Here are some knitting terms, too: http://www.knittingfog.net/dictionary.html

Thanks RedStitch! This link helped a lot too. I think I've got at least the front and back pieces figured out. Can you tell me what kind of yarn you used, how much of it, and what needle size? Thanks!

If you need any help with figuring out the pattern, let me know, I am a Russian speaker. I just do not have time to translate the whole pattern.

I used Gedifra Korfu, bought it at Big Lots for 2.99/skein. Here is how the skein looks:

- I just had a different color. I also used #4 needles. Sorry I can not remember, how much yarn I used. I remember going back to buy more, but I made a purse, too.

Is anyone interested in a knitalong? Should we start a new thread for this top?

How is everyone getting the dowel handles to stay put and not slide  off?

If these walls came crumblin' down
Fell so hard, to make us lose our faith
From what's left you'd figure it out
Still make lemonade taste like a sunny day

I put a little super glue on the last few wraps of yarn on the dowel.  I basically glued the yarn to the dowel.

My ode to the cabled handbag.  I made it for easter (hehe made me feel like a little kid with it!) with cream colored reynolds lopi.  I think.  Hehe.  I lined it with lavender flowery fabric and a tiny little pocket for what-not!  And here she is!:


Step one:  Collect Underpants
Step two:  ? ? ?
Step three:  Profit!

I'm new to this and need help with the cables...I'm trying but it's making me crazy. Do you do the same on every row? By the fifth row I start over because they look so odd/ or off.

You only do the twist part of the cable every few rows- it depends on how tight you want them to be. Usually it varies from 4-10 rows. I like to do every 4 rows for small cables (about 4-6 stitches wide), and anywhere between 8-10 for the larger cables.

I absolutely <3 Craftster!

...By the way,has anyone seen my dpns...?

Here's mine:

I didn't have a cable needle, so I just used a cuticle pusher.  Grin  Cables are easier than I thought they'd be.

this is so adorable  Smiley
Wish I had one
