and here is my very first booga bag! ipod for scale. i did follow the pattern, but i think the next one i will knit on 13 US. i guess i am a tight knitter? who knew.... i did make some small adjustments, i added a pocket (garter square, felted, sewn in), and a button and loop closer.
here you can see all the 'parts' pre-felt. top - bottom, clockwise:
pocket square, booga bag, loop closure, icord handle. and i had yarn left over. i made all of this with 3 balls of noro kureyon #154. this is how i figured out i must knit tight.
and my niece, modeling the felted booga after all said and done. i hand felted some of the pink noro for the button part of the closure.
and just a nice shot of my mom and my dd playing with one of her wind chimes! *puffy heart*
p.s. i am addicted to knitting, and spinning. i wonder if i can get someone to just buy me a wheel? no way dh will ever spring for one *insert eye roll here*, i can make room for it in the garage and have lots of space to do all y spinning too.. not that i have been thinking about it a lot or anything.
