That's really pretty!  I'm going to have to bookmark the pattern.   Cheesy

oooh!  I'm so glad to see this knit up.  I was unsure of the pattern, but seeing it on someone else makes me really want to make it after all!  Love the color, too.  Smiley

Aww, it looks very cute.  What yarn did you use?  It's really fun!
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cute knitted toy bag on: August 28, 2007 08:26:07 PM
Hello, hello!  I finally finished this toy bag from the book Nursery Knits by Zoe Mellor.  I started it in February or March as a first birthday gift for my nephew (which was March 23), but didn't finish it in time, then moved, so it kind of got lost in the shuffle until I went for a visit earlier this month (he lives in CA, I'm in RI).  I used the yarn called for in the pattern, Rowan Handknit Cotton.  This was my first "big" intarsia project (the elephant on the pocket).  I wish I would have had a chance to take more pictures, but I finished knitting it on the plane.  It's a drawstring bag, with I-cord ties at the top.  The only changes I made were I use a different color yarn for the I-cord than the pattern called for and I lined the pocket to keep the mess of my intarsia hidden and as a practical matter to help make sure there would be no snags of any of the stitches.  I didn't line the inside, though, because I wanted it to stretch to hold as much as possible.  My nephew (and my sister) loved it.  He dragged it around with him all afternoon and, as you can kind of tell in the picture, it now holds his favorite stuffed toys.  Smiley

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / super soft and yummy braided neckpiece on: August 28, 2007 08:14:21 PM
Hi everyone!  So I'm probably the last person to jump on the Loop-d-Loop bandwagon, but here's my first finished project from the book.  I present to you, the braided neckpiece!



and the detail:


Kind of an interesting story how this came about.  I was visiting my local yarn store for the first time (I'm new to the area) and I picked up and fell in love with the yarn first.  Misti Baby Alpaca Chunky.  Ever touch it?  Oh my GOD, soooo soft and light...I just wanted to cuddle it!  Anyhow, I wanted something to use it for, but it actually wasn't chunky enough for the first project I'd had in mind, so I kind of left it aside and kept looking around the store.  I opened the Loop-d-Loop book and fell in love with the braided neckpiece.  Simple, yet elegant and it looks difficult even though it's not.  Come to realize, the baby alpaca is the PERFECT size yarn for the project (so you know, it took 2 skeins).  So, after meaning to just go into the store for the first time for a look-see, I walk out with a new book and yarn for my first project from it!

It was a really quick knit, coulda finished it in a day if I didn't start so late at night.  This is one that DEFINITELY needed blocking, though.  All of the edges were curling, but it looks great now that it's blocked.  Ahh, the magic.

Anyhow, sorry I type so much!  Enjoy!

A great find?  I designed the mermaid and the pirate - and the little parrot I adjusted - the original pattern needed some tlc... and the rats - I think they ended up being close to the pattern if not right -

Oops!  I'm sorry, I misunderstood...I thought they came from patterns in the book...  Even cooler, though, that you designed them yourself!  Very cute.   Cheesy

The cat toys definitely look fun for cats! 

I really like the pirate set, though!  What a great find!   Cheesy
