View Full Version : FO's : Cabled purse, and beret

07-08-2006, 01:03 AM
I knitted a cute cabled purse for my mom for Mother's Day. Lined it and everything!

Unfortunately it didn't turn out as well as I hoped... the handles didn't match each other perfectly for some reason. Also, my sewing skills suck so sewing the lining in... well, it ain't a pro job, that's for sure!

But my mom was required to love, seeing as how it was a gift from me. :)

Pics here (yarn used was Lamb's Pride bulky superwash) :

I also used the same yarn to (attempt to) make myself a beret. Unfortunately, I didn't make it big enough, so it looks more like a poorly fitting hat. Sigh... so it hit the frog pond this afternoon, and it will hopefully enjoy life as a hat for my toddler. Pic of the beret, may it rest in "make me look like a goofball" peace :


Somehow I didn't take a picture of it flat before I frogged it! So this crappy pic of me wearing it is all I have... no documentation of my first beautiful lines of decreases for a hat! Ah well... it was eager to hit the frogging pond.

Thanks for looking![/img]

That purse is wonderful - and like Hild said better to use the yarn for something you'll actually use!

I like them.....agree with hilde, better frogged than never worn. I'm sure we will be seeing the reincarnation of beret in the near future ;)
