The bad thing about being away at college for months at a time is that the digital camera is at home, completely useless to me. Now that I'm back, though, I can take all the pictures I want. Whee!  Grin

First, a pair of mittens (from the book Vintage Knits) I made myself around Thanksgiving. They're out of thin yarn, so they're not good for playing in the snow or really really windy days, but they get me to and from class without my fingers freezing off.

(Extra picture.)

Next, the Linux Illusion scarf (the thread with the pattern is floating around somewhere).
At first it looks like stripes...

But if you tilt it, you see a penguin! And words! It's magic!



I made myself Tasha from Knitty a while back, but the pictures didn't turn out very well... The only one that came out decently was of the cable panel at the top of the bag: Click me!

Currently in the works are another Tasha for my grandmother, and Tubey for myself.



Sorry for the picture overload, I got a little camera-happy. Smiley

the mittens are adorable and I am in awe of the linux scarf (I think your pictures came out better than the other Linux link's did) I don't particularly care about Linux, but I want to do one of those myself, some day. Grin

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

So what exactly is Linux anyway??  I love the penguin and think I might switch around to do 2 penguins and skip the Linux part.

fantastic scarf!  i'm not brave enough to try something like that yet.

btw - linux is an open-source operating system modeled after unix.  in plain english - it is another way to run the computer instead of windows.

Interesting...  now I'm just trying to figure out why it's worked into a scarf pattern with a penguin...  Cheesy

Holy crap, that Linux scarf is amazing!  What kind of yarn did you use?  I started mine a few months ago, but it's stuck in my closet somewhere.

Oh dear god, I must find that pattern.  I *heart* penguins.  As for the Linux part, I could do with out, but a 2 penguin scarf...does it get any better?

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.
