Just in time for weather too cool to wear it in, I finished the Cherry Bomb Tank!

Tank top 001

Details: The yarn was Soy Naturals from Bernat; a soy/acrylic blend on size 4 and 6 US needles. The color is Seasalt, a very light blue clor. I added a single crochet border to the neck line to tighten it up a bit. The yarn can be a little slipper/splitty but other than that it was a pleasure to knit with.

Also on the needles is the Brea Bag.

I've never done a Norah Gaughan pattern before and this is going a bit slow for me. I'm using Red Heart Soft yarn in Cherry Red on size US9 needles. I don't know why it's going so slow, it just is. Hopefully I'll be done with it in the next few days.

I finished the Odessa hat a few days ago; I just havent had a chance to post a pic of it. Please ignore the bad hair day I'm having; hence the hat.

1st Day of School

Here's a pic of Aija, my daughter, on the first day of 2nd grade. Isnt she the cutest thing EVA?! I had to take the pic b4 she walked out of the door b/c I knew when she came home that shirt wouldn't be white anymore and I was right! LOL

Also on the needles is this...


the Odessa hat. You can find it on ravelry. I'm knitting it on us US6 needles with Debbie Bliss cashmere/cotton blend. 85% cotton and 15% cashmere. It's soft and shows stitch definition well. This is a beaded, fitted cap that I'm actually knitting without the beads. Lot's of these have been knit on Ravelry, too. I'm surprised I never saw this pattern b4 b/c I love fitted caps like these. I've made and bought lots of them. More pics to come soon.

Also on the needles is still the Cherry Bomb tank. I've stalled on this tank b/c I know the weather is changing and I wont be able to wear it b4 next summer. The other one I knit is out of an alpaca/wool blend (yea I know...a wool tank top?!) and I wear as a vest in the winter over a shirt. I think I'll do that with this one too at least until it's warm again.

Question of the Week #12

What is your proudest knitting moment??

When I finished my Clapotis. I had started it b4, but never got past the 1st section. I thought it was too hard for me to do. But since the Ravelmpics, I've tried tackeling some new things.

What is that one project that you’ve never been able to complete?

I still haven't done any intarisa or Fair Isle but I'm hoping that will all change soon.
