Hay fellow knitters.  I love looking through this forum for inspiration and motivation.  I just wanted to show you all some of the neat items I've knitted recently in hopes to inspire and motivate some of you!

This first one is just a cute racerback top



this thread i dyed myself.  it was my first handpainted batch.  i used dharma's nt pigment dye.  I'll use fiber reactive dyes from now on.  This stuff fades like crazy Sad



This next one is one of my favorites.  It was a nice blend of angora/ramie/cotton and so soft and flowey.



And I finally made something for myself.  It's just a simple babydoll tank, but ti's awesome and I love it.  I think I'll amke a shrug to go with it so I can wear it all winter long!



And a funky felted tote!





Oh, and all the yarn used for all these projects (and all my projects) are made from recycled yarn.  It's a bit tedious ripping/unwinding but it's so much cheaper then buying new yarn and it feels really good knowing that I've recycled/repurposed unwanted clothing!

Thanks for looking everyone!

I like them all.  Did you use patterns or make them all up?  Love the shape of that tote bag.  Your models are all very cute also.

Beautiful girls and beautiful knitting!  They all look great!  I especially love the tote and the first tank top on the chubby angel!  Any chance of patterns?
