Good to know, thanks for sharing!  Smiley I went to my first Lowes over the weekend and looked at all the flooring options- there are tons!!!!  I've seen a ton of mosaics that have caught my eye; maybe I'll use your technique and choose that first then pick the rest of the tiles to go with it.  Smiley

That's really great!  How did you do it?  What kind of lights did you use?

I love your tiling job!  Where did you get the tile but especially the mosaics?  My hubby and I recently bought our first home and we've gutted the place so we need a lot of new flooring.  I'd love to know where you purchased this!  Thanks!  Smiley
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: purple felted bag on: April 05, 2006 06:27:10 AM
I used the basic Booga Bag pattern, but adjusted it to make the base larger and sewed the handles on prior to felting.  I also used a 5 stitch i-cord for the handles to make them wider.  This is my favorite felted bag so far.

I love your bag!  Smiley I also wanted to sew on the i-cord before felting so it was all "together."  And karynlibrarian that's interesting what you said about the i cord.  I had the hardest time figuring out how to do it- it is kind of a pain.  And I will never understand why it's called the idiot cord.  Cheesy

It's the Booga Bag pattern.

I also recently did a Booga Bag with my own twist to it.  I have finished the bag and am just working on the i cords.  As soon as I finish that and felt it I'll post a picture.  Smiley Beautiful bag, by the way!

Sgolard- your description was just what I was looking for to figure this "Idiot" cord out.  Cheesy It was great and I sat right here at work and did a few rows.  Thank you!

ruwena- your desrciption was great too and would have helped me out.

Thanks for all your help everyone!

Thanks for the video link.  Someone else had referred me to that page but for some reason my work computer won't let me view the entire video.   Huh I think I'll have to bring it in to my LYS for help.

I don't know if this will help or not, but here goes. Cast on five stiches (or however many your pattern calls for) on double points. Slide the stitches to the other end of the needle so that your yarn is on the left hand side and the stitches are facing you. Knit the next row starting with the stitch on the right tip of the left needle (like you normally would), but the yarn coming off of the left side. You will need to pull the first one or two really tight. The first couple or rows will look really bizarre and wrong, but it all begins to take shape in the fifth row. Keep knitting with the first stitch on the right tip of the left needle and the yarn coming off on the left side of that needle. As you knit, the yarn will pull that gap shut coupled with the normal roll of stockinette. Hope that helps?


This is the description I've been looking at and still can't figure out how to do the icords.  Did you get this from SnB?  Smiley  Anyone else got some pointers for me?  I'm able to cast on and knit the first row with no problem  Cheesy it's the next part that has got me confused.

How exciting!  Smiley

It would be great if you came to Burlington, VT.  It's a very crafty city and state.  Plus it's very pretty here!
