There's Been Knitting

Here is the February Lady in Red. I had to wait for the longer cord to come from Knit Picks (I'm using options needles -- LOVE them).

I have a ways to go, but so far I know she fits me. You might recall that I have in past overestimated my size and made garments that were too big for me and I ended up annoyed. Frogging the tomato was actually a relief because I knew I could make something better with the yarn (Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton in Tomato). I am, after all, a product knitter, rather than a process knitter.

I've also almost finished my Comfy Toddler Poncho which I will write up and put on Ravelry. Plan is to put a picot trim on the bottom edge (I don't really like fringe so much). The colors are a little off because there wasn't enough light for the photo, but you get the idea.

I've also been making little sewn is one of the eye pillows, which I think I might start selling on Etsy. Not sure yet.

Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. VERY nice! And yes! Start selling them on etsy!

    I'm about to cut the fabrics for my first quilt - well, placement in quilt format!

    I saw your message on my blog about the benefit for Alanna - thank you so much. :)

  6. Very nice! Glad someone is knitting. I think I found my mojo though... now, to have time to use it!
