haha!  i don't look very good in hats, either.  luckily, my odessa is destined for my gf.  i started it on th 18th and finished it on the 21st.  hurrah!

oh, and i used pretty much exactly one skein of knitpicks shine sport in grass.  woo hoo!

apparently, my cat just couldn't stay out of the picture.  oh, wait...

if i were to make one for myself, i'd probably do an inch or two more before starting to decrease.  big head + big hair = need for a big hat.

it was TOTALLY that final yo!  i frogged back to the ribbing about an hour ago and started reknitting the lace and figured it out very easily after that.  hurrah!

here's where i am now...

sorry for the craptastic picture quality.  i usually try to take pictures in natural light, but it was late when i finally got to work on this today.

i just started working on an odessa for my gf yesterday (yay for vacation days!).

i'm using knitpicks shine sport in grass...

as of yesterday afternoon, i only had a bit done.  i'm probably about an inch or two beyond this point now.

i'm about 90% done with my ms. marigold...but i ran out of yarn.  i only bought three skeins (knit picks elegance in grass), but my gauge ended up being waaay off.  i want it to end up being ~34" in the bust, but had to cast on for the 44" size.  good times.  i'm done with about an inch or so of the bottome ribbing, but i think i'm going to rip back and do a bit more stockinette.  after that, i'll do the ribbing, neckline, and ruffles.

i'm trying to do the stashalong, so i'm sort of disappointed that i have to buy more yarn for this.  i thought it would be a nice, easy knit, but the gauge totally screwed me up.  did anyone get gauge with the recommended yarn and needles?

hi, everyone.

i started the razor cami a few weeks ago, and am having major issues with the lace pattern.  basically, the YOs are veering drastically to the right.  whatever i'm doing wrong i'm doing wrong consistently, but that doesn't really make me feel any better.  any thoughts on what might be going on here?

you can find another, bigger picture here.
