finally . . .

for months i have mentioned my new lover - knitting.  finally i am ready to show it off.  behold:

the colorway of this yarn was 'electric blue', and it is.  i made the red/aqua barrette there to go with it, and it happens to be adorable either worn in the hair or attached directly to the scarf!  ridiculously cute, if i do say so myself.

this is a sky blue baby-sized hat with ties.  the ties are absurdly long, which is either cute . . . or absurd.

colorway: driftwood. yah, it's not very sexy sounding, but it has loverly blues and greens hiding in the brown.  again, i made a flower barrette to match.  

 this colorway is called 'fiesta', but i want to call it 'after my own heart'.  i wanted to make a coordinating barrette, but everything i tried to pair with it just seemed insignificant.

adult sized pom-pom hat.  adults secretly yearn for the days when pom-poms were appropriate.  i'm with toys-r-us on this one - 'i don't wanna grow up . . . "

this cowls is a darker grey, but not nearly as dark as it has photographed.  the coordinating barrette is made from an old fleece sweater, and it is stunning together.  i actually made a headband almost the exact same as this barrette because i love the contrast so much.

this is not nearly all of the things i've made recently, nor is it all the things i have knitted or photographed, or anything.  i have oodles and oodles to show off!

if you like anything you see, come by the ics craft fair in columbia, il this saturday - dec 4!  it will all be there.  otherwise, check out my etsy shop next week or get ahold of me!

Wow, these are gorgeous and you picked up knitting quickly if you've only been knitting a few months. Good for you!
