View Full Version : FO- Sara Bag

02-23-2006, 12:03 PM
This bag was made with WOTA liliac and tulip. I doubled the bottem to make it stronger and did some dec and inc randomly to give the bag more of a square-ish shape. I think that the pick and purple were too similar because it is hard to see Sara's name on the pocket so I may get some darker purple and needle felt her name... maybe. Anyway here is my very first item designed by me! :happydance:

Very Pretty! I have a dd named Sara, spelled without the 'h'. Did you just graph out the name before knitting it? I love it! :thumbsup:

Very pretty! I love both of them.

I'm curious about how much difference there is when using a double strand for the bottom. I've only ever used one strand. This helps a lot then?

Thanks all! All that I did was type her name in word, made it the size that i wanted her name to be, saved it then uploaded it here (http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/). That site automatically puts it into a graph that you can save and print. It actually was not as hard as I thought that it would be I just had to pay closer attention than I did with the bag part. The bottem is sturdier double stranded than with only one strand. I like it this way better than the single strand. Next time I may try use two strands all the way up. :thinking:

Gah bags are addicting!

Cate: I will get right on that bag for you ;)

I'd love to know how to do the name/lettering too.

(Maybe I'll start with single initials :blush: )
