as promised, among these pics is one of my finished tammy sweater. i think it looks ok on me but i’m not as thrilled as i was with my first sweater. it just looked so much looser in the pattern book – and that’s what i wanted: a tapered waist but pretty big in the chest and arm parts. i like me a baggy sweater, yup i do. (hence, topsecret, yay!)
but first, the books that suckered me into joining crafters choice arrived yesterday, hooray. five little beauties – and i can’t decide which i like better. the finishing book will be darn practical – i know that’s at least partially why i still feel like such a beginning noob,
lastly, a co-worker the other day brought in this great book that you see here: knitted gardens. not only is there the pattern for this incredible knitted bed cover that you see on this pic (‘garden bed’, get it? hahaha..! ahem.) but there’s these gorgeously detailed gardens and cottages and whole towns and farms inside the book – as you can see here with my fav: this sweet little ol’ basket of veggies. my co-worker is so sweet – a great knitter herself, though she hasn’t knit in years, she offered to knit one of the gardens with me for my future-nieces/nephews-to-be that will
*oh yeah, forgot to mention: that sister of mine that adopted a beautiful baby in november? that same day she and her husband decided to adopt lovely kiyra, my sister went to the doctor’s and found out she was pregnant …. with twins. haahahhahaha, ::evil chuckle, rubbing knuckles:: revenge is so sweet – she was such a bossy tyrant when i was little (whereas i was an angel! ha.) so now is payback time, baybee.
