I proudly present my first Booga Bag, knit over four days and dry in time to give to my Mom on Mother's Day. She loved it! And now my sister wants one too - guss I know what I am making her for graduation. :D

Specs: I used three skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky yarn, working with a single strand on size 11 needles. Other than that I followed the pattern (http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html). Yarn colors were 2 skeins of "blue flannel" (darker) and 1 of "brite blue".

So cute, Jen!!! I bet it's nice & sturdy w/ the L.P. Bulky, too!!

Did you do a regular bind-off on the top, or did you do an i-cord bind-off? It looks thicker or something. :thinking:

Thanks for all of the kind words! :D

DotMom: I just did a regular bind off, but it was rolling out a bit, even after felting, so that may be what you are seeing.

Dig those colors. I'm a really sucker for shades of blue, so that just jumped right out at me. Great job!

My sister liked Mom's bag so much she wanted one of her own. This one is also out of Lamb's Pride Bulky, 3 skeins of "Wild Violet" this time. I reduced the I-cord to 4 stitches and it turned out a better width (at least in my opinion).
