booga bag
i am working on my 4th booga bag. they are not difficult, the same stich all the way thru. Be sure to make it as long as the directions call for so when you felt it you won't get it too short. the first one I made was a kit. I have made 3 others and used a varity of yarn. I like to felt them, so I look for feltable yarn. You can find others feltable other then 100% wool if you look for it. That yarn really felts thick and stiff, I like it for the good form. You must block
the bag after felting it in hot water. I love the booga bag. becky

Thanks for all the tips everyone...I was wondering about the twisted stitch thing. Now I won't worry about it!

the pattern confuses me
for the pattern, it says to CO 34 stitchs, knit 34 rows, then pick up the stitchs on the rectangle and knit it on the round.

by "picking up the stitchs" does that mean increase? because if you only CO 34 in the beginning?

andd it says "there are 17 ridges, so you just pick up one stitch between each ridge"

well what're ridges? i'm like super confused.

Did you make it the size the directions said? Is it a good size to hold some socks? I thought a smallish one with long handles (to drape across the body) to carry sock knitting, say when you are in line or something would be a good one to have.

Good luck!

I did, but I'm not sure I felted it adequately. You could absolutely hold socks in it - I can get a shawl mid-progress in there. It's a little stretchy. And my i-cord is plenty long ... but then, I'm plenty short.

Try watching Amy's video on picking up stitches. It'll give you a general idea of what you're doing. Good luck!!
