From Susan — Fun Class!

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 4:03 pm

Today I taught a knitting class for a small group of very fun and special people.  They attended a class this spring and we had such a good time, we did not want it to end — so we decided to try the Beaded Amulet Bag.   Beth even brought a coffee cake!  What’s not to like??!!??

These bags are a challenge to get going, but they are also quite addictive:

 How many bags does one person need?  Lots more than this!

The gold bag in the center was one I found when we went through my mom’s stuff.  I must have made her this very early on as I now use a slightly lighter gold colored thread, and I have no idea where I got the gold glass cube.  It’s nice to have it as a keepsake.

And this is the good thing about blogs/Ravelry: I made a pair of Fetching Glovelets for my lil daughter’s friend — just out of cheap yarn.  She needs another pair — her mom “borrowed” them and won’t give them back!  Having a photo record of your knitting is great to recreate something.  And to be honest, I’d rather make ten pairs of Fetching Glovelets for someone who loves them than one sweater for a daughter who won’t wear it!  You know who you are!

Fetching by you.


  1. The photo with all the beaded bags is gorgeous! I wish I could take your class. I didn’t know I needed a beaded bag, but apparently…I really, really DO!

  2. I just caught up with your blog after more than a couple of weeks of being away. I wanted to express my sympathy for the loss of your dear mother. I hope she realized how accomplished you both are at your crafts — she must have been so proud.

  3. Love all your glovelets. Is the pattern to be found online?

  4. I am totally amused by your bag collection. It resonates with me. And the bags are just fabulous.

  5. Those are indeed fetching. And I know all about those daughters (and granddaughters) who won’t wear lovingly created sweaters. Sometimes they get more sense as they get older. That seems to be happening at my house now.

  6. I need a beaded bag, too. Source of pattern, please. I particularly like the circular one, but would like them all in my library. Do I aneed any more addicting projects? (a resounding YES). Maybe I could start knitting in the greenhouse between customers?

  7. A sweater for a daughter that won’t wear it? And I thought that only happened here at home.

  8. Are you in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia?

    If so, where do you have your classes. Interested in making a beaded bag.

    Thank you

  9. I purchased a kit but the directions are sketchy. And I’m an intermediate knitter.

    Is there a book you recommend with actual patterns and directions?
