in the purse. My daughter does want one, so I'm sure she'll get one! I have a pattern for an Ugg purse, and she wants me to make that for her too!

Have you read A Million Little Peices? We read it for our book club. I loved it, but its interesting to hear different peoples views on it.
