1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Knitalong Felted Bag on: January 16, 2005 04:48:29 AM
I finished my Sophie a long While ago.  I added a fuzzy yarn the last to rows and bind off.  It turned out so CUTE!  I just moved from VA to CA.  When I'm done unpacking I will take a picture and post it.  I've also made 2 felted purses with a fur trim from a pattern I purchased on ebay...soooo cute.  I also made a felted tote out of Manos d'Uraguay.  Unfortunately, I felted this one too long and it's much smaller than I anticipated.  Everything I've made has been for others.  Right now I'm actually making a Clapotis out of the Lion and Lamb Lorna's laces for myself.  It is soo soft 50% each of wool and silk.

I will be making another bag, perhaps a sophie for my sister.  I've been reading about people doubling the yarn to make it stiffer and then attaching beaded handles.  I'm going to try this for my sister.  Her birthday is in February.  Luckily the sophie is EASY!

Thanks for such a fun Knitalong.


P.S.  I find I have to run it through the wash cycle up to 5 times before it's felted the way I like.  Sometime I had boiling water to the wash to speed things along.

You need to cut the yarn, leaving a foot and a half to be safe of yarn.  Attach it to the other stitches and knit away.  Then you twist them around eachother and attach them one at a time with kitchener stitch.

If you have any questions email me privately at daniellecbowen@hotmail.com

Good luck,

Just wondering who's holding up the scrarves?  I haven't received any in weeks.  PLEASE forward them to the next person even if you haven't worked on them.  It's okay! 

I just want to finish the swap and move on.

Hello Everyone,

Just wondering if anybody has kept track of how many scarves they've forwarded?  We will be moving in about 6 weeks and I am hoping to have this swap done before then.

I haven't received a scarf in several weeks.  I have a suggestion, that if you've got scarves lined up waiting to be knitted, maybe you can just mail them out as is.  The nice thing is since they are so mixed match, when you get your scarf back, you can add on as much as you want with different yarns.

I hope everyone had a peaceful Thanksgiving,

in Virginia

Hi Everyone,

You can DEFINITELY do the Sophie.  I just finsihed felting my first.  The bottom is garter stitch which is knit everyrow, and then you pick up stitches and then you just knit in the round.  SUPER EASY!!!

Join the Sophie Knitalong.  I'll be posting my picture tomorrow after it dries.

It's gorgeous!@!!!

Thanks for the suggestion.  I decided to follow your advice and just add the fluffy in the last 3 rows.  I was worried about not having enough yarn to finish the straps so didn't finish all the rows.  It's nice though, only having to use 1 skein.

I'll be at the Knit and nosh tonight.  Maybe I will see you there.

JUST GORGEOUS!  Love the fur and the lining.  I figured I'd add the fur trip at the end.  But hadn't really thought out that the straps would be in the way.  I'll have to rethink the design.

Thanks for the inspiration,

Well, I picked up my lime green Cascade for my Sophie.  I'm making a matching poncho ish type for my niece.  I think after it's felted I'm going to pick up stitches and use some fun fur around the top.  The skein says it's Polamide.  Not sure what that is but it doesn't sound like wool to me.

I'll take some picture before I felt and after so you can see the difference.  It's a pretty fun, brainless type of knitting.  Once done I need to get back to my son's sweater which only needs the bottom bands.

Have a great day,

Yes, I did. First with my 1 year old and the next day with my daughter who helped me wind some yarn for a felted bag.

I have to go back and get the Cascade 220 for the Sophie.

LOVE the shop, the colors, the yarns and the staff seems to be friendly.

Keep up the good work,

We sure have a bunch of creative people on here.  I will definitely take pictures of the next scarf that comes my way.  I loved the yellow with the buttons.  I think Rachael started it.

Also, I love the ability to use the scraps of yarn you have laying around as well as trying fun and funky stitches.

Happy Knitting,
