Awesome!
It looks great! I just finished a Booga (my first) in the car this weekend. I can't read in the car either.....I still have to do the cording and felt it but the major part is done.

I bet your mom will it!

Very nice! Great job!

How much yarn did you end up using? It looks like a really nice sized bag.

I didn't even use all three skeins!! I expected it to be smaller from the way everyone talked...It is about 8 rows taller than the original pattern called for (I got carried away and before I had realized it, I had too many rows--I didn't figure it'd hurt so I just left it).

The final dimensions are 9" high, 8" wide and 5" deep (at the base of the bag). It think (like the photo with the pattern) it looks bigger in the pics than in real life!

Thanks Cristy. That helps. I'm assuming you only used 1 strand on smaller needles.

I've been trying to decide on whether I should order some Noro or not. I love the different color variations they offer. Very cool. Just didn't want it to get super expensive since I was thinking of making them for the women in the family for birthdays and what not.

Again great job on the bag!

I did do it single stranded and I used the needle size called for in the pattern (10.5). I'm not sure exactly how much yarn I had left over--I used less than two complete skeins for the bag itself and a little from a third skein for the handles. I started the handles (icord) before finishing the bag (just for a change of scenery) which is why I'm not sure if I would have gone over 2 total skeins. I would guess that I did. I'd certainly make it again--but I'd probably make it slightly larger by adding 20 (as some have suggested) to everything--I don't know that I'd double it though.

Mom loved it and even emailed me at work today to tell me that all of the ladies at work loved it too.
