1  Re: cut out handle with fish!! **TUTORIAL ADDED** in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Bethann on: June 22, 2006 10:17:31 AM
thanks for such a great tutorial! it was so quick and easy to make this purse. although I did mess up the handles - don't look too closely. they'll be right on the next one. I didn't see that you sew the scrap fabric on the right side of the fabric. whoops.

I thought I'd share my kitty pi too. I made this for my cat about 2 months ago, and she absolutely loves it. She sleeps in it day and night - even when the weather is warm. I used a bulky wool - Gjestal Naturgarn (sp?).

Her eyes are only scary like that in photos, by the way.

Here is the Emperor Penguin:

I made him out of Lion Brand Microspun. He's a Christmas gift for my nephew- I gave him a list of all the animals in the book, and he picked a penguin. It was a very fun knit!

4  Beaded Tunic in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Bethann on: August 04, 2005 11:34:16 AM
I made this tunic using Simplicity 5684. I thought it looked a bit plain, so I added beads and sequins- I used the beaded tunic in the spring/summer Vogue Knitting for inspiration (for you knitters out there). The fabric is a very drapy, slightly textured, thin polyester. Here are the before and after pictures- and links in case the pics don't show up:

5  Re: Help on Baby's First Tatoo sweater in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Bethann on: July 06, 2005 05:48:12 AM
I finished this sweater last week too, and I was very disappointed with the pattern. I had to do much of the math on my own to figure out numbers that the pattern should have included, and the front seams do  not match up. The pieces are just not the right shape. I ended up just having to force them- the seaming and finishing took me longer than any adult-sized sweater I've made. If you look closely at the picture of the sweater lying flat in the book, you'll see that it looks lumpy up at the neckline. I recommend Knitty's "Daisy" baby raglan if you ever make another one. Here's how mine turned out: (you can see how my neckline in front is weird too- even after blocking)

I made this little sweater last summer. I thought I'd share mine too. It's such an easy quick pattern, I'm working on another one right now in a fuzzy pink yarn called "Baby Bee." The hoods are so cute on the ones in this post- I'll definitely make a hood for it.  This one is in Sugar n' Cream:

Here are mine. What a fun, quick knit. Like others, I had difficulty reversing the pattern, so I just did both the same way. I don't think it makes much difference. I'm a bit miffed however that my 2 skeins didn't start with the same color even though they're from the same dye lot. Is this common with Noro? It's my first time using it. Oh well.

8  FO- Fair isle cardigan in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Bethann on: March 14, 2005 08:18:22 PM
Hey all-
I know some of you were wanting to see this cardigan in different colors, so here's mine. It was such a fun, easy pattern. With such bulky yarn (I used Gjestal Naturgarn from Elann), I was done in no time. It's my first adventure with fair isle too:

Here are the garter stitch cuff mittens I made using Paton's merino wool:

If my picture isn't showing up (I can't see it anymore for some reason), click on my website- the pic is on my yahoo photo album.

I really love them, and I wear them every day. I can see why amtista is a bit disappointed with them in the glove version. They look snug fitting in the book, but they're pretty big- which I like for mittens, but not for gloves. I also had a bit of trouble with holes around the thumbs, but I just pulled the stitches together from the inside, and now they're perfect. The only other changes I made to the pattern are a few extra rounds in the cuff, and ending them sooner so they wouldn't be so pointy (I used kitchener stitch to finish the tops- I don't know if that's what the pattern calls for).   

I forgot to add- I suppose to make them a bit less baggy, you could try leaving out the increases after finishing the cuff.

If you're looking for a rectangular shawl, this one is lovely:


I made it last month, and it was a lot of fun. It's easy, but it looks fancy. The pattern is easy enough to memorize too. I used less than 2 skeins of Red Heart Luster Sheen, so the whole thing cost about $8. The yarn is acrylic, but it feels and looks like cotton.
