i have about 1/3 of the bag done now but i am feeling ants on my hands to start another one. i've been thinking of that one since i made the first, and never got around to really start it. it's going to be either a really big one, multicolored, for the beach, or a clutch sized one, to go clubbing. depends on how i feel while i do it ... Roll Eyes
(not that i go to the beach or clubbing that often. actually, i can't remember last time i did either)

So did you buy the book then? I was going to tell you that it's divided into projects for the four seasons, so it isn't all winterwear. And a lot of the warm weather projects are really cute too. Plus there's some house stuff, and you could make that year-round.

no, i didn't buy the book. i learned the fbb from youtube, and by now i know how to make it almost sleeping. (once i went on working on it late at night and when i woke up there were a few rows i didn't remember doing at all. too bad one of them had the wrong number of stitches and another was done half in single crochet Cheesy )

I am so jumping on this band wagon. This will use up my stash and let me get some Christmas presents done! I have some hot pink yarn that would be perfect. Great job on all the finished bags so far!

I had to frog my bag over and over last night. For the life of me I could not understand the stitch. I started out using some Mango Moon in a pink, yellow and orange color way but with the combination of the unevenness of the yarn and not knowing the stitch it was looking horrible. I switched over two using two strands of a variegated pink cotton and it is starting to turn out pretty nice. With the two strands held together it is giving it a very nice tie-dye effect. Will have pics of it up later.

Okay, I need help.

I finished the main part of the bag last night and realized that I had too many stitches  on one end (something like 26 rather than the 18).  I didn't want my bag to be lopsided, and I frogged the whole thing Cry because I couldn't figure out what I did wrong. 

Does anyone have any ideas as to why my bag ended up lopsided like that? I figure that I added stitches somewhere, but I couldn't figure out where, and the hhdc is hard for me to count the stitches with.  Thanks!

use stitch markers. when you start the first rows, start marking the point where you have to increase, so you'll know you should only increase over the stitch that's marked. and it will be easier to count the stitches on each side of the markers. i don't know if we're using the same stitch, i'm not sure the hhdc is the same i'm doing, but for me it forms a kind of little knot on the base, and i count the stitches feeling the knot with my fingertips.

Ooh thanks,

It is my first time really using stitch markers so I think that is part of the issue. 

That also brings up another question.  Does the number of stitches stay the same between the two stitch markers or from the stitch marker to the end of the row?
