Mom’s Squatty SidekickJuly 12, 2007 at 7:41 pm | Posted in General Knitting | 7 Comments
I was thinking about felting a purse yesterday, so I jumped on Ravelry to find a pattern and Remembered the Squatty Sidekick. I first saw this knitted by Ruth, and I really loved hers, and have been wanting to make one ever since. So, I did.
Cute, huh? I think it turned out Awesome. I originally started it for me, but It turned out a little bit small for me, and Mom really liked it, so I let her have it.
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool. I can never sing the praises of Cascade enough. It’s my favorite all around wool, it comes in a billion colors, and it’s just really great. I had never felted with it before, and I’ll tell you, I’ll never felt with Lamb’s Pride again! Cascade felts perfectly, and quickly too.
Needles: US Size 10.5 29″ Circular
Button: Vintage from my Great Grandma’s Button Stash.
I’m still in the mood for a felted purse, and since this one went to my mom, I think I’ll try my hand at a Sophie, knit out of Cascade 220, of course!!
