1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mariah from Knitty.com on: September 28, 2005 09:58:15 PM
Hey you guys, I finally picked up my Mariah sweater and finished her. Yeah, I started this MONTHS ago and then let it sit allllll summer. But the weather is cooling down now, so I need more wooly goodness. See my blog for more photos and notes about the pattern, etc.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Interweave Knits Snuggly Baby Hat on: January 08, 2005 11:25:31 PM
I made this a few months ago for my friend, and her baby has finally arrived. Here's a piccie of cute Anya in her hat:



That was my first lace project and it really helped increase my skills and my confidence as a knitter. I used a pattern from Interweave Knits Summer 2004, "Snuggly Baby Hat", and Dalegarn Baby Ull washable wool with #2 DPN (they're like toothpicks!! haha!!)

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Thank you SNB!! on: May 09, 2004 12:15:50 AM
I am increasingly impressed with the Stitch n Bitch book. Wow!! Using Debbie Stoller's directions, I have learned casting on, k and p stitches, binding off, stripes, ribs, etc. I've made two scarves.

Today I started making my third project: a baby hat using the utterly delicious Debbie Bliss Cashmerino from a Vogue Beginners book. It called for bar increases, spaced evenly, but did not have any instructions on how to do that. I looked it up in SNB and not only did she describe what a bar increase is, she explained exactly how to space evenly throughout my row, and it's so d'oh simple now.

This truly is a great beginner's book. The descriptions and illustrations make everything simple and understandable, and I feel like I can just about do anything!!

Just had to rave,

5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Pinup Queen?? on: May 01, 2004 09:43:01 PM
Has anyone attempted the Pinup Queen sweater? I've searched the boards here quite a bit and haven't seen any mention of it.

I'm a new knitter, am working right now on Ribbed For Her Pleasure, so I feel good about knit and purl stitches. I am excited to try some sweaters and bags etc. soon, but am worried about choosing a) the right sweater for my body type and b) the right size once I choose the pattern I like.  Huh I guess I'll figure all that out with experience.

Thanks for all of your great posts... I'm so happy to have this fun new hobby and I love seeing all of your finished projects!
