I think the book is great for beginners and those who are experienced alike, actually.  The instructions in the "how to" section are written very clearly and have accompanying diagrams.  

Right now I am working on two Coney Island Fireworks scarves for friends for Xmas, after which it is on to the Umbilical Cord hat for a friend's baby!

Pinktalk: read all about it.

i too must recommend the stitch n bitch book. it's way better than any sort of "knitting for dummies" or other stupid beginner book and waaaay more hip.

i'm working on the felted marsupial tote right now. i'll post pics when more is done

I also highly recommend this book. I didn't know anything about knitting when I started, and I'm finishing up my 3rd scarf. The book gives clear directions, and Debbie's enthusiasm for knitting shows in her writing.

The Coney Island Fireworks scarf was my first project. It really looks like fireworks falling off of my scarf. It was great for a first project because the eyelash yarn covers up any dropped stitches. I was making it for myself, but my sister asked for it for Xmas when I told her about it.

I've  made the skully sweater and totally dig it.  I have inspired a friend to learn to knit because of it, she shrieks and calls it my "pirate sweater"

I'd throw a pick up on here, but I'm on a different comp, no access to it here.

I'm so excited, Deb's coming to our town in December.  Hopefully our fledgeling stitch n bitch might attract a few members when she shows up.

I'm also currently making the Skully sweater.  I'm also currently stalled on it. due to work and genereal blahness. But, I do have to say, it does go together fast.  I'm doing mine in  red with grey skulls, tho...

<snipped>....  Nestled in a bag are the yarns for the Alien Illusion scarf (for my nephew) ...<snipped>
I'm working on the Alien Illusion scarf right now - beware!  The chart is backwards - if you knit it as it says  you end up with black aliens on a green background Angry  That's how my first two aliens are.  Since you're supposed to do 6 repeats, mine will end up black, black, green, black, green, green.  which I think will be ok.  To get it the right way around, I'm reversing the knit vs. purl on every other row, but you could just as easily switch the colors so that you use black when it says green and vice versa.

i accidentally did that, too! i think it looks kinda cool though with the alien having glowing green eyes.

i didn't think the chart was backwards, but it's my first-ever chart project, and instead of going back and forth on the rows (like in knitting) i started where the numbers are as the beginning of whatever row i was on.
