What happens when you take home-dyed yarn, a nice circular needle, a driving trip through Texas, and a Knitting Olympics challenge?

See for yourself:

Pre-trip:



In the parking lot of the laundromat:


And after all is said and done:


Booga bag pattern, adding 20 stitches to width, 20 rows to depth, and about 15 rows to height (I lost count).  Not pleased with the handle, may change that down the line.

Wow! I was just going to post a question on the discussion page about this project!! First of all great job! Love the colors!!

My question if you decide to answer is: When the pattern says to pick up 16 stiches what is that talking about I am having a total brain fade!!! The original pattern calls for 34 rows of 34 stiches what do I do? I dont know why this is not making sense to me any help would be appreciated! Hope no one gets mad that Im posting on this board instead its just that you just made this bag so there you go forgive me in advance!
Thanks!!!

When you do a garter stitch, there are "bumps" from when you turn your work.  What you do is pick up stitches between the bumps.  So really, you're picking up stitches on every other row on each of the short sides.

You'll also want to check out the video on www.knittinghelp.co m about picking up stitches.

Really, once you get started, you'll get it.  I found it harder to pick up on the cast-on edge.
