FINALLY. I can't believe I finally finished it.

I started this sweater about this time last year, got frustrated and put it away for more than six months, picked it up last month, finished the knitting but had to steek because everything was way too wide (still is a bit, I think I might take a little in on the sides, but I am just so glad that my Irish self managed to get this thing ready for it's St. Patrick's Day debut.

I finished my Zippered Raglan! Modeled by my bf, the recipient. I don't know what I did wrong with the collar, I'm going to add a hook and eye to make sure it stands up the way I want it to. Otherwise I'm quite happy with it.

Here's my Kate. In retrospect I should have used yarn instead of embroidery thread for the face (or I should get better at embroidery, haha)

My husband wanted a hat made out of the slate and the black color (I forget what it is called).. although both are beautiful seperately, I've always hated the black/grey color scheme. Yeck!

Haha funny you should mention that, I used the slate/pitch color scheme in that yarn for this scarf:

Just to give you an idea of what the two colors of that yarn look like together (it looks a little blotchy because it's wet in the picture)

Both made out of Lion Brand Jiffy as a vegan yarn sub...

Both projects were super quick and are super warm. Thanks for looking!

OK I finally took pictures of the finished product.

and the inside...

I love this bag soooo much. It's probably my favorite thing I've knitted for myself. I'm definitely wearing it out tonight.

I just took a picture of the princess seaming I had to do on the back of the silk camisole because it came out too wide. Here it is in case you're interested:

I finished the body of this bag last night, and took a very silly picture of it as I'm delirious with the heat:

That's Twiggy (the model, not the Marilyn Manson member). I adore this technique, it's so gratifying right away when you see it taking shape that you knit like mad until it's done! I'm going to knit up the straps and so in the lining, then I'll take a picture of the finished product.

Look, an FO!

I decided to make the silk camisole two-color instead of one, using all stash yarn (Paton's Grace in fuschia for the body, Artyarns Regal Silk for the trim and edging). I was a bad knitter and didn't check my gauge so it ended up incredibly wide, I had to do some princess seaming on the back (with the help of a knitty friend) and cut the excess (eep!) and whipstitch it together. It seems to be holding up well enough and I think it adds a nice detail. Anyway here are the pictures, it looks a tad stretched out because it was still pretty damp when she tried it on.

I have closeups of the picot edging http://www.abinka.org/crafts/tanktopfinishing.JPEG and lace panel http://www.abinka.org/crafts/tanktopedgingJPEG.jpg but they came out pretty dark.

Not the best picture ever, but here it is...

From left to right, the little white shelf houses my knitting books and patterns, the sewing machine is behind my laptop on the desk, the giant chalkboard will be helpful for figuring out patterns once I re-spray it with that chalkboard stuff, then to the right of that is a big armoire full of crafting supples with two giant Rubbermaid tubs of yarn on top. Also further to the right by the window is another small table/file cabinet full of fabric. I love love love my new craftroom. I'm going to put a futon in it where the wooden chair is, but I need to find a suitable one first. Also that's my big fat kitty on the rug Smiley
