Hey all,
So I know all you devoted knitters are mostly likely in love with the new Debbie Stoller book, "Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook," and most likely following her book tour blog (http://www.knithappens.com/), right?

Well, I thought it'd be cool to post finished projects from this most awesome book.

So, here goes:

I started out with the "Powerful Wrist Protection" cuffs.

Here they are:

I love this project because they're wicked cute and I churned one out in an hours. I didn't use the recommended yarn (Katia Mississippi) only because I thought this would be a good opportunity to use up some of my ridiculously huge yarn stash.

Then, yesterday I headed to a new-ish yarn store in Arlington, MA (http://www.knitroomboston.com/) and picked up the supplies for the "Coney Island Fireworks Scarf."

Here's the scarf:

And, here's a close-up:

Since it's knit up on #15's, it went super fast (~2-3 hours). I know I should be knitting holidays gifts for people. . . but I just might have to hold onto this one for myself!

Does anyone else have finished projects from "Stitch 'n Bitch?" Please post 'em!

I made these for my 13 year old cousin.  I hope she likes them.

I'm working on the Hot Head hat for my bf.  But I guess I'm the slowest knitter in the history of time b/c it says "in just two hours."  In about 2 hours, I've only got maybe 2 inches done!  I hope I get faster...

Hey I made the hot head hat but in pastels.  I made the small but it's too big for my head so it will be someone's christmas present.

I have finished the Keyhole Scarf for myself and the Hot Head hat for my boyfriend.

I followed the instructions for the scarf exactly, but I modified the hat a bit. He's wearing it now, but I will post pictures when he (and it) gets home.    Cheesy

Thos are all ADORABLE! I'm not much for sewing (not quite yet, at least  Undecided), but I see girls everyday at the mall paying $6-$8 a piece for them! Sheesh! But yes, those turned out very nice.

Allison -- what modifications did you make to the Hot Head hat?  Like, was the pattern a little off, or something?  Just curious since I'm about halfway through it now.  (I'm not using the color pattern, just the same yarn throughout.)

I used size 13 16in circular needles instead of the recommended 10 1/2 straights.

In addition, I used a different brand of yarn: Nova Super Chunky by Sirdar- 50% Wool and 50% Acrylic.

I cast on the 64 sts. for the large size, and I had him try it on periodically until he was happy with the length. I'm sure it was a combination of the larger needles and the thicker yarn, but I only needed to knit 26 rows before I started to dec. and close it off. That was actually less than the amount for the small hat.

I'm glad I did the measurements that way, because it sounds like Creatingme followed the exact directions and found the hat to be too big.

Finally, I used different colors. But that dosen't really matter.  :>

They're so cool. I wish I was your cousin.

Where did you get the chart for the skullies? I've already made one wrist band (blundered horridly, but no one else seems to notice), started the hot head hat, and tagged many of the projects in stitch and bitch for future knitting projects...
