完成啦!!Fashion cable knit bag

Picture from Micheal's-對照組 Picture from Ro-實驗組







This is it!! I spent so much time to look for the right yarn for it. Because the yarn is from the US so I couldn't find exactly the same yarn here. after I found the yarn, start looking for bag handles. It's so unbelieveable how expensive they are in the UL Even it's ugly it costs 6 pound. But I found some on ebay which is 10 pounds for 5 pairs. But the good news is I found a very nice and good quality one. I reckon I would use it after all( although it's not cheap..)


就是這個包!讓我找毛線就找很久了,因為是美國的pattern,所以那個毛線英國沒有賣..所以最後在john lewis買tensiony最接近的rowan big wool,之後找把手..英國的把手竹製的醜不垃圾也要6英鎊(大概四百塊台幣!)但是ebay可以買到五付六百塊.重點是我找到一個木頭的很美..所以應該會用那個!(當然也是很貴..)

I also found the ribbon. so..what do I need? now... I need time and I haven't realize some part of the pattern.


緞帶也找到了!現在缺什麼~~缺東風...缺時間跟缺卡在某一部...


It is not an easy pattern for me but thank God I found someone who had made it before and she was so nice to explain the pattern for me. This is laso the first time I try to knit with 2 strands. I learned a lot by searching on internet.


這個包一開始要先打14排的stocking stitch(一排下針一排上針,我想應該是重複這樣七次)再來要換粗一點的針並且用兩股打...我不會啦....=.=所以現在要等善心人事出現教我打我才有辦法進行下一步了....@@


=====================
4/4
It is surprising fast after started yesterday. after 14 rows of stocking stitches it will be 6 times repeat the pattern I've finished 2.5 times.( Just used my yarn up!!! I can't wait to go home now again!!) I hope I can finish it before next week. then I can show it to my mom in law and she can help me how to do lining and handles with both 2 bags.


昨天開始打之後速度真是飛快~~14排stocking stitches之後就是六次重複12排的pattern兩天我已經打了兩次半(現在ㄧ顆毛球被我打光所以又是迫不及待的想要回家阿!!!) 希望下禮拜去找婆前可以打完,這樣我可以跟他現我的包!而且也可以依並把我的內裡跟提把縫好~~~


p.s.
第一次發現記數器的重要性,第一次把14排打成單數結果全部前後相反..挖哩勒...第一次也不知道所以打了好幾排才全部拆掉..好想哭....麻花好難打ㄟ...嗚嗚嗚....


I realize how important a counter is. The first time I knitted the 14 rows of stocking stitches. I made a mistake(either 15row or 13row) so it ends up inside out. so undid it.. Maybe I do need one.
When you are in the middle of the pattern, you might find it seems something wrong. it's not so balanced. but keep knitting you'll find it will back to normal. This is what I found.


這個pattern打到一半會覺得好像打錯因為中間的差差會交叉...(我再補上照片)但其實不要擔心繼續打下去..因為我回去對照片,其實整個包包就是這樣...打到一半好像沒對襯打完看又好了...好神奇的包阿!!!是個看起來很難但打起來還好的包..最麻煩是在打麻花...-.-


I don't know why the hole will become smaller everytime I redo it.( Does it only happen to me?) I was too eager to knit it even on the train so I couldn't help take it out to knit. But it wasn't easy to knit on the trian, especially when I need cable needle most of the time.


線只要拆過就會容易必猜並且洞會變很小,我今天在火車上忍不住的拿出來打,但因為要把線順好又要把胖胖的針努力塞到洞裡面..真是一整個不順~~~~我不應該在火車上打的....(應該說我昨天不該一邊打一邊看日劇否則我會及早發現我打錯了....)哀...第十五排還沒結束呢....=.="真不知道自己在幹麻

After a weekend. I nearly finished it. I started by a very short needle.(23cm) That's why I needed to sqeeze 79 stitches into them. so I found it's quite small. the width is about 34cm, the length is not long enough to fit in A4 size paper. so I decide to knit 1 more time of the pattern to make it bigger. I think it looks perfect size for me now. I realize how important to do gauge first now.


經過一個週末, 我終於快要完成啦!!由於剛開始我只有短針,所以我的79針必須跟擠大腸ㄧ樣縮在短針裡, 禮拜六收到長針後我就換了,但還是比預期的40cm少了很多...只有34cm左右,長度也不夠..所以我多縫了ㄧ次,現在可以勉強裝入a4,不過縫了內裡就不知道會怎樣,我感覺我是打的比較緊了些,所以我下ㄧ步要來拉拉樂,看能不能把寬度拉鬆一點, 不過現在的比例我很滿意...所以打東西前先確定gauge還是很重要的! 哀~~


I don't know will I make another one because it's quite difficult to knit!!Because of so many twisting, I wasn't sure if I knit it right or not. Only found when you looked back....but..it's too tired to undo it. I used 2 strands of yarn to knit it, so it's easy to split th eyarn if I undo it, which annoys me so much. Do I compromise now? Start to accept being not perfect??? I think I will look like a freak to carry a yarn bag under 30 degree sunlight!!!


我不知道我還有沒有力氣打第二個ㄟ~因為真的是ㄧ個打了很累的包包...而且因為捲來捲去很難確定自己有沒有打錯..都打了好幾排才發現..阿天ㄚ~~剛剛錯了..但我沒勇氣拆了...因為這個包拆起來把打更累(因為兩股所以更容易必猜~~~)我這樣算是跟命運屈服嗎?開始接受不完美???


I finished the last 14rows of the project!!! I hope I can finish the lining when we back to Stratford this weekend! I hope mom will not be too busy( Praying!!) and in this way, I can "SHOW" it off when I back to Taiwan next Month! But.. people say it's very hot there now.


我昨天把包包最後的14排上下針打完了喔!!所以等周末見到婆就可以逢內裡了!!喔耶!!!希望他不要太忙(祈禱中!!!!)這樣我回台灣就可以拿我的包ㄟ!!!(超酷的啦!!)但聽說台灣現在熱的要命...@@拿毛線包應該很像神經病吧!!!


週末見到婆最開心的就是要學習怎麼做內裡,先到stratford買了一塊布,因為是新手所以就沒有買太好的,我特意挑了格子布,原本只是想說比較不容易髒,後來發現剛好的在裁剪時可以對線!真是方便呢!!開始學才內裡才知道功夫偵多呢,要先用pin別好,然後用線縫個大概,最後在用裁縫機,真的縫好後再把原本縫個大概的線拆掉~~然後內裡裁好後開始用毛線縫包包兩邊,縫好用線縫內裡,然後再用毛線縫把手~~還好有婆婆在,所以他都有技術指導一下,否則我第一次縫內裡縫錯了,縫把手時也不對...終於一切都搞定後,發現我三八買的緞帶太厚,所以穿不過去.(雖說是1.5in但要軟布)我買時有猶豫一下,但我覺得硬布的緞帶看起來比較高級..不過anyway,我只缺緞帶我已經開始每天拿了!管他的~~沒緞帶也很美啦!

Hi There,

I just wanted to respond to the comment you left on my blog about the shoulder warmer pattern. I haven't actually made that myself, but I took a look at the pattern:

Then knit 3 rows stockinette st, decreasing 28 sts evenly distributed on the 2nd row = 216 sts – do not dec over the 3 edge sts at each side.

It sounds like you knit one row in stockinette, then on the second row you have to decrease 28 stitches overall, but don't decrease within the 3 edge stitches on either side. This means you will decrease one stitch every 8.5 stitches (244-6)/28=8.5

Hope this helps! I'd love to see the finished object!

RO,
這個包真美,也真佩服你的耐心
換成我要包就買現成的
雖然前一陣子差點兒很衝動買夏紗回來
還好理智上還是很克制

我也打好女兒的蝴蝶巾了
現在正在努力兒子的....
有空來我家瞧瞧唄

這個包其實開始打了之後就不難啦!!(突然發現很多作品都這樣..=.="_
冬天很適合揹喔~~我可是一直提他出門直到六月才乖乖收起來呢!!

我在michaels 也看到這包,覺得挺好看的,我覺得你打出來的成品真的很棒,讓我又心動了一次...

謝謝讚美唷~那天倫敦好意外得出太陽所以照片照的很好~其實~我還在努力找緞帶中,第一次買了satin的穿不過去(因為包包打太緊了) 這一次買了比較柔軟的布但一直很懶都沒補上去!補完再照照片!

現在很想再來打一個墨綠色的ㄟ~不過不知道什麼時候會有力氣打!

我是用rowan的big wool...
