View Full Version : FO: Booga Bag

OK, let's see how this goes. I've never posted images before.

I'm a very new knitter. This was my second *real* project other than a couple of very basic scarves I made in garter stitch before I knew how to purl correctly.

This will be a b-day gift for my sister who turns 29 on Thursday. It was fun and EASY to make! I'm now making my second one for my mom's b-day in early March.

That's beautiful! What yarn did you use; I love the colors!

Wow. It worked. I've got the images in reverse order, though. I meant to show the pre-felted images first.

Anyhoo, the yarn is Noro Kureyon, but I tossed the label so I'm not sure of the color. I *think* it may have been 135 or something like that.

I modified the strap placement. I liked the look better as a 'bucket' type bag.

Here's a couple of shots of the Booga I'm making my mother.

is the kureyon bulky enough that you can knit with a single strand or do you need to do 2 strands? I am trying to figure out how many skeins I need to do a booga bag?

they are gorgeous :inlove: , congratulations. I'm in love with Kureyon. Eisaku Noro is simply genius.

It looks great! My noro sweater is out of the first - and my friend has been trying to find the #95 locally with no luck...

Thanks for the compliments everyone! The darkish blues in the first bag are REALLY stunning in person. Kind of like a mix between a sapphire and an amethyest. Stunning, really.

I used 3 skeins of the Noro Kureyon for each bag with a small amount left over each time. I also made my i-cord about 6.5 feet. I didn't need to double strand it at all.
