View Full Version : Brea Bag

10-13-2007, 12:15 AM
Well, I've just finished blocking the Brea Bag I made over the summer. In four years of knitting, this is only the second thing I've ever blocked because I hate to do it. I know I'm supposed to, but most of the things I've made have been okay without it. Not this, though. I needed to block before seaming.

Here are some pictures (Sorry if the flash makes it hard to see). I did it in Cascade 220 in charcoal gray for winter, because there weren't any good colors in the Alpaca, and I think once it's all done it will be nice. So what if my gusset is 4" too long. :whistle: hehe.

Here's the pattern:

That looks wonderful. How many people are going to take a measuring tape to the gusset? Not one, so don't worry about it.

I will definitely post again. I need to get a button and figure out how to do the clasp, and then I'll post a pic of the FO! :)
