people who have made a booga with NORO
how much yarn was left over from the 3 skeins of Noro? i'm asking cause i need to know if i should make the bottom of this gift bigger with another yarn so it will be bigger or will i have enough Noror to do it... would help if i make the strap from something different too? did that make sense?

i would suggest making the straps first and then just using all you have to knit the body of the bag - even if you knit up a few more rows than it calls for

I got in here a little late, but I don't think I'd be any help, anyway!! I knit that first Booga some time ago, and I can't remember how much yarn I had left. It seems like it wasn't much, though. I think the idea of knitting the handles first is a great idea. Just a little suggestion if you think you've got enough yarn: try two strands for the handles; otherwise, they're pretty stretchy.

That IS a really good ide about doing the straps first!
So it's only 3 skeins? I've had 3 skeins laying around for months, maybe it's time to get going. I forgot where the pattern is! I think I saw it free.... ????

:thinking: booga booga booga

At the "Wendy Knits" she suggests casting on 60 stitches and doing 40 rows, playing the height by ear. This is at the 11/4/03 entry. BTW, this woman is totally enthralled with Booga bags and there is a lot of helpful info there about Noro and Booga bags.
