81  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: baby's first tattoo yarn question on: September 09, 2006 08:59:43 AM
I JUST finished this sweater -- I haven't even taken pics yet.  I used Shepherd Baby Wool 4-ply (it's a superwash, too).  It was not too expensive, especially since I made the whole sweater (coordinating color and main color) with 3 balls.  In fact, I think I have enough yarn leftover for socks. 

My gauge was dead on with this yarn on the recommended 3's. 

It's a beautiful sweater!  Have fun!

Oh, I LOVE your yarn choice!  This pattern is wonderful.  Although, I am the one with the plastic showing through...  I still love it.

I also love the Bob Barker purse.  And, of course, I understand why you're upset.  Most people can't fathom the amount of time or expense that knitting is.  When they do find out, many of those people wonder why we don't just go buy sweaters and hats and novelty items like others do.  It's so hard to explain to people what knitting really is and the sense of pride and accomplishment you get when you finish something remarkable. 

That purse is a remarkable finish.  I am learning intarsia at my LYS today after work so I can finish a baby sweater.  I only hope my looks that good!

hey, did you guys see my post on the completed objects about the DND mind flayer that I knitted?  You can check it out on my blog.  I don't know how this thread totally evaded me, but I am looking forward to the KAL on the blog.  I have a lot of sci-fi ideas.

Wow, I love that.  I am currently working on my first project with intarsia -- Baby's First Tatoo -- for my niece to be born in December.  I'm getting nervous the closer I get to the front panels, though! 

My daughter would LOVE an octopus sweater like that.  In pink, of course. 

Way to go!

Wow, that's too nice.  I was worried about designing something on my own, but it really wasn't so bad.  I knew what I wanted, and I just tried until I got it.  I plan on designing more things as soon as school settles down (I'm a teacher).  Thanks for the encouragement.

Out of curiosity, did the paint irritate at all?  I can't imagine wearing something that had been painted, although I am strongly considering it.  Once the babies are older, we are hoping to make GenCon one of our yearly vacations, since we aren't that close to Indianapolis.  (We're in Nashville.) 

I just have fond thoughts of chain mail.  When I started knitting only a few months ago, my husband's first comments were "can you make me some full-body chain mail" and "can you knit me a huge, black cloak to wear for a LARP?"

Smiley  it is indeed fun stuff.  nice work.  oh, and thanks for the comment on my blog about the illithid, huhwhat?!

Wow!  Great job!  It looks great! 

I'm glad it worked out for you.  You're motivating me to cast on for another.

WOW.  That's awesome.  Oh, and I'm jealous that you got to go to GenCon.  Sounds like SO much fun.

Mine was pretty long before I assembled it.  There's a lot of the length taken up making the base of the doll.  Plus, it looks different when it's stuffed.  The arms fit just fine.  Besides, if your arms look squatty, you could always do a few tentacles on the hands! 

Thanks for all the kind words.  I cursed this project a few times but was glad when it came together.
