I posted this in the Whatcha Knitting forum as well, so if you think you're seeing double, you are correct. I cut and pasted because I'm just too lazy...

Here's my booga bag (before and after pictures). I used Noro color #95, as recommended by the pattern.

I have gotten so many compliments on this along with several requests to make them for people...yeah right. No time with my college classes only halfway done.

I have to say that this was one of the easiest projects I've ever done. No one can believe how simple it was because it looks like something you would buy in a store.

I've been reading this thread since it began but have been unsure if I should jump in. I realized yesterday that I spend more time reading about knitting than actual knitting! Maybe if I got off my computer chair and did something about the stash, it would reduce.

I don't have a huge stash. It all fits in a Rubbermaid tub. I don't have a lot of storage space so I determined early on that the yarn could never outgrow the tub. As it stands right now, I have to push on that lid pretty hard to get it to close.

On Friday I started a ballband dishcloth using leftover yarn from a dishcloth KAL group I'm on. Just ten more rows to go. It along with another dishcloth is going to my MIL as thanks for some sewing she did for me. I also have socks started from Silver's web site. The sock yarn has been in the tub for over a year.

I'm going to the Upper Valley Fiber Fest in Troy, OH in a few weeks. I want to get some of this outta here so I can buy a little something there.

Such pretty scarves! And love the bag!

There's a little knitting going on here. I made another cute little hat, and I'm working on another burp cloth. And I fell off the wagon b/c of that lovely sale mentioned in the General Knitting section. Since we're getting ready to move, it'll go straight to the stash. Bad knitter, no biscuit!!
