Booga in progress - NOW done...and stash peek
This is the before and almost-after. It's the "customized" Booga method.

http://vtknitter.blogspot.com/2005/1...booga-bag.html

It said to knit 65 rows, but after I had used up all the 2 skeins of Kureyon, I was only to the mid 50s, so I knit on a few more rows of the Cascade 220 like I used for the bottom and will be using for the I-cord. I was so anxious to get it felted, I did the bag even before the I-cord was done! LOL It's in color #95, that I had bought from brendajos. I'd have to check the tag on the Cascade color, I call it "split pea soup" green, and it matched the Kureyon really well. The bag is for a friend's birthday on April 2! It took about 3 trips through the front-loading washing machine, and I was even adding nearly boiling water heated up on the stove, and it was in a pillowcase, and washed with a pair of jeans and pair of shoes. I still have about 5 feet of I-cord to go. Do you think I can just do the I-cord with regular laundry and maybe in the dryer a bit?

I'm not able to answer your i-cord question, but wanted to say that the bag looks great - the baby is very cute too. Great job!

As long as your sure the color won't run I think throwing it in with a load of laundry on HOT will work fine. I would check it though during the wash cycle and if it looks like you want it take it out.

The bag is gorgeous! Such pretty colors! The bags always look so huge before felting.
