201  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: To Dye For sweater on: May 07, 2004 07:16:13 AM
Ya know, I'm curious... and a pretty new knitter...

 I wonder if the folks who actually dyed their wool for the To Die For Sweater have the same problem with stretching that the others have. I haven't done Kool Aid dye yet but the directions I've seen so far include heat. Would that 'shock' the yarn or shrink it slightly or Huh Just a brainstorm I had while I was in the shower. Smiley

I'm still going to try this sweater when my eBay yarn comes in the mail. I bought a cone of yarn and wonder if people who knit from cones leave their yarn on the cone when they knit or if they wind their yarn into balls? I just haven't knit from a cone yet.

I'm getting ready to knit a newborn baby hat with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. yummmm!

Hey everybody,

I'm dying to make an actual sweater (knewbie here!). I just won a cone of lovely lavender mohair on ebay and I think I'll make this sweater with it.

For those of you who use cones, did you simply knit from the cone or did you make a ball (or balls) out of it before you started your project?

I'm curious about sizing... sounds like this sweater knits up bigger than people imagine and then grows and grows. I'm a medium sized gal with large sized boobs so I'm a little anxious about choosing my first sweater pattern. When my yarn comes, I'll give it a try and let you all know how it works out.

I love that I can see photos of everyone's finished projects here! The colors you've used for this sweater (the red and the green ones) are so gorgeous.

jillyf - I would love to see a pic of your sweater and hear about how it fits you!! Are you planning to get more yarn and finish it? What yarn are you using?

204  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Pinup Queen?? on: May 01, 2004 09:43:01 PM
Has anyone attempted the Pinup Queen sweater? I've searched the boards here quite a bit and haven't seen any mention of it.

I'm a new knitter, am working right now on Ribbed For Her Pleasure, so I feel good about knit and purl stitches. I am excited to try some sweaters and bags etc. soon, but am worried about choosing a) the right sweater for my body type and b) the right size once I choose the pattern I like.  Huh I guess I'll figure all that out with experience.

Thanks for all of your great posts... I'm so happy to have this fun new hobby and I love seeing all of your finished projects!

ipurlgirl, I *love* your under the hoodie and that was the first pattern in the book I fell in love with. I'm a true beginner Roll Eyes, am in the middle of my second scarf ever and want to try under the hoodie soon.

I'm worried about picking the right size, and that goes for any sweater I'm looking at making. You said that you made the medium and it looks nice and slightly roomy on you. (Looks awesome!) Do you mind if I ask what size you normally wear in ready-to-wear?

Thanks everyone, your posts are so helpful and inspiring!!!
