Hi, I am new here. I just wanted to share a couple of my finished projects. I love seeing everyone else's FO's and WIP's . It is great inspiration!

The first is a Booga Bag that I made for my sister. It was my first felting project, and I used Cascade 220. It could have felted a little longer. :shrug: The second is a pair of Fetching that I made for a friend using Simply Soft Shadows in Mardi Gray. This was a fun and quick knit!

Wow! They look great. I love the colours of your bag, I'm a sucker for pink and purple. The cables on your mitts look great too!

Wow ! I love the bag . The colours look great together. The gloves are cool too.

GREAT JOB! :thumbsup:
I may try to knit a pair of those gloves. I made a pair of fingerless gloves for my daughter, but I want to try to knit all the finger holes this time instead of just the thumb hole.
Yours look really cool.

Those are beautiful! Love the color on your Booga Bag, it reminds me of Jello 123...anyone remember that? :shifty:

Those both look great!

Lilchem, I love that bag. The colors are fantastic. Pink is my favorite color. You make me want to make another Booga Bag. Nevermind that I've made 5 of them already.

Jan, I remember Jello 123. Used to love that stuff. Liked it much better than regular Jello which I've never been much of a fan of.

Great FO's! Fetching are on my list too...

Thanks, everyone! :blush: It's nice to get such nice compliments from fellow knitters. The Booga Bag does look like Jello 123!

fabu!!! I bet your sister loved them. I love the colors you chose!

Both are beautiful! Great work on the bag -- I really have to make one of those. And I love the colors in your Fetchings.

Love the bag and the gloves! Were the gloves hard? I'm looking to do a pair for both my sweetie and I, but I am intimidated by the fingerholes and my dark abiding fear of DPNs. :waah:

Thanks! The Fetchings (from Knitty.com) were a fun knit. Not too hard at all. Since they are fingerless gloves, you only have to worry about knitting the thumb. Other than that, they are a tube. The cables keep them tight on the wrist and knuckles. My only advice for DPN's is that you have to keep at it. The first couple of rounds will feel awkward, but if you keep with it, it gets easier. (I always have to remind myself of this!) I say go for it...your sweetie will love them and so will you!

Great job! LOVE your Booga Bag - I have yet to make one of those. Have made plenty of felted bags, but not the Booga Bag yet. And those gloves too! Love them. I'll have to check out that pattern b/c I plan to make a pair of fingerless gloves for a friend for Xmas. :)
