1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Little Black Top on: September 23, 2007 07:15:24 PM




So I made the LBT using the recommended classic elite provence and was not impressed with the way it knit up. I've made sweaters using tahki cotton classic and would recommend that for anyone considering this top. But it's comfy and you can't go wrong with basic black.

I always look through Amy Butler's book when I'm at Borders, and most of the projects seem cool. I haven't checked out the actual patterns though, and I've never used any of her patterns before. Would you recommend buying it?

Yes - I checked the book out from the library 2 or 3 times before I bought it. I've made the kimono robe twice and plan to make the lounge pants again. So far I've found her instructions to be straight forward. Hope that helps!

I've had this apron on my "To Do" list since March. Great job! How long did it take you?

Not long at all- maybe a couple of hours spread over different days. In fact, I didn't even bother enlarging the pattern pieces, I just guess-timated the quilting. And everything was scrap material, except the pompoms, so it was cheap, too.

I botched the quilting, but had fun using scraps. I hope to some day have the patience to try one of her quilts.

This was my first kimono robe, I also made one for a friend and for some reason I had more trouble the second time. It's super comfy, but sure doesn't photograph well!

I made the Amy Butler pj pants, but without the drawstring. I'm all about elastic. They were a cinch to make - can't wait to make another pair.



7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / refurbished deck chair on: July 29, 2007 06:00:41 PM
I finally replaced the worn fabric on my flea market deck chair - one more to go!

Foxy socks! Rock on. I've gotta get some knee socks in my repertoire.

So cute!  I might try making those for my friend who is expecting -- I've always thought the pattern was adorable, but I wasn't sure I wanted to make them.  What did you use for the stitching?

I used embroidery floss for stitching. They were fun to make, although I had to frog it once because I didn't pay close enough attention to the pattern. But I'm glad I stuck with them.

Oh so wee!

And I love the little pockets.  Who are they for?

They're for a friend's son who could be born any day now. When he arrives he has a closet of super-cool handmade threads waiting for him. Lucky fella!
