now you see it, now you don't

I've been ripping out more than I've been knitting lately. Here's the latest victim of frogging. Why I thought that thin cotton would look good in a skirt, I'm not quite sure. I tried it on last night and it looks just a wee bit tight on the bum (that's an understatement). Guess I should have figured that out before I got so far. That's a lot of sts folks! I think this yarn just doesn't want to be anything but a shawl, which is what it will be wrangled into next!

new items

I'm still waiting on my new computer; in the meantime I figured out that my camera is compatible with the hubby's computer. Finally, I'm downloading some photos of recent finished projects!

A little something for Michael, Andrew & Jude - the triplets. Mittens and a baby blanket I finished back in January.Ravel it

Circular shawl for no one in particular. Could be a shawlette or a baby blanket. Ravel it

Last, but not least, the garden is beginning to sprout. All the rain has turned certain parts of the yard into a jungle. The peony is just gorgeous this year. Should also be a good year for veggies. (The last photo is from Lewis Ginter, but I'm hoping that my Irises look like that next year!)

Sweater Reuse

I made this sweater for a friend's little boy about 3 years ago. Luckily, my friend was able to reuse the sweater for her new little girl! Isn't she cute!! So glad I made it in the great unisex color of green :)

photo monday

Yes, I'm sad I didn't go to MSW yesterday, but maybe next year. I have so much to knit out of the stash that I was worried I'd just buy more. In honor or MSW, here's an alpaca photo from last year! Happy Monday!
