FO - Another Booregon Off The Needles
Whew ... Booregon #3 done:

Pre-felting (including close-up of "tweed"):

Post-felting (including close-up of "tweed"):

This was knit with Lamb's Pride Periwinkle & Noro Kureyon #52 held together for the tweedy part; the contrast is Lamb's Pride Jack's Plum.

I knit this one in the dimensions of a Booga Bag but used the Oregon Tote techniques, which make for a very sturdy bag.

One thing: Doing this in the Booga dimensions caused the "buttonholes" on the end panels to be pretty close together; I think the next one I make I will go back to the Oregon Tote dimensions.

Thanks, everyone!

Julie -- only 3 left to go! (maybe four -- I'm not happy w/ the first one now that I've switched techniques -- it's too flimsy)
