11  Re: Snowball Cat Bed in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by greenchick on: July 04, 2004 08:45:15 AM
I finished the cat bed for my yoga instructor's cats and I have to say that I am really happy with the outcome. I wasn't too sure when I was working on the project because it just didn't look like it was going to work out, but it did. I have it sitting on my dining room table and my own two cats haven't gone near it (hope that isn't a bad omen for the other cats  Undecided). In the end, I kind of wish that I made the smaller version, but I think that Big Mo (the largest cat I have ever seen) will fit it fine.

12  Emma's Poncho from Family Circle in Knitting: Completed Projects by greenchick on: April 30, 2004 06:42:00 PM
I finally finished the poncho for my niece, Emma, a few days ago and I was really happy with how it turned out.
The pattern was from an old Family Circle (with Rebecca Buddig from "All My Children" on the front cover) and it was the first time that I did any type of v-neck increases or binding off in the middle. The patch on the side of the poncho was the impetus for the entire thing as I fell in love with it (87 cents at Wal-Mart) and decided to make something around the patch. The yarn was an incredibly soft Red Heart yarn that felt wonderful but was a pain to knit with. Anyway, I hope my niece can use it in the fall and I can't wait to see pictures of her in it.

Cheers,
Jill

13  Quick kid's scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by greenchick on: March 31, 2004 07:05:51 PM
My daughter, Shelby, just completed her very first scarf (okay, I am a little proud  Grin) after many false starts. We decided to use 13 needles, very chunky yarn (Lion Brand Thick and Quick), and simple pattern. Cast on 12 stitches. Knit 5 rows in garter, then k all even rows and k3, p 6, k3 for all odd rows. Continue alternating all the even and odd rows until you have about a yard left, then knit 5 rows in garter and bind off. Very easy and very quick . . . she knit hers in about a week but just said that her homework isn't done for tomorrow  Shocked.

Cheers,
Jill

14  Re:Marsupial Tote and Substitutions in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by greenchick on: March 31, 2004 05:58:30 AM
I was so afraid of trying to make this tote because the directions, initially, didn't make a whole lot of sense. But, I loved the look of the bag and was up for a challenge. Talk about easy  Cheesy. I was shocked at how quickly it went together and felting it was a blast! It only took two skeins fo the MC (I knit from both ends) and one of the CC. There was enough left over to make a child's purse for a friend's daughter. I think I might try to adapt is to make it longer, but shallower the next time. If anyone is thinking about making it, but might be a bit afraid like I was, give it a whirl . . . you won't be disappointed!

Cheers,
Jill
