All righty, then. One more thing about the Booga:

What if I made two layers for the bottom of it & felted them together? Does anyone have any experience with doing this? Do you think it would make a more sturdy bag?

I posted in your blog already, but Ill post here, too, so everyone else can see...

Hildie has knit the bottom and a few rows up the sides with a double strand of yarn...that reinforces the bottom somewhat.

I also think, though, that if you dont mind fussing with PU sts and 3nBOs, that your suggestion is a GREAT one!

Well, I've already headed up the sides of the bag. So, I think what I would have to do is knit another base, sew it into the bottom, and then felt. I'm not sure I'll have enough yarn for that, but I could use some of the Lamb's Pride that I have left over.

BTW ... this Noro Kureyon seems to be awfully skinny -- like fingering weight -- in some spots. Has anyone experienced that w/ this yarn?

i have six skeins that i have wound up here into balls and i think it all seems thinner than worsted weight...i don't know that i will be able to bring myself to use it for the booga...just doesn't seem heavy enough for my liking...think i want something bulkier!


plus not terribly fond of it after having wound it :( too dark for my liking...maybe a bag for someone else! :D
