now for the crochet

Sunday, January 23, 2005

Well the knitting part is done and now that the ritual photo inside the bag is also done it is time to break out the Crochet Stitch Bible and pray.

Before I forget

  • my provisional cast on worked beautifully.
  • I can finally do kitchener stitch without consulting Knitty’s wonderful how-to (my tension is improving too).
  • and finally, I know it won’t matter post felting but I am much happier with the fully fashioned decreases (and increases) I did for the handles on this bag. It seems I am straying further and further from the pattern each time…

Hi, this is my first comment, I found your blog recently and have been watching your progress on the bag.

I love the colours; they are much nicer than the colours I am currently using for my bag. I especially like the double stripe around the middle, I may have to steal that idea.

Knitting in summer, but nitpicking college composition students in the school year!

Can you give advice on yarn-age amounts on these marketing bags?
I want to use Lamb’s Pride (lovely stuff from Nebraska farmland). How do I think in terms of both weight and length? Can I just go by the length of the yarn?

You can make a nice Mason-Dixon bag from three skeins….does the French market bag need about 5?
