101  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My SnB Projects (Picture Heavy) on: January 02, 2005 04:41:45 PM
I have Finally uploaded my knitting pictures and thought I would share.

First the ice cream coozy, which isn't SnB, but I had to share. Currently it is enjoying the company of Haagen-Daas Coffee. Yum!

Here is the basic cable hat...I used Patons Classic merino, added an extra 6 rows, and the thing it still short. This is the part where someone says GAUGE Liz.  Wink  So my Daughter has inherited it and Loves it.

And my favorite project....Alien Illusion Scarf/ And the skull with Crossbones...

And last but not least, and just because I can share....Here is a picture of my baby Leo, taking advantage of the old car seat Waiting to go to the attic.

I used the Lion Brand Thick and Quick, and it turned out o.k. The only thing that bothers me, just a little, is the holes from the decreases. I think I remember reading a couple pages back, that it had to do with the yarn being "consistently bulky" or something like that. Anyhoo, I really like it, and am wearing it right now. I am NOT a hat person, so that says a lot. And here it is...

I have to say I really like the homespun. After hearing a lot of bad things about it I wasn't going to use it. That is, until my Mom decided I had to make two shawls with it as Christmas Presents for family.

I didn't have one single problem knitting with it. One of the shawls was just a simple knit every row type pattern with fringe. I had to force myself to give it up. It is sooo soft and warm. And for the fringe I just knotted the ends so it didn't unravel. 

Good Luck!

I am so bummed. I finally have the chance to buy this book, and I can't find it in stock anywhere. I have googled my butt off looking for it. Anyone know a place that has it?

I just made this last night with the Lion Brand Thick and Quick. I used leftover yarn, so I had to take out two rows. Of course, when it was done, I saw that I would have had enough yarn,.  Undecided  Anyhow, I used size 17 needles, and it fits me just right. I am going to make another one with some more leftovers, but this time I will add in the two rows. I want it to cover my ears.

I will post a picture tonight. I'm not home right now.

Ohhh PLease share deatails on using the Fishermanns wool. How much did you use? WHat size needles? And how did you dye it? And anything else I should know too  Grin

I have been DIEING to make this bag, and a friend sent me yarn for it. but it's VEry thin, and not enough to double it.  Fishermanns wool is the only thing I can find locally that will felt, so spill all!  Smiley

First off... There are a couple other free hat patterns on her site, that look quite simple.  I hate to step on any toes, and I know I could be WAAAY of base, but it seems to me that If I had a "free" pattern that was as popular as this one, why offer it for free? It's a business thing maybe? And if I am off base, my Humble apologies to Bonnie.  Anyhow... I was lucky enough to find this pattern a while back and print it, and with all the happenings, was inspired to make it today. But of course, I have a simple question....

When it says to do 12 rows of stockinette, do you start with a purl or knit row? Since the previous row is Knit, I would think purl, but then again.... Ahhh  the joys of being new to knitting.

And once again, hope my opinion wasn't out of line. I have bought patterns from Bonnie before, and hope to in the future.

Anyone? Anyone? Doesn't anyone have a thought on this?  Undecided

I really need to get this scarf "done" asap....

109  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Alien Illusions Scarf...SHould I block it? on: December 21, 2004 06:25:10 PM
I just finished making this scarf....My first project with anything other than acrylic. I used the Naturespun worsted, which was what the pattern called for. 

The sides of the scarf are rolling under, big time. Should I block it? And if so, how do I do that? I have never blocked anything so I am a bit clueless.   

Other than that I looove how it turned out. After I get this one in shape I am making a black and white one with Skull illusions. Can't wait to get started.
