Omg!  Is that a Needler cookie??  That is so rad!

Going along with the cookie mix idea, hot cocoa mix or apple cider/mulling spices in a jar can be good too.  Especially since we're getting to hot cocoa time of year.

Another idea would be to get a set of mugs or tea cups, and include a hot cocoa recipe, or the recipe plus the dry ingredients. 

For example you could combine the dry ingredients then modify the instructions to make the cocoa: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/beverage/cocoa-wc.html

Well, I don't think it's handspun, but it's certainly made to look that way.  It's a mystery ball - I don't know what happened to the tag.  I do recall that it's one of the first balls of yarn I ever picked up when I was learning to knit though, I had intended to make the Loopy & Luscious scarf on Knitty but never worked it out, so I didn't do anything with it until now.  So it had been sitting in my stash for... 5 years I guess!

But long story short - I don't know the details on the yarn anymore!

A brilliant suggestion from another craftster on what to do with a leftover ball of yarn:

I even learned how to graft with this project, and it worked out just fine!

I don't typically like vests, but this one is very good looking.  I've also been inspired to check out Phildar now!

Great job!
186  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / I rolled my own needle case on: October 06, 2007 11:48:46 PM
I mostly followed the pattern in the first SnB book, and here's what I ended up with:

I put a larger pocket on the right for odds and ends or a random circular.

It's very handy for keeping my straight needles in one place!

Calorimetry is actually the abandoned project I was making with the orange!  Maybe I should go ahead and finish it.

Thanks everyone! 

The pattern can be found here:

I think it's a great pattern for not being huge boob-wise, but she's also got the link for specific modifications in the case that you are huge boobed.  Being of the former category, I was really happy with the fit and didn't have to make any extra changes to the pattern as far as sizing went.

You know, the sleeves are a little bat wing-ish!  That was actually another kind of mistake in alteration I made, I went ahead and did the increases to get the puffy sleeve, but then I shortened the sleeves by a couple of inches in order to make a cap sleeve.  When I stand with my arms down, the sleeves stick out especially.  Otherwise, they stick out a bit, but just the same as any cap sleeve in that kind of weight yarn.  But if I'd skipped the increases to make the puffyness, I think they'd certainly be less stickyouty.

Well I finally made a boob holder from Stefanie Japel's site, and I liked the pattern so much that I decided to get her Fitted Knits book!

If I were to make it again, (which I might, since it took up less than one skein of Cascade 220) I would be careful to do a looser cast on, and I'd also put a few decreases in the sides over the last 3 inches at the bottom. 

This is one of the few things that I've ever made where I'm happy with the fit!
