Well, I’ve been knitting so much this week!
I’ve been able to finish a super cute bag using cables, and rosettes…adorable! BUT…at this point, it’s kinda top secret, so I can’t show a picture. But I can tell you…I LOVE IT! 🙂 I’ve been carrying it around this weekend as my purse, just to try it out, and it’s been everything I’d hoped! It’s really roomy, too, which is a nice change from my last bag. I kept having to cram everything in just right to get it all to fit. Everyone I met kept complimenting me on my new purse. That is a very satisfying feeling. 🙂
And today, I finished the February LAL’s I had signed up for…Isela’s Cable Mittens, and Karen’s Half Fingered Gloves. I kinda reworked each idea into a mesh of both. This is what I came up with.
The fingers were knit up using the little bitty sock loom from DAlooms…I’ve had that idea for a while, and wanted to give it a shot. It worked pretty well, except the tension needs to be kept very loose to avoid being too tight on the fingers. I’m fairly satisfied as a whole, just a few things here and there to tweek for next time. I love the cable cuffs…perfect touch! Thanks to Isela and Karen for sharing their projects! You Rock! 🙂
I have a pair I was working on that are unfinished using the same concept, LOL! I need to try your yarn choice since mine wasn’t working out the greatest. I have a mini loom with 12 pegs that would work better, I bet. It’s regular gauge and would maybe match up better with the KK. I got it from here. Great job!
