Aoife's Bag

Which one is better?

Is it better without the flower?

Or with the flower?? Doesn't the flower look like a Ripple potato chip?? Posted by Picasa

White Green Gable Completed

Three skeins of Cotton Fleece. Size L. Added another inch to length and knit straight down with no shaping.

Started out with long-tail cast on and it seems stretchy enough. I was careful to allow some space between cast on stitches on the needle.

This is a great design, but the directions are poorly written.

Estonian Lace Sampler

From Nancy Bush's Estonian Lace workshop which I took a couple of weeks ago. The sample was knit in Joslyn's Fiberfarm Twinkletoes natural sock yarn (wool and mohair) with size 3 needles, and measures about 6 inches across.

A stitch called a nupp is called for in the lily of the valley flower section.

Bound off with double yarn.

Cute, Isn't it?

Here it is with the final touches on it. It is adorable. Final width: 10". Height: 7". Used part of 3 skeins, and have enough for one more. Posted by Picasa

Bermuda Bag Completed

Handspun, and knitted into a bag with handles which I didn't like so the handles were cut off and the bag was attached to handles I found at Minks to Sinks for $2.00. It looks shapeless here but is really quite nice.
