1  Re: Brea Purse from Berocco in Knitalongs by slimissaw on: October 01, 2007 10:22:56 AM

So here's the first part of mine.... I'm using a double strand of the Berroco Ultra Alpaca as recommended.  I hardly ever use the recommended yarn for a project, but I LOVE the color and the yarn is very yummy! 
I love what everyone has done with theirs.  I was thinking of using a hidden clasp on the inside, and still using a button for decoration outside.  Or maybe a zipper... still no sure yet. 
As far as the handle goes, I'll look around and see if I can find something, but I'll probably order one from MJTrim.

well here is what I made for Calebsmama:
A felted Sophie bag with felt flowers that I embroidered on, and I lined it with blossom fabric that I stumbled upon

some stitch markers

and an attempt at painting (the writing says "cherry blossom")

I also managed to find a pretty cherry blossom card!

I had so much fun with this swap... if there is another one in the future, I'm all in!  Cheesy

wow... everyone is getting such great stuff! 
I was so happy to come home late tonight and find my package from Calebsmama waiting for me! 
Inside was a great embroidered bag with crocheted blossoms on it

as well as a cute little notebook with some cherry blossoms, and a cute redesigned Altoid tin, with 6 beautiful stitch markers inside.  The top of the tin looks like sushi rolls!  very cute!!

Thanks for being my first Craftster swap partner Calebsmama!

So I've been feverishly knitting away on this the last couple of days, and I thought it was coming along pretty nice... but then I tried it on.  It seems to fit perfectly in the back:

but then in the front, its way too baggy!

I did do one set of the short rows.  I think I'll be frogging and then going down one more size and omitting the short rows.  I'm worried that the back won't fit right, though.   Undecided
Thoughts??  Huh

Oh, BTW... I am using KnitPicks Shine Worsted in Watermelon... I LOVE this color!

So here she is!  I really like this sweater!  The only things I would change when I knit this again (and I will knit this again!)  would be to make the torso a bit longer, and make the button holes a little smaller.  Or perhaps pick up more stitches for the button band as someone else suggested.  Overall, tho I really love it.  Its super warm!

I started this a lilttle while ago and i've made good progress so far.  Here is the back:

I am using a worsted weight yarn, Plymouth Galway Highland Heather in a pretty greenish grey color, and size 6 needles.  I ordered some nice wood buttons from MJ Trim, too... I think it will be really nice!

Here's mine finally!!  I started this back in August and just finished it this week.  I used Simply Soft, and in the middle I used garter stitch instead of the mock rib.  Now I just need to find a cool pin or something to fasten it! 

Thanks everyone for the inspiration!! Grin

where are all of these pictures that everyone is talking about??  i wanna see some!  I will post one of my own... I decided on the garter stitch version, and i've only knit one small square so far, but I like the way it looks:

I'm using Caron simply soft, and size seven needles.  This project will likely take forever, but I'm really excited about it!
