FO: Finally Felted Booga Bag
Hi all!

Here is my old/new FO. It's technically a new FO because I just felted it last night. However, it's also technically an old FO because I finished knitting it in September!!

I had an unexplainable fear of felting. You can read the whole story here.

It's not the greatest picture...and I'm still figuring out how to make my i-cord knot look "pretty." Anyways, thanks for looking!

That's nice! I like how it's wide. What pattern did you use?

I had trouble making satisfactory I-cord knots too. It was frustrating. I'm still not thrilled with it.

Thanks!! I basically used the Booga Bag Pattern, but I modified the number of stitches. The problem is that I did it so long ago, I can't remember how many I did!

Sorry I can't be more helpful!

You did a GREAT job!

I'm glad you felted it!!!

It looks great! Love the stripes!

To make my knots look "good" I just pull really hard on them - sometimes one cord at a time to help tighten them up.
