BTW, 1 1/4 C of DME is about right. Your bubbles should be nice and small and leave a better "Brussels Lace" effect as well as a good head.

If you don't have a bottling bucket, use your primary. But you want to mix the sugar before you bottle, and I think it's best to do so in another container (not the carboy.)

Cereel's question asked if he primed in the carboy. Your reply was to rack to a bottling bucket then prime. My answer missed the question and should have been the same as yours - to transfer to a bottling bucket and prime.
Cereel: The intent here is to use another container (bottling bucket) then prime. This way you get your cleared beer off of any yeast in the secondary. You don't want to mix it back in prior to bottling.
