51  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Just finished! My Headline News Cabled Newsboy Cap from SNBN. on: January 26, 2005 08:59:17 AM
I LOVE this hat! I really want to try it (I got SnBN yesterday) but I'm a little wary of the thousands of needle sizes and types it calls for. Is there any way I can fudge that? I can't afford too many new needles.

You only need 2 sets of needles if you use dpns, a 5mm and 6.5 mm (or whatever that is in american size) Im a way to cheap to buy all those pointless circulars even is circs are nicer to use than dpns LOL

But you really do need the 2 sizes, for my first one I misread and done the whole thing in 5mm LOL it turned out tiny (luckily the colour didnt suit me anyway so even if it turned out right I wouldnt have worn it) 

But this is a great pattern I love my (2nd) hat (I done mine in green Cheesy ) and always get compliments on it

i think i'm going to go out and get these two sets of dpns, however i'm still somewhat new to using dpn's and i'm not sure how to adjust the pattern so they work.  any tips?

ooh i love the newsboy cap!  i'm going to go buy the supplies for one today, but are all the needles that are listed really required? or could i make do with just a few of them?  right now i only have like one pair of what's required and i'm not looking forward to having to buy like 5 new pairs ughh

for now i'm just hoping the stitches don't fall off, they're on pretty tight.  i might make a little groove or maybe drill a hole in the handles at either end at some point.  if i make another i'll try sewing it with a machine!  i just thought it would be hard with the handles in the way
55  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Cabling Project! A Clutch on: January 18, 2005 04:19:38 PM
I just finished my first cabling project, a clutch, inspired by Margaret Nicole clutches: http://www.margaretnicole.com/MargaretNicole2/homepage/copy%20of%20homepage.htm



I lined it with some vintage fabric I had from a previous project, and added a snap (but it came out kind of off center..I'll probably end up re-doing it.)

The lining was really weird to do..I didn't know if you could use a sewing machine to sew into knitted fabric, so i just hemmed the edges and hand sewed it in..probably not the best way to go about putting in the lining but it worked..kind of.

Oh and I made the handles all by myself!  Well, my dad did the shape because I can't handle tools and all that, but I stained and finished them!  I'm so proud!

I found a tutorial on here for a hobo bag a while ago and made one.  I got a whole bunch of compliments on it so I made two more today for two friends who are going to the National Irish Dance Championship in July, as presents.  Hope you like Smiley


the first one (the black stitching on the bottom is because i hadn't reversed it when i took the picture, it's not like that now)


one of the ones i made today

i LOVE that hat!  i was thinking of making a poodle hat... in hot pink with puffy pink pom poms!  i really love the pom poms!

May I ask what pattern you used? and is that knit or crocheted?

I didn't use a pattern, I just kinda made it up as I went along.  I added the earflaps on afterwards, I just cast on like 15 sts and decreased by like 2 stitches every row.  Oh, and I knitted it.  And thanks! Smiley

I just joined this forum and figured I should post a picture of a hat I finished a week or two ago.


(excuse my blank expression)

I made it out of Lionbrand Boucle in Sprinkles and the pom-poms are Sorbet.  I hadn't intended on adding the pom poms but it looked kinda plain w/o them. But I had run out of the Sprinkles and had some of the other color laying around, so I figured it'd add to the..eccentric look. What do you think?
