I finished most of these a while ago, and just now got to putting them on flickr.

First, I give you Mariah:

mariah 2 by corbeau64, on Flickr
Knit in Naturally aran 10-ply, in a size way too large for me (not intentionally; I started before I really understood knit sizes vs. regular sizes. By the time I got it, I was working on the hood and there was no way I was ripping back!)

Next, Calorimetry:

It's so soft, it's ridiculous. (Elsebeth Lavold Angora in lime green- this is a great yarn for small projects!)

And lastly, a little something I winged:

mittens 1 by corbeau64, on Flickr

Also in Elsebeth Lavold Angora, lime green and peacock blue.

How do you like the angora?

I love your work. Did you happen to make the skirt that you show in the photo under Mariah?

Thanks for fixing the link for me, miyoko79!

I am now addicted to the angora, but only for small projects- it only comes in 92 yd hanks, so to get enough for a large project would be cost prohibitive. I did not make the skirt- it's actually a dress lent to the store where I work by one of our regular customers so our dress form's shame would be covered!
(And thank you buy the way!)

Very cute.  I like the buttons on your Mariah.  And the that lime green color is awesome.

I love how you did your buttons!  I'm making Mariah too, and I was dreading finishing it because I don't like zippers in sweaters but didn't have a clue how to finish it otherwise.  Now I do!  A proper kick in the pants.

very nice! you're very talented!

i also made the calorimetry head scarf from knitty.com mine's in Patons SWS in Natural Pink. the green, pink, and whit stripes look very pretty in the final piece.

i do love it in green though.

i have some alpaca, and have no clue what to make with it! if i have enough, i think i'll make another calorimetry just like you did.
