FO - Another Booregon Off The Needles

Whew … Booregon #3 done:

Pre-felting (including close-up of “tweed”):

Post-felting (including close-up of “tweed”):

This was knit with Lamb’s Pride Periwinkle & Noro Kureyon #52 held together for the tweedy part; the contrast is Lamb’s Pride Jack’s Plum.

I knit this one in the dimensions of a Booga Bag but used the Oregon Tote techniques, which make for a very sturdy bag.

One thing: Doing this in the Booga dimensions caused the “buttonholes” on the end panels to be pretty close together; I think the next one I make I will go back to the Oregon Tote dimensions.

It turned out beautiful, Julie!

How many left to go?? :smiley:

Oh that is beautiful!!! :cheering: :cheering:

I need to try a felted bag sometime!

The colors are fantastic! :heart: :heart: :heart:

Thanks, everyone!

Julie – only 3 left to go! (maybe four – I’m not happy w/ the first one now that I’ve switched techniques – it’s too flimsy)

SOOO pretty, Jul!! :inlove:

Very nice. I really like the tweedy effect in the felt!

Oh I love it! I want to knit a bag BAD!! Maybe my next project!

That is just gorgeous! :heart: I cannot wait to try one of those!

That is so b-e-a-utiful! I absolutely :heart: the colors. Excellent choice! :inlove:
