They also did a review of my crochet CDs woohoo.:cheer I really love a ot of the patterns in this issue. Epecially the lacy white tops. Its a shame the magazine is being discontinued. But there are supposed to be some new ones cropping up.Alexcablebagsm.jpg

I had seen a preview of the new FC Easy Crochet earlier, and when I saw a picture of your purse I knew that I just have to find this magazine. It's an awesome design! I can't wait to try it!

Thanks everyone for all the compliments :) I made this bag almost a year ago because I was jealous of all the cable knit bags in the posh boutiques. The people in my "knit & wine" group encouraged me to submit it to a magazine.

 

If you do try the pattern, all the abbreviations and instructions are confusing at first but after a few rounds you can work out how it goes by the pattern and the look of it. I do wish they included a stitch diagram though, because they are often easier to follow than instructions. Also, if you are watching your pennies, you can use Wool-Ease instead of Patons Wool.

Oh, I adore that purse!! It and the white camisole are the reasons I bought the magazine!

Thanks for the information about the yarn. I was wondering what kind it used. Both Wool Ease and Patons Wool are easy for me to get. I appreciate patterns that use yarns that are easy to find and in my price range.

I just bought that issue the other day and your purse was one of the biggest reasons that I bought it!!! I love it!

 

When I saw it, I did wonder if it was a design from a C'ville member! :D

 

Great job on it!!!

I just got my copy yesterday at walmart. The site for Patons and Bernat are way too busy to get into right now, but there are links for patterns on those sites in the magazine as well.

I live really not to far from you (about an hour...) and I got my copy from one of the JoAnn stores, not the little fabric one, but the big superstore one. If one carries it, you'd think that they all should.
