I just received my kit (of course it's the purple one my favorite color) but for now I will just read the post for those that know me my mom is in the hospital again and I am with her so I wont be able to start the bag yet but I did bring the booklet with me so I can read it through really good. I was thinking I might go with a bigger size needle since I love big bag's
Have fun everyone!
WEll so far so good. I'm about to do row six. When the directions say "after seven rounds"..that does mean after ROW 7 right"? Each row completed is a round? Just double checking. Having a senior moment this morning. How is everyone doing? In my kit it says "Doe" but they gave me "Doe Heather" so I figure thats what they meant to have written as one of the colors.
Celine, I don't have the kit but everyone talking about it makes it tempting. But your reasoning sounds good to me.
Cheryl, I have to admit that all the different charts and the "shapes" make it a bit scary but I'm taking it one step at a time and with help here anyone should be able to do it. I do short rows when I knit my socks which are from the Toe Up so I know how to do those. Plus I've steeked a few sweaters and I actually like hopefully I won't run into any major problems with the bag directions.
I'm sure you will do great!
I'm so impressed with you just jumping in!! I'm still a little chicken... I got the kit in the mail Saturday. Need to get my goal of 5 UFO's done before I cast on, but I'm getting closer to ready!
That is some restraint! How many more UFOs before you can start?
Still 5!!! I meant I was getting closer to being ready mentally!!! hee hee haha
Hey, nothing wrong with that!
yep, After is correct! Doe Heather? That sounds like a misprint on the ballband! I'll have to look into that one.
Mine says Doe Heather, too. :)
So does mine
