Sun Satchel
This circular bag is a fun adventure in felting and simple colorwork. Two circles are worked outward from the center to create a graphic sun motif. Then, the sides of the bag and strap are knit in one continuous piece and seamed to the two sun circles before felting. Optional afterthought pockets store belongings inside the bag while a button and loop secure the top flap for a semi-circular look.
Finished Measurements: 22″ / 56cm diameter before blocking. 16″ / 41cm diameter after blocking. The size of the finished bag can vary depending on how severely it is blocked.Yardage: Color A – 375yds / 343m (includes optional pockets) Color B – 620yds / 567mNotions: tapestry needle, 1.5” / 4cm button

Another sweater off the pile but this one still needs buttons.

Knee High Socks

OK so I am working through my pile of almost finished garments.  These only needed for the ends to be darned in so I made a start on them first.

I had only ever made one pair of sock before making these.  They were 100% pure wool, I didn’t use elastic so they lost their shape and they kept on falling down.  Luckily they were only ankle socks, but it still pissed me off.  They were DK also and I made them with left over yarn from a dress that I made that the moths ate for lunch.  This is how I learnt that there is nothing warmer on your feet that pure wool socks so I wore them to death! 

These are made from a pattern that I borrowed.  I don’t like the finishing at the toe, it looks awful because I didn’t know the technique that the pattern said to use and it didn’t give any instructions past naming it (I have now corrected that problem); although it doesn’t look so bad when you have them on.

They are made using DK yarn (from my stash) and the original pattern is for stripes but I also made them with just one colour. 

I think I’ll try some of my other sock patterns next time.  I have some in my collection of Vogue Knitting Magazine editions and I downloaded some free ones off the Internet.

Over the last view years I began hearing the term ‘sock yarn’.  So I began an investigation to find out exactly what this new yarn had to offer and I discovered that it didn’t have that much.  The only difference in this yarn in the weight, which is light.  This I suppose is an asset if you want to get your shoes on but I thought that it was elasticated, so don’t really see the point of it.

When I made these socks I only had one roll of elastic, so I only used it on the ribbing.  After wearing them which I haven’t done yet I will know if this is sufficient or if it would be better to use it throughout.  I’ll hold off making some new ones until I have done this.

And one more for luck! =)

You know I have both of these albums on cassette.  It is about time I transferred them to digital.

Wait…what -  you don’t know who The Breeders are…let me help you!?
