I finally knit a garment. I have a mountain of scarves and a very few shawls, but now I have something that can be worn as CLOTHING and I'm so excited. This is the free Talia pattern that I found on ravelry. It would have been a quick knit if I sat down for more than two minutes at a time to work on it.

I used Vanna's Choice yarn that I got on sale at Michael's and have been pretty happy with it. We'll see if it pills later on after some wear. You'll notice a few flubs on the button band that I choose to believe are charming. Mostly, I couldn't be bothered to fix them so oh well. More pictures and details on my blog.

Very nice. I like how it looks quite fitted, and the design around the edge is great.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Wowza!  That is beautiful.  I'm really impressed and in awe of your transition from scarves and shawls to clothing.  (I'm still at the dishcloth stage myself... Undecided)   It shows off your figure, your knitting skills, and your fashion flair. 

What you call your flubs are what I call the charm of homemade.  They are so minor that probably if you didn't call attention to them most would not see at all.  The rest of us are all so busy wiping the drool off our faces, we can't see anything but the beautiful design and skill. 

You have made something that no one else in the universe has.  It is unique and wonderful.  I'm impressed.  Very, very nice work.  I hope I can knit one too some day.
