Zigzag bag – the final chapter

After rejecting this lining:

I settled on this cotton fabric.

Tracing the outline of the lining.

Cutting out the lining with my snazzy Fiskars rotary cutter.

The lining.

Mattress stitching the side seam of the bag.

Crocheting up the bottom of the bag.

MANY pins were used to pin the lining in place. It was a bitch.

All done!

Specs:
Zigzag bag kit (purchased at 2004 KW Knitter’s Fair)
5 balls Noro Kureyon 92, with lots of leftovers
Denise needles, US 8
Start date: September 16, 2004
Finish date: September 28, 2004

Quick, fun, and functional! Lining it was tricky, though.

After Denny graciously wove in the ends on my Bella cardigan, all I had left to do was crochet around the neckline and front edges. Neckline, check. I did have problems with single crocheting along the fronts – I tried about three times, but every single time it was wavy and puckery. I think it looks fine left as is, if a bit roll-y.

It’s a bit big. And not as shapely as I was going for. It’s my own fault, I really should have realized that not doing the (minimal at best) suggested shaping on the front pieces would cause the piece to just hang straight down. I’m not, however, going to rip just to add shaping. I’ll have to figure out something clever – I’ve tried a few things but we’ll see what else I can come up with tomorrow. It’s good otherwise, a nice length, comfy, pretty. If not for the shapelessness….plus the sleeves are a little short for me, even though I lengthened them by a few inches. Anyway, it’s in the wash right now, and should shrink a bit (hopefully the sleeves won’t shrink too much…sigh).

I did keep my no-knitting vow today, even though it drove me a bit nuts. I’m in the midst of lining the zigzag bag, which should turn out very nicely indeed.

Tomorrow I’ve got an archery lesson at 6:30 even though my classes end at 2, so I’ve got some time to kill. Maybe I shouldn’t bring knitting, as to force me to read instead…

Yes, I get stumped sometimes too…

How exactly would one pick up and purl? Any ideas?

(update on knitting: I’m at the back armhole shaping, so just a few rows away from knitting straight down the back 15″. Unfortunately, my left hand is feeling a bit tingly, so I’m going to try and take the day off actual knitting tomorrow.)

ramblings added at 1:56 – currently thinking about the tartan jacket (again). There’s the yarn issue – do I wait until the yarn comes in (which seems like it could be a loong while), cheat and check if romni or village yarns has it (which makes me feel so bad…maybe someone else could get it for me and I could pay them back?), or change the colours? I’d consider doing it all in the main colour (spice, but I’d have to make sure we still have more, as I currently only have 7 skeins of it), or maybe two colours…like red and black. or red and charcoal.

Also, I have a sizing issue. The given finished sizes are 36″, 38.5″, 41.5″, 46.5″, 52″. As it’s a coat, I’ll definitely need some ease. But 41.5″ seems a little too small and 46.5″ way too big. A 43″ or thereabouts would be perfect. Do I go mucking about with figuring out the numbers for an in-between size? A smart thing to do would be to measure the bust of my winter coat, which is fairly snug. I should do that. Yeah, this is the kind of thing I think about in the middle of the night.

Someone’s made the jacket already…
