    Another bag and more .....

    Hi sue and Goose, thankyou very much for your advice, i got my needles sorted and even had a pair of 12mm in my bag, I am going to use mainly dk and one ball of chunky boucle,, how many strands of dk would i have to use on 12mm needles to get the chunky effect and will it work just on 12mm as i dont want to buy 10mm in case it doesnt!! I,ts really great having so much help at the press of a button, many thanks

    Another bag and more .....

    Hi Sue,, i am quite new to the forum and not very adventurous, but i want to try and knit your lovely bag. My question is , the bag looks like it is knitted with chunky wool but you give the wools used as 3ply, 4ply, and some dk.are the needles the thin 10mm and 12mm that are used for dk, and if so how does the end result look "chunky"? Sorry if i sound thick, but i couldnt make it out, i really love the bag and would be so pleased with myself if i did one , as well as using up some stash. thanks sue knittynana (pat)

    Heres one I made earlier.

    hya suzie, have just looked at the picture of the matinee jacket, its lovely, so intricate, i cant follow a pattern like that, if i lost my place, i wouldnt be able to know where i had gone wrong, i would have to be in a room by myself with no one talking to me, well done !!

I also just loved your vintage bag and you have inspired me to get my sewing machine out and make a bag,,as if i havent got enough bags already, but a girl can never have too many bags!! It,s good to get a bargain too as dress fabrics can be quite expensive.
