Angie's Sweater, C'est Fini!

I finished Angela's sweater last night! It's a Jared Flood design called Tinder. I've been warned about Jared Flood patterns from a couple of the knit night ladies who ended up with knitting disasters, but this sweater turned out great.



I wish I had a photo of Ang wearing the sweater because it looks A LOT better on her than it does on me. For instance, the buttons don't bust open...because it fits her properly.

Christmas Dress

A few years ago I was given this beautiful emerald green raw silk. A year after it was given to me, I decided to make myself a dress out of it for my company Christmas party. Two years after that, it's finally finished! It's pretty over the top and probably inappropriate for any occasion other than a Christmas function - so I'll be wearing it for the next 30 hours straight. I'm pretty damn proud of it. It makes me want to make MORE! MORE! MORE! pretty dresses.

The pattern is from Vogue.

These photos from Photo Booth are the best I could do without a camera.

Voila!





Have a very Merry Christmas!

Forever Infinity Scarf

I have been working on this infinity scarf FOREVER and tonight I FINALLY FINISHED IT! A few months ago I was working on it in a restaurant and I told the server that I was going to finish it by December or trash it. Well guess what? It's December 1st and I'm finished baby!! I can't believe I actually made one of my deadlines. This never happens. I mean, I should have finished it a month after I started it two years ago, but hey, it's done now and I'm so happy - because it's very pretty and soft and  it's cold outside.

Not only that, but I've finished sleeves for Angie's sweater. All I have to do now is seam up the sweater and knit the collar and button band. That should only take me three evenings of prime time tv knitting. I'm pumped.

Tomorrow I hope to get my loom set up, stay tuned!
