OK Ingrid lets see what you have for this one!

hahaha^.

thank you for all the help with diff. stuff and now helping me find a pattern. so i have picked this one

but at the bottom it starts talking about measuring out seams and triangles and and and…
what ae they talking about??

I love a challenge!

When you knit this bag, it looks like you knit it in the round and then seam the bottom. But in order to make the bottom flat, you pull out the ends of the seams to the sides and sew across in the other direction–that makes the triangles in the picture. You do this part on the inside of the bag. Actually, it reminds me of a paper grocery bag. Can you picture it?

ummm kind of?

it is so i knit in the round, and then bottom is open so i have to put it together, but i dont no anythign about seaming at all.

the seaming will put it together though? could i technically make a round patch andknit it on?..if so how do i make a round/oval shaped patch?

I’m sure there’s a way to knit a round patch–lots of increases–but I’m not sure exactly how off the top of my head.

These are some patterns that look roundish with actual knitted bottoms.

As for seaming the other one, since it’s felted, you can just sew it together.

There are some wonderful bags posted in the Recently Finished section, you could “shop” there, too.

I made up a bag pattern once and did it the exact way you are saying…the triangle way. you bring in the bottom seam to look like a ’ Y ’ and sew it up.

:roflhard:

All hail St. Ingrid! :notworthy:

Ingrid… you are either going to have to start wearing some knitted saintly looking robe or a super-suit with a cape and a big I on the front… and I’m not sure which.

[size=2]I swear we should have a contest called… “Stump St Ingrid”[/size]

Aaah! But I have been stumped. Someone wrote in to see what a lead stitch is–I haven’t the slightest idea!

I think I’ll make my suit Fair Isle! :thinking:

Hey! Even Superman is deathly allergic to Kryptonite!

:roflhard:

You do have a point! :roflhard:

Ingrid,

I don’t know what the lead stitch is either. :??

Gonna be interesting to see if we get an answer. :thinking:

Silver? Amy?

Ingrid… if I only knew 10% of what you know about knitting… I’d still be 10 times smarter (at least) about knitting than I am now.

Looking forward to seeing the super-suit! :roflhard:

You know 100% more than you did a year ago! :roflhard:

The ‘suit’ is on my to-do list :— Maybe when I’m in the nursing home–then they’ll attibute the project to senility! :wink:
