1  FO: sock monkey blanket in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by jeska on: April 23, 2006 09:40:05 AM
I used the same yarn the pattern called for, highly recommended.  I put a scalloped edge on instead of picot (seemed more fitting).  The hook size was incorrect in the pattern so the squares are a little looser than they should be, but I think it's okay.  I'm not 100% happy with the seams -- it's really hard to see the stitches in that ragg yarn!  Anyway... here she is, just in time to show off at Debbie's book signing this afternoon!

2  my first amineko in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by jeska on: April 20, 2006 05:41:11 PM
I know you've seen a ton of these, but I have to share. He's so cute.  Unfortunately I damaged a nerve in my ring finger making him (I should have used a bigger hook)... but he was totally worth it.  Okay, maybe not.  We'll see how long it takes to get feeling back in my finger.

Has anyone else found the 7 rows in the handle flap to be a little short?  I had trouble wrapping it around the 6" cane handles or these 5" plastic ones.  Next time I make this I'll probably add another row or two.

Oh... if anyone uses the "Sugar 'n Cream" from Joann Fabrics... get 2 balls. It's about 2 yards short, you'll run out with two rows left.  My advice: start the new ball when you start the 2nd handle flap.

4  Space Invaders tote bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by jeska on: December 29, 2005 02:55:10 PM
This bag is loosely based on Deb Stoller's intarsia bag in the first book (second book?).  But I didn't add enough to the sides, so had to knit a side/bottom piece to make it a little wider.  And I did the straps on dp's instead of straights.  And I added webbing to the underside of the straps to make the straps unstretchable.  And I added a lining.  So, really, I guess the only thing I got from Deb's pattern is the gauge and general dimensions.  That's something.

My boyfriend Phineas did the chart design.  He's a handy guy to have around.
