really...that's not bad at all!!  I'm definitely gonna have to try it when I get home from work!!

does it really matter what kind of yarn you use?   cause i'm a little strapped and can't afford the fancy stuff right now...

I used really thin gauge, like 22 sts per 4"...it was that micro fine cotton yarn. i bet u could use anything though. it will be chunkier or smaller depending on the yarn.

Just wanted to chime in with praise for SnB.  I had never knitted before when I bought this book last Tuesday with one of the giftcards I received for Christmas.  Since then, I've made a couple of practice swatches, finished the go-go garter stitch scarf (but chose a bad color combo--looks like something Freddy Krueger would wear!), and am now working on both the ribbed for her pleasure scarf and the big bad baby blanket.  

I am a knitting convert, thanks to Debbie, and I'm having a blast!  I'm at the point where I can barely endure sitting still without knitting needles in my hands--I want to knit during meetings at work, but haven't gotten the balls (ha ha) to do it yet.  And I've found myself trying to knit in my sleep. . .

We just ordered a digital camera this week, so once it arrives, I'll be sure to post pics of some finished work.  Everyone else has made such beautiful things as well--thanks for sharing!

I got my book for christmas, and it is wonderful. Knitting is sooo fun!
I was wondering if soeone could give me some tips on intarsia. I ahev just knitted a powerful wrist protection wristband but i knida made the "intarsia" up. What I have been doing is knitting up to the chart the doing what it says in the book ( putting the needle into the stitch then laying the new yarn over it and twirling..) the i just twirled the two yarns together each time then leaving the CC hanging and finnishing the row. Then when i get to the chart section again the the second row i twirl again and again then leave it hanging. does that make sense?  Smiley  Is that what i'm meant to be doing?

Dear Dopaminechoi,
If you make it out to Brooklyn, Knitting Hands on Atlantic, just east of Smith St. has pretty great prices on needles. They have quite a selection but I'd call first to make sure they have the sizes you need before you trek out.
They seem to have many different types of needles for cheaper than anywhere else I know in New York City where I live.  Good luck..!

I love snb. I'm currently working on the go-everywhere cardigan. I'm finishing the back, then I'm done with the knitting.

I used the Baabaajoe's woolpak in 8 ply for it. For the large I need to buy one more (darnit! I'll have like 300+ yards left), but usually  you'd only need like 2 for a medium.

It's eggplant w/teal trim.

Hey everyone! I got the SnB book for Christmas (after shameless hinting) and am dying to try the wristbands. I am a little confused though. I am a beginner knitter and have never encountered the instruction to knit with 2 strands of yarn as Debbie tells us to in the book. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Also, am I supposed to use two strands of the same colour or two different ones? I need help! If you can drop me a line or send me in the direction of a good site, I will be eternally grateful!
PS: Debbie's site sent me here...I LOVE IT! I have been a craft geek ever since I could work a pair of scissors, so it feels like home here!
