OK, let's see how this goes. I've never posted images before.

I'm a very new knitter. This was my second *real* project other than a couple of very basic scarves I made in garter stitch before I knew how to purl correctly.

This will be a b-day gift for my sister who turns 29 on Thursday. It was fun and EASY to make! I'm now making my second one for my mom's b-day in early March.

Wow. It worked. I've got the images in reverse order, though. I meant to show the pre-felted images first.

Anyhoo, the yarn is Noro Kureyon, but I tossed the label so I'm not sure of the color. I *think* it may have been 135 or something like that.

I modified the strap placement. I liked the look better as a 'bucket' type bag.

Here's a couple of shots of the Booga I'm making my mother.

is the kureyon bulky enough that you can knit with a single strand or do you need to do 2 strands? I am trying to figure out how many skeins I need to do a booga bag?
