I think the stress from two jobs and my senior research project on superheroes gave me some kind of magical knitting motivation powers...
Anyway, on with the FOs!
This is Orangina, which was a pretty fast knit. I get so many compliments on it every time I wear it. I used the recommended yarn in Tutti Fruitti (which I swear isn't as pink-looking in real life. Sorry, I just can't work the pink)


And this is Rusted Root, knitted up in the recommended yarn in Gold Dust. The fit's a little awkward, mostly because it's a bit long and I have a really short torso, but I'll live. It'll probably fit better after blocking. I'm also absolutely in love with the color:


It's a bit cold for these to wear outside in San Francisco, but the museum I work at is always freakishly warm so at least I can wear them to work.
Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks for the inspiration everyone!

Wow, nice job on both! I admire someone who can rock yellow and orange. (Great colors, but they look awful on me.) I hope you get to wear them a lot, they deserve it!

Great tops! I love those bright colours!

I think this is the Rusted Root pattern: http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item.cfm/2367447/3289215. I want to try knitting that one now! Was it easy?

Thanks everyone!!
The Rusted Root pattern was created by those wonderful ladies at Zephyr Style, you can buy the pattern here:
http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item.cfm/2367447/3289215
Rusted Root was super easy, and the lace kept it interesting. I botched the lace in a few places, but I can live with it.

The Orangina pattern is by Stefanie Japel, who is far more punk rock than I'll ever be. You can find it in her pattern shop here:

There's also knitalongs for Rusted Root and Orangina, which are really helpful and full of shiny, shiny pictures to drool over.

Super cute! I especially like the second one. It has a really cute vintage-y look to it.
