* Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation

Posted on February 21st, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Review.

I finally caught the new SnB sequel at the library. It’s pretty good, although I probably won’t buy it. I’ll at least check it out again for the beginning bit on modifying patterns. The projects I could conceivably make are Russian winter (fluffy hat with ties), the felted monogram bag (by Georgia), the cat toys, and the loop stitch pillow (maybe as a rug?). Plus, I just bought yarn to make purldrop‘s Spiderweb Capelet. The photo is one for sale on her website. I hope my substitution of Paton’s Divine for the Merino Frappe works ok. The Divine is so soft and fluffy and pink and cheap. We’ll see how I do with my first try with lace. Unfortunately, the needles are currently tied up in the sweater arm I’ve been working on for 2 months, so I spent tonight trying to finally finish that.

Glad I checked: errata

Glad I checked II: thread on Craftster with lots of clarifications and a very nice one made with the Divine.

    I didn’t see that the pattern for the spider lace capelette is for sale on purldrop’s website. Did you buy it from her? I’d love to join you in knitting it. :)

    I just finished that pattern, and I wish I would have checked craftster before I started, because I had to frog the whole thing. I recently found your blog and I love it. So crafty!

    It’s not the pattern that’s for sale on the purldrop web site, it’s the capelet ($110!) I got the pattern from the book. I’m swatching it tonight, since I finally reclaimed the needles from the sweater. People on Craftster seem to think bigger needles are better, so I may have to get some other ones. We’ll see.

    What is the name of the book? I would love to make that capelet
