Try to remember. It's only a game.

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!

They are simply beautiful. I love the colors on both tops, esp. the Orangina.

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!

Those are so pretty!  What museum do you work in?  I live in Santa Clara (near San Jose.)
