Dumpling Bag!

Hi all... I just love the cute Dumpling Bag that Sharon has in the Fall IK and had to make one right away. After making this I thought about doing daisies instead of the swirls for embroidery, but will have to try that on the next one! The little recipient of this will be thrilled as she loves pink & purple and her big sister is getting a bag I made, too.

Yet ANOTHER Carie Lynn joins the family...

Well having knit 3 Carie Lynn bags, I thought I was done... but my 6 1/2 yr old goddaughter is a new knitter (and doing remarkably well!) and every time she sees mine she tells me how beautiful it is and how some day she wants to be able to knit like me...

So I made her one with hot pink and turquoise... so I call it my Child's Bright Carie Lynn. I used Cascade 220 (doubled) and it make a great child-sized version.

Happy Knitting!!

Carie-Lynn done!!

Well it's been a while since I've done a She-Knits bag, but here's the latest Carie-Lynn


Made with Valley Yarns Berkshire held doubled (less than 2 oatmeal and green, 2 complete chocolate). Didn't shrink too much in felting, but I wanted to keep the stitch definition of the cables and moss/seed stitch panels.

My Finished Bags

Here are my Robin wristlets.

The second one was much easier with the intarsia. I was not totally in love with embroidery at the end, but it made a big difference. They were both gifts and the recipients loved them!

Hi all! Here is my finally finished Melly Bag. I started working on it in November, but couldn't finish it because of dye lot problems at Brown Sheep. Sharon saved the day for me and got me what I needed to finish it, so now I have an awesome Black and Red She-Knits creation! I couldn't be happier. I think the Marly Bag will be next on my list...or maybe Carie Lynn...or maybe...

I finished the Marly bag. Loved this pattern. Now I REALLY want the Toothpick Optional bag. I'm going to get it as a reward for cleaning my house. I better hurry up then because I want to work on it soon!

Two new bags

A Carie Lynn bag and another Bigbag...or not so big bigbag. I am very pleased with them both even if they are a little smaller than Sharon intended by the pattern. But I used other yarns and smaller needles, and these came out the perfect size that I like for bags.

Its been a bit...heeerrreees (another) Melly

Hi everybody- I finished, what I think will be my last Melly Bag to go to the boutique I sell out of. The nice thing is everytime one sells, and this is now the 5th one I have made for sale, I replace it with a new one with slightly different colors. I love Melly, and I am glad she sold but honestly 5 of them is ENOUGH, I am a little sick of her success....well, not really...however you knitters kow what I many times can you do the samey samey same.

Melly Black Light Gray

I have finished a new pattern of a wonderful bag that has slip stitching and cabling and texture and and and... unfortunately I can't show you as that is the rules when you submit a pattern for potential I am just a big tease. I am working on finishing up a pattern for a messenger/laptop bag which should be done soon.

Last think I wanted to show you was my Dream Floral bag, which I haven't written the pattern for it however if anyone is interested perhaps you should e-mail me privately and let me know.
