Don'tcha hate it when life gets in the way? I have neglected my blog. I could give a million excuses, and many of them would be true, but I'll just go with laziness as my main reason.
Things are looking up! I have lost about ten pounds...about 20 to go...and I am on my very last summer vacation for the forseeable future (the school that I teach at is going to a year-round schedule...blech!)
Knitting has been going pretty well too...
here is my Something Red:
Its ok...I don't love it. I used KnitPicks Shine (thanks knittingmama!) My increases in the ribbing are too visible and I think that there is a better pattern for the yarn.
My Razor Cami...I like this one, but am having a little issue with the strap placement. I already frogged the straps and am in the process of devising a way to move them out from under my armpits!
Otherwise, it is super cute and soft. I used Microspun about two skeins and I cast on the extra twelve stitches for a little extra room.
The pattern can be found here.
I'm still working on Oragina...slow but steady. My next project is the the Green Cropped Cardi from knit1.
