I'm sharing my first project. It is the Booga Bag from this web site: http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html I came out shorter then it should have I'm not sure why though.
Here it is before I felted it:

I made a lining for it cause I love pockets:

Here it is turned inside out, to show the lining better.

Wow! :noway: What an AMAZING first project! :passedout:
I can't believe this is your first project! It's just amazing.
My first project (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=25445&highlight=christmas+hot+pad) is nothing compared to yours :pout:
How long have you been knitting? :?? Looks like you just joined! Welcome to KH! :cheering:

That looks great!!

Aquaria--you should try the booga bag--it's really easy, quick and gratifying! It was my first FO too!! About a year or so ago you couldn't log onto this forum w/o reading about the booga--it was soooo popular....think of all of the threads about options...that's how it was w/ the booga!

The best part about that pattern is it's so easily modified if you want a larger bag. And if you use noro...the striping is to die for!!!!

Aquaria: Thanks :) It was my first knitting ever so I'm very new to knitting. It was easy except that I ended up with more stitches then I should have and there are holes that once I felted I couldn't see.

Cristy: If I could have found the Noro yarn I would have used it, no one in the store I was at knew anything about it. :(

landolphe: Thank you, I hope so. I'm going for a baby blanket next :)
