It finally felted, it took 5 pairs of my husband's jeans to do it but its done! I also finished "Grandma's Favorite Washcloth" so I am also posting a pic of it too. The Booga is going to my daughter in Humboldt County and I am making maybe 4 or so different washcloths for my mom as she loves to take baths. Does anyone know of a way to maybe insert something in the bottom of the bag to keep it stiff so it does not hang the way it is?

About halfway down in the washcloth, I see some mistakes and I really have no idea how they happened :shrug: but I figure my mom won't see them!

I am also knitting the Acorn Washcloth but there was a really different stitch in it so I took it to my knitting class last week and asked my teacher about it. Well, she has been knitting for 40+ years and it stumped her! So she has it and has figured it out and will help me out next week with it.

Beautiful Booga! What color is that? I know some people have put plastic canvas in the bottom of bags to help keep them flat.

Nice dishcloth too!.

What was the tricky stitch, now I'm curious!

Beautiful! I'm sure your Mom would love the washcloth even if she did notice any mistakes (which she probably won't).

Thank you for the compliment, I consider this to be my first real project that I finished so I quite happy with it!

My teacher has the washcloth and the instructions or I would be able to let you know. It out of a book called "Fun to Knit Washcloths & Pot Holders". I will post it here when I do get it

Lovely, Lovely! I put a piece of cardboard in the bottom of my booga one day when I was out and saw that the bottom was droopy! I was going to replace it with hard plastic, but, truthfully I forgot because the cardboard did the trick!
I love bathing with handknit washcloths, too :cheering:

Love the booga bag. GREAT colors.

Washcloths are such a great way to try out stitches.

KellyK used a box of detergent. She draped it over the box and it dried a perfect rectangle/square thingy.

I absolutely love the bag they all look so different in the different colours.

Is it suitable for a beginner/just picked up knitting again after many years away?

It really is lovely. Seems like the cardboard works for the bottom.

Congratulations on the bag and the cloth.
