"twiggy tweed" sightings

twiggytweedBEAUTY.jpgso the new issue of knitty is online, and my pattern “twiggy tweed” goes into the archive…

which also means i get to use the pattern wherever i want to, post it online, get it published…. hmmm…

and speaking of, i found some bloggers who knit it!
check it out!

Sparkley Knitting Needles – Oct 27th post
A Stitch in Time  - Sept 16th post
The Twisted Knitster – Oct 10th post
Neveth’s blog – Oct 3rd post

the purse also got into the knitgeek squidoo… have you tired squidoo?   it’s really fun, you find alot of cool things on that site…

it got some bad reviews too!   check this one and this one
hahaha, yes, i do hate i-cords, they’re messy,
and a curled stockinette (in my opinion) is more interesting to look at….

i also like this post, in which i have a “hot ass t-shirt”… yes!   ;-)

and of course i LOVE being mentioned on the Punk Rock Knit Girls blog, even if its just a comment

a little more on the design of tiggy tweed… i wanted to make something fun to knit… sure, it’s not totally practical as a purse, but i’ve been using mine on occasion to cart around my phone and wallet while shopping… not an everyday bag of course… the construction is really a blast, i even saw someone who did a felted version!

    Thanks so much for the mention! I really dug the pattern, so much that I cast on for another one right away. Sadly, I don’t think I got any piccies before it was gifted as a going away present, but she loved it, too!

    i absolutely love this bag – i plan on making a bunch. i am somewhat of a beginner (i know my way around my neeedles and am tired of scarves) but i have a goofy question about your pattern and googling and craftster arent helping… so – how do i “break off yarn”?? is it just cut and tie in a knot? (in the body of the bag to weave the contrast in) how do i do that?

    thanks so very much for helping my goofy self!

    hey! I found your blog while searching around the internet for more info about twiggy tweed. i knit one but am starting construction and its just turning out awful, so i figured who better to ask than the person who wrote the pattern! It’s coming out very flat, similar to this knitter’s,, like windows, instead of squishy like yours! Should I try knitting the CC strip larger? Re-knit the body with slits instead of holes? Am I just not getting how to seam it probably? (Which is my worst thing as a knitter, I should have thought about that before starting when I realized how much seaming was involved). Find a new thicker yarn (used Lion Brand Wool Ease)?
    Its sort of weird to ask on a comment to clarify the pattern, but I really want a purse like the picture. Thank you sooo much.
