1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Book - "Sexy Little Knits" on: July 02, 2006 10:12:38 PM
I just saw this book by Ashley Paige at B&N the other day and looked through it.  Oh my gosh!  There is such beautiful, sexy stuff in there!  Has anyone made anything from the book yet?  I'd love to see some FOs. 

Sorry if this has already been discussed - I didn't see anything about it.
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Letter Have It -- Help me! on: May 18, 2006 04:18:39 PM
I've only knit one other FO so please forgive my stupidity!  I've looked for the answer to this and can't find it.

On the center panel, after you knit the one side for the zipper, the instructions say:  "Join yarn to sts on 1st holder.  Work in garter on these sts for 9"."  Ok, so my question is, how do you join the yarn?  Do you just put the stitches from the holder onto one of your needles and start knitting with your ball of yarn?  That's what I've started to do, but the end of the yarn is so loose.  It just doesn't seem right.  

Here's a hazy pic to help it make more sense (maybe):

Thanks in advance for your help!  
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cover skirt from Vogue Knitting Spring 2006 on: May 16, 2006 11:02:07 PM
Did anyone make this?  It's on my list, but I'm really curious to see how it turned out for others!  I absolutely love it! 
4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Boy beanie custom fit to big noggin on: May 16, 2006 10:58:46 PM
I made this boy beanie at least a month ago.  I had to add extra rows so it would fit my BF's big head.  I didn't even know he had an oversized melon until I made this hat for him.

This was super-easy to make and came out looking good.  

Please ignore the "cool face" my BF was trying to make in this pic.  He's such a goofball!  

5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Violet beauregard in blue, brown, and white on: May 16, 2006 10:26:19 PM
This is my first post of an actual FO.  I think the skirt turned out really cute, but it doesn't look good on me.  I've gained a few pounds and look lumpy in it.  Plus, it's a little see-through.  I'm not sure why that happened....my gauge was correct.  So I won't be posting the pic of me in it! 

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Please help! Lion Brand "Just Hats" book -- "I Felt Like It" hat on: April 02, 2006 09:52:58 PM
Hi everyone!  I'm a complete novice when it comes to knitting.  I've crocheted several things, but I'm now working on my first "real" knitting project.  I'm trying to make the hat mentioned in the subject line, but I don't think I knitted the brim correctly.  First, I had to cast on 160 stitches to start the brim.  The next instructions are:  "Working continuously, and ignoring the end of round, [knit 29, knit 2 together] 18 times -- 88 stitches total." 

I must've done something wrong because my brim only turned out about 3/4" long (prefelting since I'm still working on the project).  According to the picture, I would guess that it should be about 2 inches after felting.  I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to count to come up with 88 stitches.  Any ideas on what I might've done wrong?  I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to rip out a lot of what I've done....ARGH!!
