11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:Umbilical Cord baby Hat on: April 28, 2004 01:51:12 PM
This was my first non-scarf/blanket project.  I was amazed at how quick and easy it was - a great project for newbies like me!  Plus I got the yarn super-cheap...less than  $1!  After seeing all the cute pics on this thread I went out and got some yarn to make a strawberry hat...of course that's several projects down the list so who knows when I'll get to it.  It'll probably be the next "last minute baby shower project"  Smiley

I've seen the movie but am drawing a blank on what the green sweater looked like.  If you find a link to a pic from it we might be able to make some suggestions.  Alternatively, could you try to describe it?

I'm actually almost done with my first BBBB.  I love how it's turned out, although I've found it's taking me a while and I get ADD and switch to other projects now and then.  I did sub the yarn for a cotton/acrylic blend of about the same weight and it's worked just fine.  It was a bit cheaper and necessary for allergy reasons as the mom-to-be is allergic to wool herself so there's a good chance baby will be as well.  I'll try to post a pic when I finish, although I don't have a digital camera so I'll have to see if I can borrow one.

I bought a denise kit about a month ago and so far I really like them.  Before I ordered them I was a bit skeptical about the plastic needles because up until then I had used only bamboo needles.  I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.  The plastic needles are fine as long as your yarn isn't super slippery.  I've never had a problem with the needles disconnecting from the cords and the ends you can snap on to make needle holders are really useful as well.  When you think about how much money you'd spend buying individual needles it's definitely worth the price.  I think some people have found sets for sale on eBay so you might be able to save a bit more money if you look there as well.

Here's a link someone posted on another thread that is somewhat similar as well.  I think you could knit the pattern pretty much as is then add the flowers kayray suggested.

Wow, your bookmark is gorgeous.  My great aunt tried to teach me how to tat last summer but I was too busy honing my crocheting skills and learning to knit to give the tatting much attention.  My cousin just made a beautiful tablerunner edged in tatted lace and eventually I'd like to try to make one too.  Thanks so much for all the sites and info, now I'll be able to give it another try!

Sorry it's taken me so long to respond...

We had a preliminary meeting yesterday where I work to gauge interest and get suggestions of meeting places, and although turnout was not as high as we'd hoped we did come up with a list of potential locations.  We'll work on calling those over the next week and aim to set up the first SnB for the last week in February.

Although I live relatively close to Charlottesville (Richmond) unfortunately I don't know much about the art/craft scene there.  They do have a number of yarn stores and knitting classes, so I'm guessing there has to be at least something there, especially with the number of students at UVA.  Another place you might want to consider is Asheville, NC.  Asheville has a very strong art community, and is quite similar to Charlottesville in terms of cost of living and general atmosphere.

do you post on getcrafty.com too? i made a similar post and a couple of people responded. is it okay if i cut & paste your answer there?

i'm not quite sure what a good place would be. most of the non-starbucks coffeeshops close around 5 or 6pm. maybe using a room in a library? i'm not familiar with any of the libraries around here besides the main branch on franklin and the one on the corner of belmont and ellwood, so i don't know about the west end branch.

i live in oregon hill, so i usually stick to downtown, fan and carytown areas. i'm not quite sure what would be available past carytown.

I haven't posted there before, but I'll definitely take a look at it.  In the meantime feel free to post my reply there.  As for location, I was thinking West End because I live and work in the Far West End, as do the other people I've talked to about this so far.  The library might not be a bad idea.  The other place I've thought of is the Baker's Crust in Short Pump Town Center.  It's quite large and business seems pretty slow there by ~7PM so they'd probably be okay with us meeting there.

Actually, a friend of mine and I are working on organizing a SnB group that will probably meet in the West End.  She normally reads follows this site religiously but is on vacation or I'm sure she would have responded by now.  We're still trying to figure out the details (day/time/location) but should have that figured out within the next week or two.  We'll be sure to post all the info here.  Any suggestions on a good location? That's what we're having trouble with right now.
