Hello everyone!
I've been reading this forum for some time now, and taken some ideas Smiley I'm Portuguese and what you call an advanced begginer Wink
Here you can see the "two hour hat" (but it's too short for me), another hat I've made (the dark green one), a bag, from the rag bag pattern (this is very easy and cute! I use two strings of a thick yarn) and some unfineshed flowers I've made up.

And this scarf I knitted using the allongated stitch:

Thank's for looking Smiley

tinybits: I used the pattern from http://www.knitblog.com/onmymind/Rag%20Bag%20Pattern.gif
It's really very easy and quick! I've made it while I was watching Hulk! (the movie)

Wow, I love it all. The scarf is very nice, and the bag is so cute. I might have to make one of those, thanks for sharing the pattern!

Your stuff is beautiful!  I love the calming colors you used for your projects.  I think the bag and the scarf are my favorites.  Keep it up!  (thanks for sharing the pattern, too)

Oh, thanks you all!
The pattern for the scarf I got it from here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/free_patterns/scarves.php
But I knitted 10 rows of garter stitch and one of elongated (thanks for correcting me, ehehe) stitch.  It's really easy and a very quick way to knit a scarf too.

Hi Carina,

Have you tried using the bag before?  I've made a bag with simiar handles, but found that the handles were too flimsy to carry off the bag.  In the end, it sort of folded in and the bag loses its shape.  Would appreciate if you can share any tips, if you do not face such a problem.

By the way, are those starfish or flowers on the sides?  I like it...  Care to share the pattern?

I'm Glazed!

I love them! Especially that scarf.   I've never heard of that elongated stitch but it looks pretty easy really.  I'll have to give that a go on my next scarf.

Those rag bags are awesome. So easy and really very fast to knit one up.  Cute!

Snowflake, my bag is really small, so it doesn't get too heavy. Also, I used 2 strings of a really thick yarn, so the bag is really.. how should I say.. well, it's not easy to lose shape.
But I know what you mean... I sugest you try two things next time: make the handle thicker, by knitting more rows than the suggested ones in the pattern (I did this in a bigger bag I did for x-mas and it helped) and use a thicker yarn like I did.
I hope it works... but maybe there are more solutions out there Wink
The flowers/stars (the green one really looks like a star), well... I really needed a knit pattern for a flower and I didn't found any I could make. So I made up one. (lol). The.. humm.. (sorry, I'm not a great english speaker!)... petals? were knitted one by one and I think I can explain you the pattern.. let's see:
CO 6 st
k 1 row, p next row (2 times)
on the knit row, k2tog k to the last 2 sts, k2tog (you know have 4 sts)
Continue to do that until you have one st left, and then bind off (bind off is finishing, right?).
I used 9 mm needles for the green one and 6 mm for the blue one, so the bigger the needles are, the bigger will the star/flower thingy be.
You just have to join the petals together by seaming and voil! It's done.
I hope this helped...
