161  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Fair Isle Candy Striper Laptop Bag *pictures* on: April 10, 2006 05:10:40 PM
This is the first bag I ever made lining for, so it was kind of trial and error.  I wanted it to be a pretty thick lining, so I sewed some of my mom's quilt batting to 2 rectangles of fabric and a long strip for the sides and bottom.  I would recommend making the liner a little bit smaller than the bag, because mine bunches up a little bit at the bottom, but it's not too bad.  The hardest part was sewing through all the layers of batting and felt.  I broke one sewing machine needle, but I was still glad to use a sewing machine instead of hand sewing.  Good luck!

I finally finished the candy striper bag!  I mainly made it because I wanted to try a herringbone pattern from last year's page-a-day knitting pattern calendar, and I thought it would be fun to make this bag.  It turned out kind of wild, but it was really fun to make.  I added smaller handles along with the big strap, and made a quilted liner with pockets to hold papers and the power cord.  Now all I have to do is get a laptop!

It took like 3 or 4 evenings, the perfect amount of time for a good project if you ask me.

Well,  I went ahead and finished it anyway. I used a goofy bumpy cotton, which is probably not the best stuff for this project, but I had a bunch of it leftover from something else.  I think I like how it turned out! http://oregonstate.edu/~egginge/KnitPictures/Knit%20Stuff/Knot_Ugly_Shrug_Front.jpg

I am at the very end of my knot ugly shrug, and I notice that the directions just kind of stop before they seem to be done.  The last direction for row 5 of the waistband says to "turn, leaving the remaining stitches unworked," then the pattern is over.  I assume that instead of turning and doing another row I should just fasten off, but I was wondering if anyone else noticed this.  The errata on Debbie's site doesn't say anything about it either.   (I am so excited to finish it that I probably won't be able to wait for a reply, but it will eat at me if I don't ask!)  Thanks!
