Booga Bag craze

I decided to get on the Booga Bag bandwagon after trying out Special Companions, a mini-felted bag. It’s not as if I don’t have other projects to finish up! I purchased 3 skeins of Noro Kureyon at my LYS. The color is 148, which is a dark red/purple/reddish brown mix.

I had read posts from others who have used this yarn that it tends to break easily. With that in mind, I’m carefully knitting this bag. So far so good. It’s thinner than I expected, but the colors are pretty cool. I’m not usually a fan of variegated yarn, but this color scheme works for me. I prefer darker, earthtone colors. it seems almost a shame to felt this! But the finished results of other bags seem fine. I’m just getting used to the knit stitches of it currently.

It’s almost done… which isn’t saying much since I still have to make the handles, then off to felting it.
