The Ugg Project

This is one project I’m definitely not proud of πŸ™

I got this yarn as part of a sample pack for a silk-yarn manufacturer. Its been lying around for sometime, as I didn’t know wot to do with it. Finally i figured that the nicest thing i could make would be a mobile pouch… in silk!

Once I made the yarn into a ball, my neighbour walks in and asks if I am matching that yarn up with something else as it just couldn’t be enough for any project. The answer was negative, but got me wondering if I was over ambitious to try to make something with such a small skien (10gms).
Anyway, I used a large needle (5.5mm) and got knitting. At the end realized that I had some yarn to spare. So made random pieces of i-cord, which I stitched up at different places: handle, border for the flap, and the last waste bit of yarn became a kind of strap for the flap.

But hey, its done, and its silk!!!

One thing I did was that it was used Judy’s Magic Cast-on method to create a seamless starting point for knitting in the round. Also, am proud of the fact that this is the only mobile pouch i have that’s been done in-the-round.

PS: for something I’m not too proud of, there sure are a lot of photos here!
