05-29-2007, 10:01 PM
Hi everyone... i picked up knitting 5 mths ago by learning through the internet (credit goes to knittinghelp.com!!!) & i'm loving every moment spent knitting ..

This is my French Market Bag using Naturally Harmony yarn (10ply).. I plan to put in a lining so that the bag hold its shape for much longer.

The lacy scarf which will come in handy this winter was made using yarn from Lincraft (a craft store in Australia).

The men's scarf made for my husband using 100% pure wool from Vero...

Happy Knitting!!!:cheering:

i'm amazed at how many people have just basically gone to town with different projects after learning. 5 months into it, i was still doing scarves. your FOs look great! i especially love the colors in the men's scarf.

They all look great! I really like the shape of the french market bag, and love the colors in the men's scarf, and I also like the lacy pattern in the cream scarf...there is something to like about all three!

Everything looks wonderful! For your husbands scarf, is that self-striping yarn or did you do that on your own? It's very masculine - I love it!

Very nice work! :cheering:

The French Market Bag has been on my to-do list for a long time. How much does it hold? I thought it'd be larger that it appears to be.

Hi everyone,

Glad u liked my FOs. The yarn which i used for the men's scarf had different color tones in it (is that also termed as self striping?? i'm not sure of this term :) ).

My French Mkt Bag is 8.5" (L) x 6" (H). Width is about 8" ..

i'm working on a baby blankie now and maybe do up a mitten for this winter!!

Happy Knitting

Wow, nice job. I like the market bag and the scarf. The scarf looks hard, but sure is pretty. And colors in the man's scarf are wonderful.

Thanks for sharing.

If that's how your stitching looks after only 5 months of knitting you are WELL on your way!! Nice work!
