Bamboo Vest

So I started a new project, because apparently one or two or five is not enough. I have four balls of Moda Dea Bamboo Wool in a beautiful green color that I've been trying to find the perfect project for. Well I gave up on that, and decided to make a simple vest instead. I haven't ever made a garment like this before, so I figure I have to start somewhere, and I didn't want to be overly ambitious. Soo....hopefully I will have enough yarn, and when it starts to look more like something you'd actually wear, I'll post pictures.

Long time, no post

So I've frantically been trying to finish my undergraduate thesis, so I apparently haven't posted since November. Wow. That doesn't mean I haven't been knitting.

Let's see. I had some eBay bucks that needed to be used, so I bought some really fine crochet yarn to make jewelry. My favorite earrings I've made so far are here:

My sister is collaborating with me on these by adding beads and stuff.

Okay, next up, my mom bought me some great chunky yarn, so I made a vest and decided I didn't like it and frogged it, but I am going to make another vest out of it hopefully. Anyway, here are some pics pre-destruction.
Finally, I have made a lot of progress on Justin's Aston Villa scarf, but I don't have any pics of that.

As soon as my friend Megan buys some yarn, I plan to make a replica Winter Olympic hat for her sister, whose blog is over at Check it out.

I think that'll do for now friends!
