FO: Booga for Mom
Hey guys--here's the booga I made for mom for her birthday (which is tomorrow!). Had I made this for myself, I'd have chosen a different color scheme but I was going for neutral since I know that's what mom likes. It's the original pattern in Noro 149. I don't think I felted it as long as others have, but I like the outcome as is.

That looks like a VERY expensive bag.
You've got a lucky Mom.

(You look good too.)

hehe thanks--I was in travel mode--hair pulled back, blue jeans and old ratty tee-shirt!

I really hope she likes it--she was on the trip with me this weekend and it was hard to work on it at first b/c she kept asking questions! "What's that....just practice stitches really..." Later..."It's kind of starting to look like a bag......humm..your right,maybe I'll experiment with trying to make it into a bag-good idea mom" All the while DH was trying not to laugh!

Love the bag! (And the story of your sly knitting! )

How do you knit in the car?!? I would be ill all over my work. I get so carsick -- I can't even read a grocery list in the car, or it's all over.

This was the first time I had really knitted in the car and it went well--I was a little nervous at first--I'm unable to read or write so I was surprised that the knitting didn't bother me. My dh is VERY easily car sick too--just riding does it to him--he usually takes anti-nausea medicine just to take a 4 hour drive! It's a good thing I was able to work on it b/c that's really how I got it done on time--the prior week I had hardly touched b/c work was so busy and I was so exhausted when I got home in the evenings.

And yes--I do love the Noro--Eventually I'm going to make another one for me but I want to make the toshiko first b/c it looks like a good knitting tote.

Thanks for all of the kind comments!
