thanks for the comments!  Cheesy

i love it to, nice choice of colorss too. does it have a divider in the middle?

no, well , it's actually a large pocket that fills up almost all of the one side, and it kinda opens really wide, so i'm planning to glue on some velcro to keep it shut

I totally have that same fabric! [for some reason this seems really exciting to me]

It was an old sheet that we had around the house forever.  I used some of it for the lining of a bag and I still have a lot left over.  It looks good in pencil case form too! 

haha that's funny. actually mine was from these pillow covers i had bought from Goodwill.. maybe some time ago your sheets and my pilllow shams once adorned the same bed...  Roll Eyes

After exams, finally left me time for some sewing, so here's my new pencil case for the coming semester!

the lining is supposed to be a dark green colour, and i used the awesome zippered pouch tutorial, here:

I really like that triple ribbed scarf and your cables/mittens look good too.  You should start picking out your first sweater pattern Smiley.

lol thanks.  ... my first sweater pattern!! that makes me feel so excited ...kinda like finally becoming ready to ride the bicycle without training wheels!!

Great job! Have you thought about threading a thin (1/4-1/8'') elastic through the rib around the cuff (on the inside) where the rib meets the stocking stitch? That way, your superlarge mittens will stay on!

thanks. that's a good idea but when I realized my mitt was a failure Sad,  i just used up the leftover yarn to make a scarf

yes, it's true.... I'm addicted to KNITTING!!!

During the past few months I've discovered the joy of knitting and actually learned other skills than a "knit" stitch
and I've completed 8 and a 1/2 FOs
so........ here they are! (they're really simple basic projects, nothing exciting or complicated, because I'm a beginner knitter, and these are a few of my first projects!):

White Chunky Wool Scarf:

Skinny Skinny Rainbow Scarf (for a friend's Bday gift):

MultiBlue Triple Ribbed Scarf (Christmas present for dad):

The Convenient Scarf with a Slit (Christmas present for mom):

Stockinette Fringe Scarf:

The Irish Hiking Wristwarmers (my first cable project... super easy!!):


Cable Cellphone Holder:


My First Mittens!!:)

same mittens... it's suppose to be purple


And finally the 1/2 project.. the first attempt and failed superlarge mitt..

(It falls off when you put your arm down)

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

(sorry, it has nothing to do with your post, but I just couldn't resist  Tongue)

p.s. I'm a beginner knitter, and simply addicted!!

thanks for the quick replies!
the gauge tip really helped and as I looked into it more through the internet, i realized one of my biggest mistakes was the needle size! I've never learned the difference between US size and metric size .. heh heh
and my needles actually happend to be twice the size of recommended size.
Mistakes are there so that we can learn from them, don't ya think?  Wink
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted Objects Always End Up TOO BIG!!! ??? on: December 31, 2005 10:01:07 AM

I'm a beginner knitter (about 2 months..) and i've knitte quite a few things already

I've knitted various scarves, and I decided I need a more difficult project to challenge myself, and started

knitting mittens!

(I used the pattern in this post:


(pic also from the link to pattern)

The problem was that they were WAAY TOO BIG!! not just a little loose, when I knitted exactly the way the

pattern told me, the finger part of the mitten was twice the length of my fingers!! Shocked  I even used the child

size numbers just in case! and when i took out the rows to fit the length of my fingers, there was still too

much room in the mitten, that it fell off everytime I'd put it on and stand with my arm down  Sad . I decided

that maybe mittens were too much of a challenge, and tried to knitt these cable wristwarmers (the pattern

seemed easy enough)

Wristwarmers pattern:


(this pic also from link)

 but again, it ended up being too big... and I used one size smaller needles than the pattern offerred!

I'm completely lost as to what is the problem!!? It can't possibly be that I have impossibly tiny hands (trust

me on this one  Tongue) , or is it that I'm knitting WAY too loose??

Any kind of help would be GREATLY appreciated!! thanks!  Smiley
