xtina’s complusions to obsessively knit

Happy (belated) Birthday and a Greek Festival June 23, 2007

I finally finished Lara’s belated birthday gift; Knit 2 Together’s Doctors bag. Here’s a picture of of the finished project product and the recipient.


Finished Doctor’s Bag


I must say, while I think the bag came out pretty well I’m not completely happy with the overall results; it’s really my own fault. I didn’t really concern myself with gauge so the bag is a lot smaller than it was supposed to be. I used 3 and about 1/8 skeins of Lamb’s Pride Worsted in Blue Flannel (I really wanted Lamb’s Pride Bulky but I couldn’t find the color I wanted), 2 pairs of Susan Bates size 11 24inch circular needles, 1 pair of straight bamboo handles, 1 pair of bamboo handles, 3/4 yards of fabric and a 2 inch button.

Here are some more detailed pictures:

I would make this bag again but I would change a few things: I would definitely get a bulky yarn and check my gauge 🙂

On a non-knitting note, last night my friends Lara, LuAnne and I went to a Greek festival in Watertown. Despite the rain, we had a lot of fun and some really good food. Here are some pictures of us and and really good Greek food we had:

I have more knitting news but that will come later this weekend.
