Pictures & Stuff

Here is my newest project Rusted Root from ZephyrStyle. The yarn I'm using is Ty-Dy from Knit One Crochet Too. It's 100% cotton and works up nicely. I can't wait to see the full pattern of the yarn. So far I like it.

My Interweave Knits Nightie is coming along.

I'm on ball #2 and have bind-off the back stitches. I haven't decided if I want to wear it as a nightie only, or over t-shirts also. Maybe I'll do both.

Here's my next sewing project, that I just pulled out from my stash. I'm going to try and cut it out during the week. I love the pattern of the fabric. It's so me. Here's a close-up, it's music notes. Gotta love it.

I have to tell you about these stitch markers I got a while ago. They're made by Boye. I love them. The way they are made is that they can open and close. So if you forget to put them on, you don't have to work around to the spot, just slide it right on and snap into place. I also like them because they're big enough to add a charm if you want.

You also might want to check out Amazon. The prices on the knitting books are great right now. The book Knit2Together is only $5.50. Is that not crazy!!! Gotta love it!!

Love your Rusted Root so far! If you are really hoping for the puffy sleeves make sure to check out the Rusted Root KAL on Craftster, many people have ended up without them, so there are some mods on that board to keep the poof.

I love the nightie! Pretty color. The pattern is great because it really is versatile. Rusted Root is looking good too!

The rusted root is coming along nicely... love the color choice. The colors remind me of sand bottles.. at least that what we call them... Bottles filled with beautiful colors of sand creating layers of interesting colors. I just cast on circular needles in an attempt to follow the pattern for summertime tunic.. so far I'm liking the boye needles.
