71  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knit Clutch purse? on: December 18, 2004 09:01:42 PM
Is a clutch just a little bag?  i'm dumb when it comes to that sort of stuff...if it is tho, you could just knit a rectangle and then sew it up the sides...leave a little extra for a flap and secure with a button or something like that...make sense?

I agree, you should knit whatever way you feel confortable.  If you try it the "right way" and it's not confortable that will probably take awhile longer.  I taught myself to knit by reading patterns and internet, and my nanna exclaimed that i was knitting backwards!  heh, that's why those mittens that i knitted up turned out inside out...(they came out fine, i mean while they were knitting up the wrongside was showing, apparently that is wrong?)  i think i went off on a tangent, so to make a long story short knit whatever way is confortable for you.

you should get yourself a copy of stitch 'n bitch...it's the best book i've found for folks learning how to knit, it has patterns and it shows you how to do all that stuff

it's easiest to add a new ball of yarn in at the begining of a row.  leave a little bit of a tail of the old yarn (like 6inchs, or less) and tie a loose square knot with that and the new ball.  then just knit as normal with the new ball...when you get a little ways up, or even att he end of your project you can untie the knot and weave in the ends of the yarn

That sounds totally doable.  If you have a pattern you could follow that and then just eliminate the thumb gusset and what-not...seems too simple to follow a pattern tho, of course when i do that everything turns out either freekishly large or teeny tiny.

You didn't really miss much.  However the hpx itself was amazing.
