Sweater for Ash

Over 4 years ago I bought myself a bunch of forest green Cascade Eco with the intention of knitting my very first adult sized sweater. I knit the back of the sweater, but I put the project on hold to knit the Owls Sweater with our newly formed "knit night".

Since then I've knit and sewn and woven a few things, mostly gifts, but I still hadn't knit myself a sweater. I decided to pick up the green yarn and a new pattern and start a sweater for me. But as soon as I started knitting it, I knew it wasn't for me at all - it was for Ashley! Here are a few iPhone photos from last night:







I had to wear it at least once before giving it away though :) so I wore it to work earlier that day and sent Ash a selfie from the staff ladies room...


I'm already well into my next knitting project and can't wait to share the details!

Weaving, Hump Day, Full Moon

Heading up to Terrace this weekend for my Gramma's 70th birthday. Going to spend some time with family and some time in nature - might even get a chance to ride some horses! I'm also hoping to make a good dent in a new knitting project that I'm bringing along.

Garter for Ash

My super-special, beautiful, awesome, amazing, mega-best bestie just got married a couple weeks ago. I knit this little blue lacy leaf garter for her to wear on her wedding day. Here's a grainy cellphone photo!

On Hold

Hoping to re-light the fire soon. I could really use some inspiration to finish up these projects. I will blame school for taking up too much of my time...

Wildcat Skirt for Freddie

Whipped up this little number yesterday for Freddie's 4th birthday. She's a bit of a fashionista and I'm hoping she can incorporate it into her wild wardrobe!
