1  Ashley's bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sewnutzz on: July 16, 2008 02:54:48 PM
This is a bag I made for a friend so she can carry her knitting around with her.  The base is ultrasuede, the other fabrics are quilting cottons. 

Interfacing is warm and natural with a plastic needle point canvas base. 

Basic pattern is the Jordy, but I added lots of pockets, both zippered and open, including one that a magazine will fit into.  I also included a snap she can fasten her keys to. 

Monogram done on a Pfaff 7570 using Origins software for digitizing and polyester machine embroidery thread.

2  Chunky Cabled Child's Cap now with PHOTO links in Knitting: Completed Projects by sewnutzz on: November 15, 2007 05:17:51 PM
I am so psyched by this.  I just learned to cable (made a pair of Knitty's Fetching fingerless gloves this week) and decided to try the cable pattern in a child's cap in chunky wool  Worked out great!  I may have re-invented a pattern, but I worked this out all on my own, so please don't call the copyright police on me.  I will post a photo asap, but for now, get out those 17's dpns and some Wool-ease Thick 'n Quick.  This project took me a little over two hours.
Anne (aka SewNutzz)

Here are the photos.  Also, the hat fits a child...toddler to elementary age.  The child modeling is 6 years old. If you want to fit a larger head, add another 5 stitches and another 4 rows k4p1 rib and another cable row before decreasing

(sorry I could not post photos directly because I am still new and have not posted enoough to post photos directly to the forum, but check them out on photobucket!)

Green hat:  

Red hat:  

American size 17 DPNs (4 total)
1 skein Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick 'n Quick (you will use about half of the skein)

Decrease:  K2 together, p1.  Repeat until you get to end of round.
