Okay, I'll put it up now - it's being gifted tomorrow, and I am once again having my usual doubts and anxieties:
Project: 'Seda' vest from KnitPicks
Yarn: KnitPicks 'Wool of the Andes' 100% wool, Heathered Green
Started: March 6, 2007
Finished(including blocking): March 26, 2007
The edges are just lovely - steeking is my friend! But my favourite detail on this puppy, apart from the cabled edgings, is the back shaping:
is that not the loveliest little patch? Pulls it in at the waist, and is such an original detail - I am generally pretty pleased with the way it's come out, but nervous... you know?
And because I was semi-organized, I made a felted gift bag, which I REALLY like, and may have to make for myself at some point:
Project: Tote Bag from One Skein Knits (Leigh Radford)
Yarn: Lion Brand 'Wool' in Lemongrass and Dark Teal
Started: March 23, 2007
Finished: March 25, 2007
It's from One Skein Knits by Leigh Radford, but actually took more than 4...
and in other news, I got a whack of new stuff to knit up for Artisan Knitworks:
finished the front of one this afternoon, so it's a quick knit, and so, so soft and pretty - this is totally the way to go - I can play with stuff, and be paid - very happy making!
And now, am also trying to finish the Indigo Fire socks from a few posts back, because I would like to knit non-matching socks for my nieces, who are turning 15 in a couple of weeks - the birthday celebrations have been moved up to Easter, and I am looking at at least 2 pairs of socks, maybe 3 (gives them each an extra one to mismatch) - so why am I typing? I've got to get a move on... later, dahlins...
