View Full Version : My first project!

04-22-2006, 03:16 AM
I havn't been knitting for long (less than a year) but in that time I hav knitted loads and become quite good!
This was the first thing I knitted and when I finished I was really pleased!
I got the pattern out of a book I can't remember the name of right now so I will post it later. It took me about 6 weeks to complete but it was worth it. The pink wool is part cotton and part synthetic, the white is just a simple wool that is part wool and part synthetic and the silver is lurex thread. I changed the colours and the wool from the original pattern, however it came out exactly the same size as is said! I lined the bag with some cotton fabric to stop the wool stretching.
The hardest part of the bag was the heart because it was the first time I did intarsia. But it looks good and I can now do intarsia without any problem.
So as you can probably guess this is the bag I use to carry my knitting in!
Plz post and tell me what you think, thanks!

last christmas I knitted this pair of gloves! I was really pleased coz I knitted them later in the winter yet was still able to use them loads. I knitted them using regia wool and a pattern, both of which my grandma bought me for christmas. Ii was great timing coz I was going to the lake district on holiday and so I had something to knit for the six hour car journey! I had loads of time to knit when I was up there so the pair only took me a week, what do you think? :D

The hardest part of the bag was the heart because it was the first time I did intarsia. But it looks good and I can now do intarsia without any problem.

I want to do an intarsia heart on my daughter's cardigan.

Did you read up on it somewhere or find a pattern for doing it on your bag?

I'd love some tips before I try intarsia for the first time.

EXCELLENT work by the way. :inlove:
