Alright, I am too excited to wait any longer.  Here is my progress so far.  I am really enjoying color work more than I thought I would.  I can see many more color work projects in my future.   Grin

Here's my progress so far.  I was so excited to try it on, I forgot to put a thingie on the end of my needle so my stitches wouldn't fall off and ended up having some stitches fall off and had to pick them up again...phew.  Anyway, its turning out alright.  Wish it was a little bigger, but it will stretch and fit nicely.  I also modified mine a bit.  I was nervous I might show too much skin with the lace pattern (I thought it might go down over my chest) so I only did the lace a few rows.  Boy, was I wrong.  I thought the neckline would be a lot lower too.  I think its because I'm using a dk weight yarn.  I had no idea what weight the suggested yarn was.  Ah well, I still love how it is turning out, and already plan to make another.  (Excuse the horrible picture)

4  What to make with this yummy yarn? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Yarnlova on: March 22, 2006 08:48:07 AM
I bought this awhile ago at a Thrift shop.  It's made by Stahl Wolle called Lambada.  On the tag it says 55% Baumwolle Mercerisert 45% Viscose.  (whatever that means)  Its reminds me of embroidery floss, only thicker, with a beautiful shine.  I have 2 balls of each color, 50g each.  Its very soft and silky feeling.  I want to make something fabulous out of this, but I have knitters block.  Any ideas?

Hi everyone!  I have pretty much finished mine.   I used Red Heart Cozy Wool in Dk Rose.  I made a few changes.  I am a little embarrassed to show mine, as it didn't quite turn out as lace.  I am fairly new to knitting, and I learned a lot while working on this.  I think I did my yo's wrong, because there are no "holes", no lacy look.  And some of my stitches look funky.  Also, I think my gauge was off a bit, as the top and bottom of the bag sorta rippled.  I am not putting a button on it, but a zipper instead, once I line it.  and I think I might put some plastic canvas in the bottom to sturdy it up a bit...maybe, we'll see how lazy I am at the time.  Tongue
Anyhoo...here it is:

Be honest, I can take it.   Cool
