Another gold medal winner in Winnipeg!

Well I may not have a handful of medals like Cindy Klassen, but I've earned my gold in the KO... here's the proof: I'm so thrilled with how it turned out. I squealed with delight as I pulled it out of the washer! It's a *lot* smaller than I thought it would be. With how large it was pre-felting, I was expecting a tote along the same size as my Payless Shoes tote. This one here is about the size of a magazine, and about 5 inches deep. I'm still sitting here grinning like the Cheshire Cat... I GOT FELT!!! YAY!!!

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the bag. But I LOVE HBC stuff too! I really shouldn't, and all, since I work at Fort William Historical Park which was actually a Northwest Company fort....but I digress. :)

Good job!

Thanks Lyz! I'm so glad I decided to restart it, and I'm just thrilled with how it turned out. And I still get my gold, how cool is that?

Thanks Karlie! What's funny is that I work for Wal-Mart! Every day when we leave, our bags have to be inspected by a manager... strangely enough, I didn't get any comments about using the competition's colours on my knitting!

Is that ever neat! Being somewhat new to knitting, I had no idea what a "booger" was. Now that I've seen it finished it would be a great project. Congratulations!

Lovely, lovely, lovely!

I want one.
Maybe in the next (K) Olympics?

Oh, it is beautiful! An HBC blanket-bag! I didn't know what a booger was either. It's gorgeous.

Well Booger is simply the nickname of the bag. I was inspired to create this tote by the Booga bag pattern on the net. I wanted a "bigger booga" though, and that was eventually shortened to "booger"... pun intended!
