The litle trian that could?

I finally made a working copy of the pattern to keep the original one nice, I hope. I dug my bag of supplies out from behind the bedroom door where I set it when I knew I could not get it done in time for what I wanted to have it done for last year. Glad I marked it all back then. =-) Still only one lonely triangle made. =-(

I need to get going. I have some gloves and socks in may carry bag, since this one will be bigger it is my sitting at home project. I just need to stay at home to work on it! Then again I hope to go to knitters club tomorrow evening so it might make the trip again, I am sure I took it when I started it.

Surely was mistaken

I surely was mistaken. I thought that I had to knit 5 tiers. DUH! I surely read that wrong. I'm using 5 colors and the smaller needles, but still have to do the same amount of knitting. I wish I would have read that correctly the first time around. I would have surely knitted with the bigger needles and just purchased more yarn. Did anyone else have this problem or am I slow all by myself? lol

Here is my progress. Did everyone else feel the same way I feel about knitting this bag? I love a challenge. I was so worried about putting it together. So, far I'm not having an issues, but to know Ang and you girls are here I can get through it. Happy Knitting!

A little help please?

Ok, I have looked over the pattern so many times. I know I can follow the actual knit pattern without a problem (I hope!). I'm going to use 5 colors to knit the smaller version of the bag. On page 3 of the pattern, under modules Tier #1, I see it has two rows. I'm not sure how to do this part here, I'm thinking the first row under 5 colors, Modules state 1,2,5,6 then the next row for Tier #1 has 3,4,7,8.
I should knit 4 of the MC=A(blt grey) and CC=E(smoke grey, the base color) for 1,2,5,6 and then MC=B(tan) and CC=E(smoke grey) for 3,4,7,8 then apply the AcAdBcBdAcAdBcBd?

I'm just nervous my first time. I won't bug you about putting them together until I get the 8 knitted. Be back in a day or so!

I am so excited that Michele and I will be knitting our bags together! We can help each other and encourage each other. Since she is waiting for her needles and yarn, I will wait, she has been so kind. Yippee, Skippie, joy, joy! =-) VBG

I Am Ready To Get Going Again =-)

Well Michele has been patiently waiting for me to be ready to re start my bag, which got derailed last year. So I will wait until I hear back from her to get going again. I still have the June/July socks from SixSoxKAL in progress and Karen's gloves that I started and found I had too tight of gage for. So they stalled while I frogged, started the socks I do a row on now and then on them. My goal for the gloves is to have them done before it is cold. Then behind my bag is waiting the Ram horns I wanted to make for a Super Ram Fan Spirit before home coming week. So I better get the bag going again soon. Even though I had wanted to finish one or both before I knuckled down on this one. My sock, dishcloth, bag groups will always have one more pattern I have to make now. =-)Then I need to work on some of my aunts UFO I inherited. =-) The bag can be my home project, while my socks and gloves are smaller travel projects. I even made three baby afghans this year! (The first one I made took me three to four years 20 years ago! So I never started another until this year, thanks to my cousin giving me my aunts yarn and UFO's she had a Grandmother's Favorite baby blanket sized UFO. She had started but not finished, I finished it last year and gave it to her first great grandchild (son), this April when I went up real sudden like.

I even have a row counter ready. =-)I'll be glad to get my Denise needles, cable, put back in the case soon.
