FO: Booga for Mom (and now sister too - pg2)
I proudly present my first Booga Bag, knit over four days and dry in time to give to my Mom on Mother's Day. She loved it! And now my sister wants one too - guss I know what I am making her for graduation. :D

Specs: I used three skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky yarn, working with a single strand on size 11 needles. Other than that I followed the pattern. Yarn colors were 2 skeins of "blue flannel" (darker) and 1 of "brite blue".
