Help! I am a fairly new knitter (since late Jan.) and this website has helped me tremendously! I’ve been lurking a while using the videos to learn and reading the posts for information. I’ve had some success with garter, stockinette, drop stitch, and very simple increase/decrease projects. I am really nervous about trying the Booga Bag, but it is soooo cute I cannot resist! Several Q’s:
- Which part of the pattern is knit first? the top? bottom? (I am wanting to try putting in a little eyelash near the top so I need to know where to add that in.)
- I don’t have any Noro Kureyon, and am substituting Paton’s Classic Wool Merino which appears to have the same weight and thread count based on what I’ve read about them both. Anybody else have any experience with trying the Paton’s Wool?
- Any other warnings or tips for a newbie on this pattern? Or trying to integrate eyelash yarn into felting projects?
Any help, advice, or shared experiences are welcome.
THANKS so very much!
