Hey Frankie - thanks for the link to Kate's Blog - I made her Noro Iro bucket hat and didn't realize she was the creator of the Man Sweater too - I like her style!

Bekee - fantastic job!! you inspire me to try it for my husband Smiley

3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:new to knitting and SnB-and they both rock! on: April 26, 2004 03:57:02 PM
great thrift store find!!

I think SnB is the best $14 bucks i've EVER spent on a book. I had knitted long ago in high school, then again last year I made a scarf, but after picking up SnB i've finished 2 hats and learned more new knitting stitches/techniques than I ever thought possible. If you'd said a year ago i could make a hat with devil horns and pitchfork ends i would have said "yea, when hell freezes over!" but I did it and its still sunny as far as i can tell

welcome to the addiction!

Fantastique!!! I loved making the devil hat - our ears look the same LOL!

Ijust got yarn for a black kitty hat with baby pink ears and pom poms (by request from the recipient) and am itching to make it, after I finish a few other things (easy addiction this knit thing)

Other than constant fear that my stitches were going to fall off, it was fun!

I was worried about that too, so I wrapped a rubberband around the ends of the needles I wasn't using.  It took a little time to unwrap/wrap them for each round, but the peace of mind was worth it.

Cute hat, by the way!

hi, try using tiny O rings for the ends - they slip off easier and you can move them around as the needles change. i found using size 7 metal needles WAY too slippery with some yarn and thus the O ring idea was born after i went thru all my size 10 gauge earrings i can't wear anymore Smiley

but using crystal palace size 2 dpns isn't as scary as i thought for some socks. the bamboo keeps the yarn from slipping!

Love the book, love the projects, and i'm an old broad Smiley

after the requisite scarves i ventured forth to the land of circs and dpns and gave birth to my very own devil hat!! wore it to a bonfire at the beach and now have an order in for the kitty version!

much fun to make and not scary at all - even after a few nights of frogging stitches!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:Working with Circular Needles on: April 13, 2004 11:39:09 AM
Hi!

I've tried a few different circs and here's my take:

1. susan bates (plastic in smaller sizes, metal on 10's and up - i think). hated their cables but soak them in HOT water for a couple min then straighten them out and its not bad. these are not expensive needles and ok to knit with

2. denise interchangeables (www.knitdenise.com) LOVE them - these are plastic and so far have knitted with all but one extremely fidgety yarn. I like that they are easy to use and think the big thicker cables are better for the stitches.

3. bamboo needles - i have not tried any bamboo circs but i love my crystal palace bamboo double pointed needles so if i do need some "fill -in" circs to augment my denise set I plan to buy bamboo circs.

hope this helps !
