11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Antlers Scarf on: January 22, 2008 09:58:19 PM
So I made my second FO in knitting the antler scarf in Son of Stitch 'n Bitch with a cream yarn as you can see from my pictures.  I'm very impressed because there is nothing in this scarf that I can noticeably see that is a mistake which is an amazing thing to know!  Please don't point it out if you do see one haha.

It was definitely a challenge in and of itself, but I'm onto other things... like a cable-knit scarf and a double-knit scarf too... I need to stop starting projects and finish the ones I'm working on now.

Here's my version!  I used it in the challenge, but I felt like I needed to put it on here since I have been watching this thread so just to preface it, I used a yellow baby yarn and size 5 knitting needles.  This is my first completed knitting project, and hopefully my friend Charlotte will like this.

So... I know someone already posted Quant, but here is my entry... start to finish.  I used a baby weight yarn instead for something a little more delicate, and used size 5 needles instead.  I suppose the technique I'd use would be Entrelac, but I've never created something with an I-cord either, nor have I used a double-pointed needle either.  If you wanna get really really technical, this is my first completed project in knitting too.  Here are my pictures.  Oh and the milk bottle on there has the expiration date of 1/31/08 and that's what the close-up of the tag says too.

It looks good so far.  The only thing is the edging looks a little odd... Does anyone have issues getting the ends of rows to look neat?  I'm kinda still new to knitting, so if anyone has suggestions, I'd be very grateful to hear them.

I'm using this cream yarn and aqua too... The aqua is really more like a really flourescent blue than a greenish blue, but the label says aqua.  It looks really cool so far, but I'm only two blocks done... It's so slow going.

Okay... So I am in the process of working on this argyle pattern DK scarf for my friend Andy (unless it turns out totally kick@$$ then I'm keeping it for myself) from the semi-new Stoller book with patterns just for guys.  I'm about halfway through the first block of pattern, but I was just wondering if anyone knew which way to wrap the yarn at the end of each row and how many times to do so?  Also, this is my first real project besides the first scarf that looks like crap that everyone does but shows no one... So wish me luck on completion.

I know you said you can't really come up with a pattern, but what stitch/stitches did you use?  It looks like a DC and chx1 or chx2 stitch.  Just wondering what you did.  And btw, great minds do think alike =)

Well, you cut the fabric into 1" strips.  After doing that, you cut little holes in the two ends and attach each strip to each other, and voila!  You have a long fabric strip that you can crochet using a huge plastic hook.

Okay, here are the items I used - a paisley skirt, a white jacket, a teal nightshirt, and a pair of teal maternity pants.  There are detailed pictures of the skirt and the jacket to show off the ugliness.  I spent $.25 on the skirt, nightshirt, and pants, and $1.00 on the white jacket.

I crocheted the purse using the skirt cut up into strips and then attatched to each other.  The purse is a single crochet with one base chain and crocheted in one piece with no sewing  of the actual purse.  The handles of the purse are crocheted into the bag.  The flower is a crocheted circle with one round of the white jacket material in double crochet and then two rows of the teal night shirt with single chains one in the front of the double crochet and one in the back of the double crochet.  The button in the center came on the skirt, and there is a pin on the back of the flower to remove it from the purse.  The lining of the purse is the maternity pants and just sewed to the inside of the purse below the handles.  Here is the finished product with a ruler to show size and the flower detail and then the inside of the purse.

I hope you liked it and that you respond!  Cheers!
