1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Nation or Handbook? on: January 24, 2005 06:34:29 PM
the other advantage of the first book for beginning knitters is that it also has an extended 'how to' section which explains in detail all the stitches and tricks you'll need for basic knitting. the second has a wee refresher reference section only.

having both will certainly motivate you to tackle more challenging things soon enough though! Cheesy

thanks so much for that clarification! i kinda worked it out (BO between knitting in front and back of ladder) half way across the back, which I did first  Cool

I'm working on this at the moment too Smiley

Though since I'm in australia I opted to use Heirloom 4 ply cotton in a gorgeous candy pink. I'm only 1/5 of the way through so nothing exciting to report but i'm keen to see pics once others are done (even if they are baggy! Wink )

for anyone who can't see the image, head here Smiley

It took me a few days of intermittent knitting. It's really very easy. Once you pick up your stitches for the sides of the bag it's a breeze.

I think you'd have time to make one for your mum if you get started soon Smiley

i remember doing this the very first time i did a rib pattern way back in the day!!

i was too keen to really investigate if there were any little tricks to switching stitches  Grin

do you mean you're instarsia knitting something into it or you've already knit the front and you're going to embroider with yarn?

even if you're a good drawer it's still a good idea to use a graph even if you mock it up yourself in Excel or Word. Unless you're a total renegade and enjoy the randomness Wink

As for *what* image to use - that's an entirelt personal thing. Personally, i'm a fan of the cute animal thing: octopus, kitty, lamb, squirrel, swallow etc... or iconics figures like a lightning bolt, a silhouette, a question mark or something...

perhaps it will come to you in a dream!

yup, it's the same principle with dpns as circs Smiley

try inverting the garment and knitting with the active needles closest to you rather than away from you

this is one of my coveted projects for the new year too Smiley

i'm currently scouring for substitutions that i can get here in australia.

i knit a mini meema as a cute little purse for my stepmum for Xmas.

i used 8ply/DK wool instead of worsted and 7mm circs to get the smaller size. It's my favourite felted object thus far and I'm going to knit a regular size one for myself in the new year (but not in such neutral colours Wink )

yours is so beautiful! it gives me faith that I can pull it off Cheesy

has anyone from outside the US made this sweater? I'm looking for yarn substitutions since Brown Sheep isn't available in Australia...

can you feel the difference with the 20% wool content in the cotton? i'd like to do it as close as possible so as not to waste time and money with opting for a poorer substitute...
