I designed this vest out of some recycled cotton I got during a Salvation Army sale. Normally I'd wear it with a white tank, but I think I like it with the BRMC tank..

I *finally* finished my razor tank. This is a great pattern, but I got bored with the lace repeat really fast. I was not feeling like knitting the straps, so i sewed some 1" elastic in and it does the job just fine. All in all a very satisfying knit. Thanks OhMyStars for your lovely pattern! Sorry you can't really see the lace too well...

Aaand a Noro purse! With a funky little pin courtesy of Avon.

Noro's 100% percent wool, right? That should felt, right? Ha. I ran it through the machine FIVE TIMES. And then I went at it by hand for about 20 minutes.You can still see the stitches pretty clearly. I still love it though!


If you have ANY questions/comments, let me know!

I LOVE that vest! Any chance of a pattern?
Your razor cami turned out well! I did mine in two colours of pink mercerized cotton and forgot to take pictures of it before sending it off to Seattle.
As for the bag, who cares about the stitch definition? The colourway is totally rad.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.

I, too, would be grateful of a pattern if you were inclined to write one. That vest is really something, especially with the colour you've chosen - and you're right, it looks great with that top. I love the shape of it and the edging.

I love your vest! The color is awesome.

Thank you all so much! As for a pattern, well, hmm. The construction was a little bit funky, but I think I might be able to put something together. I'll see what I can do!

That yellow tank is really cute!
The Razor Cami looks nice too! I love that pattern and hope I can actually get around to knitting it before this summer's over.  Cheesy
