FO - First booga bag
Here's my first booga, ready for felting. I was going to wait and post all at once, but since the top part is curling, I thought I'd post and ask if this is easily fixed when blocking. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

ooooh, nice! that looks like Kureyon 148! great job!
felting should fix the curling. my stockinette bags were all curled but they uncurled while felting.

LOL, Jodi! You sure do know your Kureyon!!! It is 148! I wanted 55, but my LYS had only 2 skeins of it, so this was my second choice. I have since found a new LYS - and I'm so impressed. They are so NICE in the new LYS and so helpful and down to earth. I went and bought 4 skeins of #55 from new LYS to do a second bag! :XX: I've been trying to read all the posts here on the booga, and someone metioned using 2 strands to do the bottom and up the sides a bit, and I might try that!

Thanks for the responses!

I'll be sure to post an after photo!

I love the colors in that yarn. Look forward to seeing it felted.

The antique knitter (me) is wondering why it's called a booga bag.
