ok now...looks like i am the last one left at the party...?



anyway - i finished and felted last night it turned out great with one exception: my handles are cockeyed. one side is centered where it should be, but the other is a little too much off to the side. ah well - hand crafted indeed.

hey jackie

great to finally meet you! your son is a sweetie!

i hope this works - trying to share the photo i just took. the bag is from a multi colored cascade 220 [or maybe it is not called 220] yarn. i love the way it felted - it looks fuzzier in real life than the photo.

i want to add a magnet closure or something. i might make another and may try that whole flap thing...we'll see :LOL

I finally got started on my Sophie! Yippee!

I didn't make it to get any Cascade 220, so I'm using some Fisherman's...kool-aid dyed in shades of peach/pink.
I think it should come out nicely.

I also don't have a 16" 10.5 circ, so I'm using an 11.

I shall keep y'all updated.

Jen, your bag rocks!
I started and finished my Sophie bag it is yet to be felted... but it's Cascade 220 in red with a brown bottom, and side pockets I'll get over to Joi's magic felting machine sometime this week and then post a pix.

So, what is our next KAL, ladies?

Update...

I'm about 3/4 finished with the bottom of my bag.
It was *really* hot & humid here today (93 degrees) so I wasn't into knitting that much.

Jen...
Your bag is awfully purty!

Update #2~

I finished the bottom and have picked up all the stitches.

I will be placing markers today and start the knitting-in-the-round part.

...looks like it's gonna be another blistering hot day again here, so I'm not sure how much knitting I'll get done.

OK - I'm finished the 34 rows for the bottom & I don't understand the pattern from this point forward.... Well, I understand it once I start doing the round part, but not the pick up & k 16, etc.

Can anyone explain or point me to a place that can explain?

Thanks so much!!!!

You're going to pick up the stiches along the edges of the bag to end up all the way around. Hmmm I don't know how to explain it!

How have I missed this thread? I've had my eye on this pattern for a year or so. I made mine bigger because it's my mama's b-day present and she wouldn't like the smallness of the original. I'm done with all but the handles...I have to force myself to do a few rows a day. The best part was I used a fibonacci sequence for the stripes (learned about through the knitlist) which made it a lot less boring.

If anyone want's a peek there are pics on my current blog entry...link in my sig.

: Still working on the bottom... I've put aside my wool projects recently because it's just been too dang hot! I may bring it to NC and work on it there.

Everyone's I've seen so far look awesome!!! I'm glad there are still some of us not finished... :LOL

I'm estimating that I'm halfway done now.... DH said, "Wow - it DOES look like a bag...or a hat?" : :LOL

This is a fun & easy project. I see many more in my future. But bigger. I think it's gonna be a little teeny for my tastes.

Laura,
I am currently making the Sophie bag...but much larger.
I doubled the pattern....so far so good.
It does look HUGE...but of course this is before felting it.

I agree with the original pattern for the Sophie Bag...it is rather small....but it will be a great gift at xmas time. (and a quick knit at that!)

I love your bags!! Can anyone put up what they look like felted?
I think I am going to branch out from soaker to make this bag. Since I am new to knitting & all I have ever knitted are soakers I am sure I will have questions. I hope that is ok.
Question 1: Will Classic Merino Wool work instead of Cascade 220? I was thinking of this Yarn

Christina I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you find peace, and that you are surrounded with love in your family. I hope that knitting can bringyou some peace also. :
Here is a link to a pix of my first finished Sophie. I haven't felted this newest one yet.

Thank you Chiromama.

Your bags are too cute! I posted comment on your blog, I say keep the bag you made your sister, make her another.

I just saw your comment. It's a simplicity (or simplishity if you ask me) pattern.. # 8331 http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm?...43&StartRow=31 But you could probably make it up and have less trouble.

It's felted & dry - and I'm using it today! I will take pictures tonight & put 'em up.

It didn't shrink up nearly as much as I thought. I was thinking of giving it another go through the washer tonight.

I used Peace Fleece on 10.5 needles - used less than one skein AND is bigger than the finished dimensions, so I'm happy with the size OR it could even be a tad smaller.

Now - just have to figure out what to make next.

In the meantime, I'm making yet another Homespun Two Hour Scarf for a holiday present. (Boring!)

I started this a few days ago for my mom. I'm on about round 27-28 so I'm getting pretty close to being done. I think I'm going to make a bigger one for ME next.....Very easy to knit!

Well I am done with the bottom and am several rows into my doubled up Sophie, but I think I am going to run out of yarn... So I am putting it on hold until this weekend when I should be able to afford one skein of something interesting to finish it up. Since I am buying another skein, I may try to finagle a flap and pocket.

So no more updates until next week.. til then I am going to see how many Warm Up America squares I can whip up.
