back with a vengeance
i've been knitting fiercely and have so many projects on the horizon its a little daunting. christmas was wonderful and i gifted many-a-handknit item. i finally started a hat FOR MYSELF and have included a pic of it below:
its a great little hat. i'm finished with it now but haven't taken completed photos. at this stage of the game, i had run out of yarn, but ordered another ball and have completed her.
The pattern is winter femme, a great free pattern from dmade and the yarn is SWTC Karaoke. a WONDERFUL yarn that i had raved about in a previous post. its soy silk and wool. very soft with amazing colors and subtle self-striping tendencies [like a much more calmed-down version of silk garden...]. just my style.
In other news, i've started a pair of socks with some great Italian sock wool from school products. The pattern is my own toe-up version that I'm figuring out as I go. Not sure how they'll turn out, but the colors are great. and i'm a whore for stripes. so its cool.
As promised ages ago, here are some model shots of the completed Nautilus. A great pattern of which i knit 2 of this christmas. This version was given to my step-mother, although i had jenny model it for the camera.
Now i'm off to get the word out about the new web address. the annoying thing is that i can't even access the old site to let people know of the change. pass the word along if you do end up getting here! sorry for the confusion
