Like probably every Stitch 'n Bitcher, I have way too many projects running at the same time, so let me introduce you to my Overambitious Embroidery Project From Hell: a very 80s portrait of Morrissey and Johnny Marr of the Smiths.

This is the pattern:

This is how it progressed:

I have no idea whether it will ever be done, but I'll keep trying. Once in a while, I get the spirit and work on it for a while.

I still feel insane that I started it. But, I do bits at a time, that makes it bearable.

OH MY GOD I HAVE TO MAKE THAT!!

The Calypso and Psychedelic colorways both make fantastic rainbows. The only trouble is that when you get to the end of the skein, you're about halfway through the rainbow, so you lose quite a bit of yarn to keep the colors matching. It's less of an issue with the other colorways where the colors don't need to be in a specific order.

The hat I posted above used Psychedelic. I'm doing the same pattern now using Calypso and it's coming out nicely.

My head's been pretty stuck on making this sweater with fewer, wider stripes colored like a hudson bay blanket, but I feel like I need to finish the sweater I'm in the middle of before starting anything else.

My first dress made sans-pattern. The top looks a bit like a pillow case, but otherwise I'm happy with how it turned out.

Another Pokemon hat, this time it's Umbreon, made for another friend

Great stuff, especially love the house elf hat (and your little sun earring!).

This buttony has been sitting 98% completed on needles since 2008. So I finally busted it out and finished it.

I know it's not as awesome as what you guys can do, but I am actually really proud.

You are doing very good. Your stitches look even. Yes once you learn to purl it will open up a whole new knitting world. Then you learn different increase and decrease stitches and you can knit lace. Leaf patterns are a favorite. They are way less complicated than they look.

Warning though, when I first learned to purl, I hated it. Felt like I was knitting backwards. But after months, I got used to it and I don't mind the purl stitch at all. Maybe others have had the same experience. Not sure.

It was a bit of a bugbear to learn how to purl continental after learning how to do it English style first, because it feels much different, but now that I'm used to it, it seems easier in continental.

I don't know which style I learned! Continental?
I put the thread in front of the left needle, then slip the right needle into the next stitch from the right (and from behind the thread) and pull the thread through from left to right, and the stitch slips onto the right needle. Is this an understandable description, and is there any other way to purl??

sounds like continental to me. especially if you learned in europe...
in english knitting you throw the yarn with your right hand.

I find continental much quicker, but I'm also left handed so it feels so much more natural to me.

I'm so going to watch youtube videos and compare knitting styles.
English knitting might be what I once watched an Italian granny do, it was kind of confusing.
