Well, I promised a knitting update and here it is:
My Rosalie hat:
Based on a hat that Rosalie wore during one of the cafeteria scenes:
I have shared it on Ravelry and people are actually interested in a pattern!!! It will need a bit of reworking: more lacy and more slouchy. But still, the idea of designing a pattern and sharing it with others is something I never thought I’d be doing when I began knitting 4 years ago.
These are my goth-y gauntlets:
The pattern is Twisted Stitches’ Armwarmers. And I wear them very often. I get a lot of compliments on them as well.
Um, I just finished a pair of Maine Morning Mitts, but I don’t have a picture yet. They are for my mom’s friend for Christmas. And I really enjoyed the pattern so I decided to use the rest of the yarn that I had from my cousins’ hats last year to make matching Mitts, but I just finished one and doubt I’ll have enough left for a second one.
The other MAJOR Christmas present. The only one I had really intended on making is my mom’s Shoalwater Shawl. Here is a WIP Pic:
Oh, and the Winter Twilight Mitts WIP pic: (yea I’ve been a bit obsessed with fingerless mitts lately)
I overdyed the secondary yarn (the not-blue one) from a green and orange colorway with grape Kool-Aide, but instead of a dark purple I got more of a purpley, greeny, orangy, color.
Ok, well I oughtta get back to my knitting and napping. I have the newest version of Sense and Sensibility in the DVD player and some meds to take.
