11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Bzzz Queen Bee on: September 22, 2007 10:11:42 AM


Ignore my crazy eyes!

I've been working on the Bzzz hat and I think I may have made it too big. I just started the decreases and the hat is already past my ears. I may have to do some resizing.

 I love how it shows off the Noro colors.

They are pretty fun to wear for showing off to other knitters but I haven't quite finished the 2nd one. Once I do I will be unstoppable!

Thanks everybody! My friend asked me "when you die does this mean your feet are going to curl up?" he quickly amended this statement to "if you could die....".

Your right abandonedcouch, I still haven't finished the second one. I'm not sure if I have enough seed beads. I will do it eventually though so I can rock these around the house.

The sock really wasn't that hard to knit.

This is the basic overview of what I did:

I did the black and white stripes for about 14 inches, 2 at the top done in ribbing.
 
When I got to the heel flap I started the red portion of the foot.

The gusset was picked up in red as well but across the instep I knit with the black and white except for 5 stiches on either side. This was the difficult part of the sock was because of that b&w portion. As a novice sock knitter I didn't know how to overcome the problem of having the yarn you need on the wrong side when you knit in the round. I had to carry it across the back so it is quite messy on the inside. A better knitter would have to resolve this issue. 

The red part of the instep had the beading. I used the crochet hook method rather than stringing them onto the yarn. This gave a much more uniform appearance. I put the bead on the tip of the crochet hook. I then picked the stitch off the left needle with the hook and sliped the bead onto the yarn. Then I put the stitch back on the left needle and slipped the stitch onto the right needle. I then knit the next stitch.

I beaded every other row and I alternated which stitch had beads so that it looked evenly spaced.

I kept beading the instep of the sock all the way to the end of the toe.

That's basically all I did. It is a very plainly knit sock with some color changes and beads.

I hope this helps and I hope to see more of them in the future.

I went a little nutty making this sock. I was inspired by Frog in Knots baby slipper so I went and made an adult sized version for me. I used seed beads to decorate the red part of the sock.

This is from the Stitch N Bitch corrections found here: http://www.bust.com/knithappens/oops.shtml

"Letter Have It: Under Center Panel, instructions should read: With MC and straight needles, CO 16 sts. Work in garter st for 31 1/2 (42)"."

Thanks guys!

I sort of made up the part for the hat but I found the chart for the Decepticons on Flickr: http://flickr.com/photos/twoonesix/168804084/

I have the feeling I'm going to make one for myself soon but with sparkly yarn instead of just the solid colors.

I did the chart fair isle on the hat instead of intarsia. I used size 8 needles but looking back I should have gone with size 7's or even size 6. It only took a day to knit so it was a quick project.

A little something I knit for my brother. I promised this to him months ago but I forgot about it until I saw the preview for the new movie and it inspired me to get a move on this.

There are a couple of scarves that would go great with Noro.

I've done this pattern with Noro: http://www.magknits.com/warm05/patterns/rib.htm
here is a link to the one I did: http://flickr.com/photos/39549049@N00/38335134/in/set-72057594072532466/

This pattern would probably work too: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTdanica.html
