1191  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Yet another Kittyville Hat on: November 21, 2004 10:32:16 AM
That's adorable! I love those colors Smiley
1192  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cashmere - good substitution? on: November 19, 2004 12:05:35 PM
I just ran out and bought Last Minute Knitted Gifts - I love this book and want to eat it. Anyway, I saw the Men's Cashmere Scarf and realized that I NEED to make this for my bf. (Every day he wears the same scarf and I did not make it!) But this scarf uses 3 skeins of cashmere yarn which retail at $44 per skein. Other cashmeres I looked at are similar, which is sad as I know he likes cashmere. What would be a good subsitute? Is there some kind of yarn out there that is also soft and luxurious but not so crazy expensive??

I'm starting this sweater this week for my boyfriend. There are NO illusions that this is a Christmas present though. It is a "just because" present Smiley I made a little guage swatch and washed it last night (to make sure it retains its size) and I'm hoping to actually cast on tonight!

What kind of yarn did you use on the second (striped) one? I, too, like the colors and texture a lot!

Thanks! I did follow the pattern exactly, but my head is not very big either. Even so, it is a bit shorter than other hats I have. I'd say it wouldn't be a bad idea to add a little length if you're concerned at all. I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride worsted - less than a skein! Since I bought two skeins I may actually attempt to make matching mittens at some point. (Probably after I finish the Manly Sweater I'll be starting for my manly boyfriend this week. Which could take months.)

Nice idea! What kind of yarn did you use?

So glad you posted that! This pic is much more inspiring to me than the one from the book (I tend to cringe at so many colors in one place). I just started this the other night and have a couple of inches so far in a lovely shade of blue. To h*ll with all those christmas presents I'm supposed to be working on!

This is my first cable ever. The stitches feel very tight in some places and loose in others - is that typical of cables?

For those of you intesested in patterns for larger sizes, you might be interested to know there is a new book in the works called Big Girl Knits (though the title could change). It's being edited by Jillian Moreno and...someone else whose name escapes me, but they are both associated with knitty.com. I really like Jillian's designs though I'd look horrid in them as I am skinny and boob-lacking. But she does a great job of designing clothing that's flattering for figures which are more curvaceous.

As far as the new SnB, I really like that chapter on altering patterns. I think it's very helpful in understanding patterns and how they are constructed, and the way in which different yarns would work (or not work). There's a lot of math, but it IS written in that Bust-magazine style that makes even mundane things more interesting.

The first one has several chapters that explain the process of knitting and everything you need to know to get started, including information about yarns and other supplies you will need. The new one doesn't have that type of information; instead it has a long chapter about altering patterns for different types of yarns or different size garments. It's also very informative, but definitely more advanced. As far as the patterns go, I don't think the skill level really differs between the two books.
