Onward Ho!

Ok... so back to this bag. I have started this several times but I am going to start it once again. I am working on it once again. I have finished several of the flowers with no problem but after learning about how Muench Touch Me felts I am re thinking about my roses. I have made them with Cascade 220 Blood red but I think that the Touch Me would be awesome. Ok... if anyone has any questions please ask away! ~ Enjoy.

P.S. - I hope to post a current photo of my progress again.

Soooo Many NEW MEMBERS!!!

I am trying to get you all on the board but please have patience with me!!! I will soon be adding our "Blogger" user names to the name list on in the side bar so we can tell who is talkin'! We are going to have such fun!!!

For those of you that don't have the pattern yet here are a few links to purchase it!
Jimmy Beans Wool
Dream Weaver Yarns
Royal Yarns

All of these online stores have the Vogue Knitting Winter 2004/05 magazine for around $5.99 (great price, there are other good patterns in this issue!) that the pattern is in. Also you can check with your local yarn shop (LYS) to see if they still have it but maybe it is not on the shelves!

Here is a picture of what the cover looks like!

I hope this is a bit of help!!!

To All of the NEW members

Hi everybody!!! Here are a couple of notes so I don't have to e-mail you all individually!

The Pattern:I DO NOT have extra copies of this pattern and I am no longer able to send the PDF of the pattern out. The reason is that this pattern is for sale and it is not fair to give it away to everyone. You can purchase back issues of Vogue Knitting from their website (all of the pattern info is on the right) and e-bay is always a good place to look!

Knitting Level: This is not a beginner's pattern. The trellis pattern is tricky and there is a lot of counting to do in regards to the decreases.

Other then that have fun and post any problems or questions you have here!!!

I am still Alive....

And I am pickin' up the needles! I have put this bag on the back burner for a long time now but because of a bunch of ladies wanting to get involved with the knit-a-long I am ready to pick my needles up again!!! I have one and a quarter sides done and I have made a little picture that helps with the decreases...I will post that ASAP! Thanks all for resparking my interests!

I finially got all my yarn!

After a long wait… I finially picked up the rest of my yarn last night.   I now have enough to start the basket.  I was missing the green to variegate my trellis.  I am so happy now that I can get back to my bag.  This will be a work in progress.  Here are my stats so far:

Needles: US#19 Long Straight  Rosewood for bag and US#19 Short Straight Rosewood for Roses and Leaves
Trellis Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Kiwi and Cascade 220 Heather Green (variegating both yarns at the same time)
Roses: Manos Flam and Cascade Blood Red
Background: Galway Black
Leaves:  Lamb’s Pride Kiwi and Cascade 220 Heather Green (mixing the 2 colors and doing some just by them selves)

I was going to do my bag in the round after reading Fmarr’s version in Knitter’s Review  but after looking at photo’s of those bags I think I am going to go with the original pattern.  Working in flat and seaming the sides.  

I will post pictures once I begin again.  
Stay tuned for my adventures of my knitting experience on the Vogue Felted Bag.

Progress on my bag

Ok… Progress on my bag is zero.  I am waiting on getting one more yarn before knitting anymore.  Once I began the bag with what I thought was all the yarn I needed with exception of the leaf color yarn, I discovered that the yarn I was going to use for the leaves I am actually going use the yarn varigatedin the trellis so I am going to have to wait until at least until the 11th of December when I can get enough of the yarn.  I have made 10 of the roses with Manos Flame and Cascade 220 but I am almost out of the Cascade 220 Red. Since they are variegated I did not worry about Dye Lot.  Once again this is another yarn that I will be picking up on my Yarn Adventure on December 11th.  

Ok so about the Yarn Adventure:  Many of you might know or not know about this great little store in North Hollywood.  Well the Stitch Café is going to be having a Open House from 5 – 8 pm on December 11th.  Since the store is about 120 miles from my house we have decided to make it an adventure out.  Several of us will be venturing down to the store.  My main goal is to come home with Cascade 220 Heather Green and Cascade 220 Blood Red for my bag but who knows what else I will find down there.  Hey Sue, you should come to it.  I know that it is later in the day but we would love to see you there also.  Christy, Kelly and I are planning to be there at 5pm and then depending on the damage to our check book we will either be having Carls Jr or Olive Garden (like I said depending on the damage we do.  It seems that, that can happen so easily.  

Well onward and forward… waiting for the yarn… ho hum I shall be a knitting fool once I get the yarn...
