Strangelittlemama, I haven't made the little black top, but you might want to read this from the woman who created the pattern.

Hi, I'm new to both Craftster and knitting. I love the Stitch 'n Bitch book! I have already made the Sparkle Hat without the paillettes now I'm ready to knit it with the sparkle.

My question: does anyone have any idea what size the paillettes are? I'm trying to get them through MJ and they want to know what size (in mm) I need. Needless to say, I haven't the slightest idea. Thanks!

The umbilical cord hat! I used Patons Canadiana - what the pattern called for. It's a dusky rose (the picture doesn't quite do the color justice) and it's a present for my sister-in-law's baby shower. I plan to make a few more for my 3 month old niece and 3 month old first-cousin-once-removed-in-law too. Smiley It went really fast and I did the entire thing on dpns. The last few stitches slid around a lot, but I think that just means I need shorter dpns. Wink

This is my modification of the kittyville hat

I decided that I wanted a big flower rather than the ears and earflaps... here is the detail (thanks beeosh for recomending the knitting embelishments book!)

Also, here is my version of the needle holder

and the interior

I Love SNB!

Well, my Skully sweater is finished.  It's only a minor disaster.  The knitting is fine but the sizing is totally off.  I was making this for my husband and I thought I had the measurements all figured out.  Unfortunately, as many of you discovered before me, the armholes are way off.  I have to conclude that the pattern was designed with a woman's proportions in mind.  I'm blocking the sweater now hoping it will fit me in the end (though the arms will be a bit long).  Hopefully it won't be a total loss as this was my first ever sweater project.  *SIGH*

Yay! SNB fun! I taught myself to knit using the internet back in October, but after my mom bought me this book for my birthday last month, I've really began to *understand* knitting. Besides the great teaching, this is the only knitting book I've ever seen that has patterns that don't look like they were fashioned in 1988. And when I decided to tackle my first sweater last week, my SOS emails were answered quickly and kindly.

My first project was the Chinese Charm bag, except without the charm, or the pretty yarn, or the correct guage.  It's a little small, but it's functional enough, if not just a little ugly. It's a face only a new knitter could love.

My current work-in-progress is the Peppermint Twist sweater, except without the peppermint colors or any twist, except maybe my variation on the stripe pattern. So, maybe it's just the sweater. I'm super excited to actually be making this (and it's working out so far!):


When I get it done I'll share more!

Edited: Maybe the link makes it easier...

Those both look fantastic!!

Here is my version of the Skully sweater.  This is my first  completed sweater ever, and I think it turned out well.  Husband thinks so too, even if his expression doesn't show it.  I also had problems with the armholes being too small, despite what I thought was correct measurements on my part.  My solution was the "idiot solution"--rip out the front and back pieces and re-knit them.  Insane, yes, but worth it in the end.  I also added decreases to the sleeves so they would be tapered, and not hang wide at the bottom.  Go SnB!

Hey everyone.  I finally got to post a picture of my version of the "hot head" hat.

First it's an X-large size ( I co 68 stitches) so it can fit over my hair.  I also wanted to add yellow so it could be  Packers colors instead of Eagles colors.  Anyway I followed the knitting pattern with just the three colors and it worked out fine.  Now I'm doing one in a watermelon pattern.

I get sh*t done!
