A Grey Disappointment
In the pattern photo the purse looked fabulous. Just what I wanted. I ordered the kit and started knitting.
Well, it did not turned out as I hoped for. And that would be like the one in the pattern photo.
The pattern had no information about gauge. So it was a bit too little for the clutch. And to decrease while knitting cables did not work out well. Also no direction for that.
It must be said: Norwegian patterns are always vague. I really do not know why.
Maybe designers assume that the knitter is educated in knitting or it is simply a very bad habit. A lot of knitters has complained but it do not seem to help.
Any other suggestion or views on that issue?
BUT, the grey purse is here. And I will use it. Maybe not flash is all over, but just use it for a suitable use. It is meant to be a mobile phone purse. Now it is just a purse. It really looks better in the photos than in real life....
Too much complaining for one day - the sun is out. The spring is here. And who cares about a grey purse that failed?? There are so much more important things to knit. And that will work.... Have a grey(t) day - if you know what I mean. LOL!!
