Knit, Me-Shell, Knit!

These are the adventures of a girl gone mad.

No one ever said I was camera-shy...

My mom didn't want to pose for the pics, so I did instead. Here is the Clapotis I finished for her using Artyarns Regal Silk, color #123.

She also made a Clapotis with 4 balls (I think) of Mango Moon Recycled Silk. It's super heavy and the colors are pretty bright, but it's very nice. Except that it sheds.

It would probably be a good idea to post more often.

1. So I finished the clapotis for my mom. It's beautiful.

2. Also finished the Anthropologie-inspired capelet.

3. Leaf tee (see previous post.) Finito.

4. Not just one, but TWO pair of Knucks from Knitty. One pair for my brother, one for my little cousin for her birthday. I think it's safe to say I've overcome the aggravation of learning to use dpn's.

5. The vintage dress patterns.....we bought the fabric, my mom gave it a good try, and it seems nearly impossible to make this dress. We'll keep trying, but I found a nice dress this week to wear to the wedding tomorrow. No worries.

Now, to get some pictures of these fantastic finished objects of mine....
