14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Carrie Bag on: August 25, 2008 05:56:42 AM
So named because it's a Christmas gift for my friend Carrie!
I made up the pattern as I went along, which I'm partial to doing.  This is the first bag I've tried to make, so although it's a little...bulky...I'm happy with it.  I want to add something to the outside, like a pin or something.  It needs something, am I right?

The yarn is Moda Dea Cartwheel in Coral Reef.  I used a basketweave stitch for the body with some garter right at the top.  The handles are also garter stitch, but knit on size 6 needles instead of 8 like the body of the bag.  It's hard to see the pattern in these photos, sorry!!

Here's a photo of it inside out.  You can see the lining, which I love!  I hand-sewed that on using the yarn so it's not visible on the outside of the bag.

And here's a close-up of the top of the lining.  I stitched an i-cord all the way around to hide the top of the lining and to add a little detail and support.  My first time making an i-cord also -- how super easy is that!!!

Any comments or critiques would be great!

I love the fabric choices as well!  You should be proud of yourself, these are very slick and professional, not to mention gorgeous!!
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Colorful Kimono Baby Sweater on: August 15, 2008 10:09:42 AM
After making this pattern once before I knew I would have to try it out again!  I used some Debbie Mumm and some regular acrylic and came up with this version:

The gauge for this yarn was just a tad different than the original (surprisingly), so even though I tried to adjust this sweater will probably not fit my DD this year but the next year. We'll try it out this winter though and see what happens - I don't think I can wait a whole year!   Wink

I just found a pattern that I bet is basically what you did for the top round one - did you use short rows, like when making socks?  The pattern is so lovely and quick that I made a bunch of these to use for my impending DD (due tomorrow!) instead of buying baby washcloths.  All of yours are beautiful, and the transformers ones are funny!!
