Good Intentions

Despite my best intentions I've been sucked into the black hole of school. Unfortunately even my knitting has taken a hit and I haven't been nearly as productive as I would have hoped too. I did manage to start in on some of my holiday projects and finished my first of six headbands for my nieces by marriage. A slightly modifited version of Sweatshop of Love's Detriot Tiger's Bow Headband these will look so cute on all of them. Can't wait to get started on the next ones!

Tube Tops!

Just in time for winter I finished a lovely tube top. This is the first item I've made following a chart. The diamond pattern is made up of knits and purls and just repeats itself. Other than losing my place constantly I really enjoyed following a chart. I felt so accomplished watching the pattern come together.

It's really difficult to take pictures of yourself in a tube top where you can actually see the item and still see the person. I'm sure I looked a little crazy if you saw me during the process.

knit out of a nice light weight sport cotton with these adorable fabric buttons I bought from Allyson over at the Sweat Shop of Love booth at Renegade this top is going to be great to break out in about...six months.

Guess I need to get my winter knitting into hyper drive!

Just a little sneak peak of what I've been working on.
Even though I haven't been posting much I've been knitting up a storm- I swear!
I've got to get some good sunlight to document my recent projects and then there will be a flurry over here soon.
