Finished Friday: Big bold granny bag

Finished Friday: Big bold granny bag

My last knitting post was about the progress in my aurora inspired scarf. That one isn’t finished. After a while it gets a bit boring. Great TV knitting but sometimes I like to focus on something else. So between knitting lace I’ve been knitting with super bulky Schachenmayr Bravo Big. Don’t you just love this … Continue reading

WIP-wednesday: felted bag

WIP-wednesday: felted bag

I’ve got my knitting mojo back and I’m using it to use up as much yarn as I can before this year ends. I finished some stashbusting projects and today I’m working on this WIP. This bag is almost done. Just need to finish some details, weave in ends, choose the handles and closing of … Continue reading

Finished-friday: light blue Zpagetti bag

Finished-friday: light blue Zpagetti bag

Yeah I can finally say this hibernation is over. The bag is finished!  Well….finished…I don’t know. Looks like it needs a bit of blocking to get better in shape. The top part on the left and right didn’t look the same so I made a single crochet edge. Still not exactly the same but better. … Continue reading

WIP-wednesday: light blue Zpagetti bag

I’m trying to work every wednesday on one of my WIP’s. Today I’ve chosen my Zpaghetti bag. It’s completely different from the lace shawl I’m working on as this is thick fabric yarn. Zpagetti is the original t-shirt yarn and is recycled from high quality fashion fabrics they get from European textile manufacturers. Hoooked Zpagetti … Continue reading

Finished: my Coco bag

Finished: my Coco bag

This was a very time consuming project because I kept starting over! I wrote about this clutch in January and now I can finally say it’s completely finished. The bag is knitted with Phildar Phil IrisĂ©, a yarn that is discontinued. I bought it in a closing sale with this bag in mind. There is no other … Continue reading

Knittingbag 2.0

Knittingbag 2.0

In 2008 I knitted my own knitting bag to keep my WIP’s together instead of lingering all over the place in plastic bags. Although the bag is big enough it didn’t turn out to be the keeper of all the projects because there are just to many of them. Now it still keeps a few projects … Continue reading

Entrelac bag out of sock yarn

Entrelac bag out of sock yarn

Once upon a time I bought one skein Scheepjes invicta colour . And like with so many single skeins, for a long time I did’t know what to do with it. After many hours searching on Ravelry and after making my first entrelac bag I decided to use this sockyarn to make this entrelac handbag. Due to … Continue reading

Learning entrelac in the round

Learning entrelac in the round

Entrelac knitting is something I wanted to learn for a long time but somehow I never got to it. It seemed to complicated. Since I really like the entrelac projects other people make I decided to give it a go. Thanks to many sources on the internet I learned the principle of knitting entrelac. I … Continue reading

WIP: Coco bag

WIP: Coco bag

As I mentioned before I’ve to much WIP’s lingering around. One of these is the cabled clutch inspired by Coco Chanel. I started this bag in june 2010. Because every other row is a cable row it didn’t knit as fast as a regular cabled project. So it ended up hibernating in my knitting bag. … Continue reading

Free pattern of a square clutch

Free pattern of a square clutch

Part of the Summer Sizzle Stashdown was knitting a hat. I started to knit the Edith Piaf but after knitting about 50% I realised I would never have enough yards to finish the hat. Too bad because I was pushing myself past the 2×2 rib stage. Well, then I thought it would make a nice … Continue reading

Grey cabled bag complimented

Grey cabled bag complimented

While browsing through the bookstore I met a nice lady. I guess  she was about twice my age (wich means she’s about 60-something). As a knitter herself she wanted to compliment my bag. She really loved it so I gave her the information about the pattern. I’ll guess she’ll be making one for herself! Compliments … Continue reading
