1  Knitty "Monkey" Handwarmers in Knitting: Completed Projects by mandiej367 on: January 29, 2008 02:10:40 PM
I started knitting these socks on a train from London to Paris...  I was pretty jet-lagged, so I don't know if my gauge was off or my pattern reading skills stunk, but the ankle on these socks came out really fat!


I decided to salvage them into fingerless gloves. They have been gifted to my friend Jenny for use when she moves to Wales to be an au pair in a month.. I figured fingerless gloves are the perfect thing for a working woman.

Here's me wearing them around the house all day.... I didn't want to see them go!

2  Om Yoga Mat Bag in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by mandiej367 on: January 01, 2008 08:59:37 AM
My roommate is ADDICTED to yoga, so I made her this bag for her birthday. I used Sugar n' Cream cotton, which was incredibly cheap and very sturdy.

I have some cotton left-over, so I'm thinking of modifying the pattern a bit to make a re-usable shopping bag. Has anyone else had experience modifying the pattern to do something similar?

3  First post: Banana Silk Purse in Knitting: Completed Projects by mandiej367 on: December 26, 2007 08:06:52 AM
I've been to London twice now, and each time I return with a suitcase full of yarn! In January, I purchased some dyed banana silk from a stall at Spitalfield's Market. (http://www.visitspitalfields.com/) It's much too coarse to be wearable, and much too finicky to work with to make anything large, but I finally got around to making this:

I wish I could have found some banana-themed toile to line it with, but I stuck with my default love of birds.

Has anyone else ever worked with weird handspun yarn like this? It breaks constantly, but I'm looking for something creative to do with the bit I have left.
