Hello All!

For my birthday my sister got me the book Domiknitrix: Whip Your Knitting into Shape by Jennifer Stafford. Grin
I am in love with many of the patterns in there and will pick one to start knitting within the next few weeks but I was wondering if anyone has made anything from this book and if so what did you think? Any comments on them? Maybe even pictures?

Thank you

I knit the L'il Red Riding Hoodie (in Black).  You can see pics on my blog:

http://sticks-and-tones.blogspot.com/2007/05/lil-black-riding-hoodie.html

I'm very happy with how it came out, and thought the pattern was pretty well-written (there were a few errors, though, which you can find on the Domiknitrix website).  It's held-up very well with wear, though it is pilling a bit (but I've worn it a lot).

I haven't tried anything else from the book yet.

Landshark it looks wonderful!
I want to knit everything in that book! I really want to learn intrashia so I'm thinking I'll start out withy the star pillow to learn that then move on to some other things. Anybody try the wolf sweater or halter top? I have my eye on both of those. The halter top mostly...a gal with barely any chest can wear those things ya know...it's of the perks of having no chest really *snickers*

Doesn't get a whole lot of traffic, though, unfortunately.

there's quite a few errors in the book from what i've been told. i know 2 people who have made the snow devil hat and hated each and every stitch while knitting it b/c the pattern was written strangely. the results were great though

here's the FO
