1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / can yarn be cursed? on: July 19, 2007 05:36:43 AM
i bought some cascade 220 to make the stafford bag from magknits.....i must have started and frogged 5 times before i thought well knickers to you  as a yarn sub you're not cutting it, i'll use you for something else then......so....i started a shrug from fitted knits, and had to frog that twice!!!!!!

its not that i'm a bad knitter honest Smiley  but i really think the yarn hates me..... Embarrassed

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / felted hobo bag on: May 30, 2007 05:02:33 AM
thanks to a wonderful pattern by Pips Purses I was able to create this gorgeous bag.

i used blue faced leicester wool which felted like a dream at 40 degress with only a towel for company....no tennis balls....golf balls or dog chews....

i would definietly make another one....but in a cheerier colour!!!

I'm just frogging my PDQ attempt....sniffle

what went wrong?

I followed the instructions perfectly (or so I thought!!) but the hat turned out soooooo big.  I'm wondering if the wendy wool i used was to thick....i can't buy the wool used in the pattern in the UK. In the picture the hat looks more boxy with straight sides than the one I made, which just got wider and wider on each round - even though the stitch count was right.

I'm a bit stumped now. Anyone any ideas what went wrong?
