Coming along nicely...
Miss Dorothy Mouse
I just finished this lovely mouse, out of Louise Crowther's book: Knitted Animal Friends. It was fun to knit her, and the pattern is extremely well written. Now it's going to be an exciting but hard decision for me which animal to knit next. They are all so cute...
Newbie Knitting Errors
I'm having problems with my first swatch. On the right, the stitches are malformed (should I replace the needle?) (sorry the picture is sideways) and on the left, the yarn is catching somehow (am I not bringing the carriage far enough past the last needle on the left?).
Again, thanks in advance for enlightenment!
Finished crochet bags
Used Bernat yarn
Used Sinfonia yarn
Used sinfonia yarn
Even though I have been knitting for 60+ years I have never been able to make it work and it comes out all lopsided. Any help is totally appreciated.
They all help in their own ways....
What else to do on a 5+ hour car ride? Crochet of course.
But boy mom, that yarn bag sure looks like the perfect place to nap...
An example of blocking
While I had this stretched out on the wires I thought others might like to see a photo of a rectangular wrap blocked. The wires really help to make even edges and sizing. My mat is the click together floor cushion. I use welding wires as recommended on KP years ago. This took 6 wires to block. It is the Diffraction shawl knit in a Hobby Lobby fingering weight nonpill acrylic. This is the wrong side by the way as I was trying to not compress the I cord bind off all around the edge.
Endless Summer shawl
I don't often post pictures of my work on here, but I'm proud of myself from using stash yarn I've had a long time. The yarn is Queensland collection Uluru. It was a little hard to work with but I like the Colors and Maizy the cat seems to like it too
I'd like to ask your opinions on what is the best yarn to use for making a crochet or knitted purse or bag. I know lining and felting will help in giving the bag a better look, but I'm sure the right yarn is important also. I've made a couple crochet bags in cotton yarn and they came out fine. I would like to make a couple more but my stash contains mostly acrylics-- is that a no no? Thanks for any info you may have.
