I do TOO still KNIT!
Here is what I have completed lately:
Roll brim hat made out of one Sken of NORO Shinano 65% Wool and 35% Silk for my little brother Pablo. I made him a ribbed scarf about a year ago with similar colors and told him i would make him a hat to match. I have to admit, I normally do not like different colored yarn. I am a one color, consistent type of girl. But man-0-man am I in love with this NORO. I hope he likes it too.
Tony's mom wants a sweater for her birthday. I have a hard enough time with sizing for sweaters for myself, I did not want to make a horrible sizing mistake with her. Plus, I have not made a sweater for my own mom, she would be so upset if I made one for Tony's mom first. So I compromised in my mind and decided to make her this Bulky Circular Bolero provided by ms. gleek. I ran out of the Gedifra Living in Cabernet, and cannot wait for the rest to arrive. We are celebrating her birthday this Saturday and I really want to give it to her. Oh the pressure!!
Last but not least is my Phildar Asymmetrical Sweater. Knit on US size 3, and it is killing meeeee!! I always choose the projects with the small gauge - why?!?! It is turning out really pretty though - take a look:
That right there is the back, right front and almost all of the left front. Now all I have to do is the sleeves, button band and neck. Not much - right? :) I bought a great gray skirt that I think will look so cute with this sweater once it is done. I want to make a couple more small Secret Ava Projects (SAP) before the baby shower next weekend, so this is going to have to wait for a while until those are done.
I cannot believe Ava is almost here, and not only do I get a new niece, but I get to finally share all my projects with you guys.
Oh, one more pic:
