Thanks Kittymom13 and alwaysinmyroom, I felt much better after reading both of your responses. Smiley

I finished the scarf yesterday:

It turned out the right length!  Yay~

I was working on this while waiting for my boyfriend to finish voting at our neighboring polling place on Election Day.  A sweet, white-haired, 80-something year old man with a cane walked up to me, smiled, and asked me, "Are you knitting for a baby?"  I was caught off-guard and started blushing madly. ("Do I look pregnant? O_O")  Then I recovered and told him, "No, I'm knitting for me. Smiley"  He chuckled a bit and wished me a nice day.  I wonder if people in his generation only knit when they were expecting.  Anyhow, I thought it was cute, once I got over the embarrassment.

2  Eternity scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Rinoa1024 on: November 06, 2010 06:36:18 PM
Quick stashbusting project.  Took me about a week to finish it.  Nice, mindless, TV knitting.  Cheesy

Knit from two skeins of Classic Elite '03 Tweed.

I finished another project yayy.  This time, it's a beanie for my boyfriend:

Working on an eternity scarf from stash yarn:

I did a gauge swatch knitting flat but forgot that I'd be knitting this in the round.  Sad  It looks smaller than expected but hopefully a good blocking will stretch it out to the correct length.  If not, I hope it looks ok as a cowl!

4  Renegade beanie in Knitting: Completed Projects by Rinoa1024 on: November 02, 2010 05:18:58 PM
This is a double knit, reversible beanie knit from Knitpicks Essential (from stash, yay!)  The logo is the "renegade" logo from Mass Effect.  I started knitting this beanie for my boyfriend sometime in February (after the release of Mass Effect 2) and finished it in April...only to find that it was an inch too short for his head. Sad  It sat unworn for a few months before I frogged and reknit the crown about 2 weeks ago.  Finished blocking on Halloween.  Now he has a new winter hat. Smiley

He's normally camera-shy but was sweet enough to model for me.

At first he was like...

But then he lol'd. Tongue

Yay, I finally finished my cardi!

The entire sweater, even the buttons, is from stash. Smiley

Edit:  I crocheted these in April right after I made Cutethulhu but forgot to take pictures~

6  Lacy Cropped Cardi in Knitting: Completed Projects by Rinoa1024 on: October 21, 2010 02:10:48 PM
I finally FINALLY finished my first seamed sweater!  I started this in July. I had the back, fronts, and one sleeve knitted up for the longest time but didn't finish the second sleeve until about 6 weeks after everything else.  Then, the finished pieces languished in my knitting pile for about a month before I had the motivation to block them.  Started the seaming process around the start of football season and completed the finishing in about a week.  Took pictures today. Smiley

The pattern is the #09 Cropped Cardigan by Robin Melanson from the Spring/Summer 2010 issue of Vogue Knitting.  It's knit up in GGH Soft Kid.  The mohair and wool content means I can actually get some wear out of it this year, despite my procrastination on the finishing.  I'm not a fan of the blocking process (it took three hours and gave me a backache) but I really like seaming, especially straight side seams. Smiley

Finished another quick stashbusting project last night, a new water bottle cozy.  My other one got all stretched out from use and kept sliding off.  I used a partial skein of Elann Esprit left over from knitting these shorts.  Unfortunately, I STILL have an egg-sized ball left! Sad

I finally motivated myself to block these cardi pieces that have been lying around for about a month now.  My back hurts from being hunched over for three hours, but it feels great to get this part over with!

Now I get to look forward to the seaming and neckband/buttonband knitting.  This is my first seamed sweater so I'm hoping my seaming won't ruin the finished product.  Set-in sleeves! (Eep!)

I LOVE how your woven blanket looks LaughingLark!

I've been slogging away on and off on a lacy cardigan.  The only thing I've finished lately is a dog sweater for a co-worker's dog (no pictures unfortunately Sad) and this hat that I cast on and finished today.  I needed something mindless to knit while watching football and I've been trying to figure out what to make with this random ball of Rowan Chunky Print.  Ysolda's Urchin fit the bill nicely. Smiley

I'm finding it hard to motivate myself to finish this cardi.  All that's left is to block the pieces, sew them together, and knit the buttonbands and neckband.  Lately, I'm finding that I'd much rather lay in bed and read than finish this project.  Embarrassed

I finally finished another stashbuster project.  I have been spending too much time playing video games and not knitting/crocheting.  I wish I could sprout two more arms so I can knit and game at the same time.  Cry

I really want to crochet tawashis after seeing these cute rainbow tawashis but I cannot watch World Cup matches and crochet at the same time. Sad  I need another knitting project...

10  Evening Shell by Wenlan Chia - more stashbusting! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Rinoa1024 on: June 25, 2010 06:27:58 PM
This project was birthed when I saw a cute tunic-length version of Wenlan Chia's Evening Shell on Ravelry knit out of three skeins of Wool-ease Thick & Quick in taupe.  I had the exact same color and amount of that yarn in stash that I had no idea what to do with until I saw that project.  Happy coincidence.  Grin  Unfortunately, I ended up using only two skeins!  Now I have yet another leftover skein of yarn that I need to find a project for.  Angry

This is the first sweater I've knit.  I usually knit scarves and hats because I figure I can wear them with more outfits than a sweater and they knit up fast.  I have no idea how else to style this other than over a t-shirt and leggings/tight jeans.  Huh
