bags

ok ... first off ... this is my very first bag that was knit in the round and as things never fail i had the wrong sizes... should have been a US 5 and US 10.5 buttttttttttt.... i had US 10 and US 15... LOL....i like these colors to a certain extent and as "someone" calls this bag "granny panty bag"... i am giving this one to my mom so she can tote her stuff in it... if she puts alot in it it will stop around her ankles.... LOL...




now this bag is the original colors i wanted for my self... yet here we are with another problem... i only had 1 ball of the variegated... that was the only one i could find in this county....so i made it for my 5 yr old niece... perfect for a lil girl... the problem with this is my dearest friend who got me addicted to this bag told me that only 2 balls of cotton would be enough... well this is only 2 balls.... we even checked my needles and they are the correct size so the big question here is......... why can anyone else who makes this bag can make it with only 2 balls and it come out bigger and i on the same size and same cotton make it and it be small.... GO FIGURE...

bags 2

this bag i made for my sons principal... shes pretty cool... i made this one on the right size needles but still had to use 3 balls of cotton.... if i hadnt already designated this bag to her i would keep t for me.....

this one was made using acrylic yarn... it is for my sons teacher ... her favorite colors are turquoise pink and yellow... well after much thought and all i just could NOT do yellow in it...

a few "new" firsts for me....

ok... first of all melanie has been trying for i don't know how long to get me to do new things... like knit in the round, yo's, and too many other things.... well she finally got me hooked... i have been watching her knit 90 goin' north on these everlasting bagstoppers and i have fallen in LOVE with them.... it started out that i would do the bottom and she pick up stitches and get me going on in the round stuff ..... but.... i did it!!!... she showed me how to pick up the stitches and i got the hang of that right off... i did manage to get a few extra stitches on the bag though.... fixed that problem ....i even joined in the new yarn and started in the round... i am still getting the hang of the in the round business.... but this bag is ... as melanie puts it... mindless once you get goin'... the colors are... the bottom (and handle when i get there) is sugar n cream pistachio and the body of this bag is sugar n cream landscape... once i get more of the body finished i will post it with the bag upright so you can get a better looksie.... have a great day!!! laters :Þ
