1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Knitty's Fetching! on: August 25, 2006 09:58:38 AM
these look awesome! i just bought some nice green yarn (don't know the brand offhand) so i can try to make these. first time doing cables, but everyone seems to think its fairly easy, so i'm not scared.

anyway, i absolutely adore that orange color!

okay, i've finished the bag!



i think the main problem was that the tension is too tight, so if i make another one, i'll be sure to do it looser.

i put a lining in as well, hand sewn, which was difficult but i'm happy with it.  i would like to put some kind of pin on it though...



already starting on a mini project: making dishclothes!

that bag looks awesome. where did you find the bird pin if you don't mind me asking? i'm looking for an owl to put on mine!

i read what you said about the tension being the same, and realized i did the handles much looser than the bag.  i redid one side, and boy, what a difference!

thank you so much for your advice, it helped a ton!

p.s.  your bag is so cute (especially the second one...) and owly, i love the colors in yours Smiley

i followed the pattern exactly (i think) but i'm still learning, so you know how that goes.

in the book, you decrease in row one every stitch, but it says to do it only twice in row 2 (after the first stitch, and before the last stitch).

on your fat bottom bag, how far do the sides go down from the top?

it looks so professional, great job on the lining!

these are so amazing!

i can't wait to get better crocheting skills.

lovely...

yep, you're right. i decreased in row 1 (all stitches) and then in row 2 twice.

maybe i'll just frog it!
