11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Punk Kitty Backpack! on: January 07, 2006 10:03:48 AM
That looks really great!  Oftentimes, the actual knitter is the only one that can see or pick out mistakes.  Others who are looking at it are just so blown away by how amazing the product looks just like your backpack!  I love it! 

I am also on the edge of giving intrasia a try... BTW, did you use the yarn recommended in the book or did you use something else.  Cuz, quite frankly, the cost of the yarn is keeping me away from the project as well.

Excellent job!

Hey loisgriffinwannabe,

Thanks for the compliments!  For the ubernatural, I used size 15 for the beginning part (neck to chest) and then size 13 for the ribbing (tummy part) and size 13 also for the sleeves.  I have always been a fan of homespun.  The only compliant I have about this yarn is that b/c it's curly, it's difficult to see if you have made a mistake until you have finished and look at it closely....perhaps, that's a good thing for someone who is not as anal as me.  I also used single strand instead of double even though it is not extra bulky like the pattern called for. 

I LOVE Family Guy by the way....It's freakin' hilarious.

Cheers,

Lumpui

I have been busy with school and knitting but too lazy posting Tongue Well, here are some of things I have knitted lately. Enjoy and thanks for looking. I am so inspired by Craftster.org and all you generous souls for sharing patterns so freely. Special thanks to julsey723 and LeSophie for your generosity in sharing your patterns with me (and everyone) that are featured in this post. My thanks are way overdue!

This is LeSophie's version of Glampyre's Ubernatural. If it wasn't for LeSophie's explanations of the pattern, I would have been very lost. I also made the neckline smaller and made the sleeves 3/4 length. I used Lion Brand's Homespun. I used only 1 stand because I didn't want it to be too bulky.



This is julsey723's pattern of Anthropolgie-inspired capelet. The picture doesn't do it justice. I really love this pattern. It was simple and quick. I used Joann's sensation wool and cotton blend. Love it!




This is one of my favorite sweaters. It took forever, but I am glad I made it. This is Tempting from Knitty.com. I used Caron's soft acrylic yarn. It is very comfortable.


This was a costly one. This top is very Rowan's Summer collectipn book and Rowan's cotton and braids yarn. Too expensive for my student budget....good thing the book and yarn were a gift from my fiance for my birthday. Smiley



Last and definitely not least, a sleeveless turtleneck from a book I got from Joann's. I used Lion's brand thick and quick Lumberjack red to make it. I likey.



Thank you for looking. I hope that one day I too can contribute to Craftster's. Adios!

HI all!

I am so impressed by all the different Floras popping out everywhere!  I am almost done with mine, but I am stuck at right around the Twisted Loop part.  I have NO idea how to do it!!!  When the direction says, "gather all yarn in the right hand..." does that mean all the 10 inch tails?


Is there a tutorial somewhere for that or can any one enlighten me on that please!!!!

thanks,
Lumpui

Here is my Isabeau purse!  I love it.  Thanks once again for such a great pattern!




I am thinking about adding a zipper on it.  What do you guys think?

Cheers,

OH my goodness!

I LOVE you purse!  I must make one.  Thank you for sharing the pattern.  What a lucky friend of yours to receive both the beautiful shrug and purse.

Cheers,
