Booga Bag Progress





This is the first bag I've ever knitted - I'm learning more skills every day! I've learnt how to do an icord (see previous post) on 2 double pointed needles, bit tedious though. I have to do 6 feet (!) of it for the handles for the bag. The bag itself I had to pick up about 75 stitches and I'm very proud of the results so far :-) I'm hoping to have finished it by the weekend (ha!) I'll post more pics then, the before and after of the felting.

The bag is looking really good! I love the colour of your wool.

An I-cord, clever as it is, can be a bit soul destroying to make. Especially when you have 6,7,8,9 feet to make!!

When I simply cannot stand making them anymore with dpns, I usually crochet a cord/tube instead.

Can't wait to see the finished bag.

Best wishes..Bernie
