First, I should mention that W was my June Stashbusters project. I haven’t technically finished my May project (the vest), although the knitting’s all done, so I feel justified in moving on. (Don’t worry, dear, I will finish it — I just need to get the buttons and the pocket material). I’m not sure what my next big stashbusting project will be, since I actually don’t have any more large amounts of yarn left — it’s all oddballs or small project amounts. I’ll be working on socks for Mark this summer (it’s the only wool knitting I can stand in the summer — and we have lots of yarn for socks to match his various sweaters). But I don’t know what I’ll do for myself… I may have to design some multi-coloured things, or maybe break down and get some more yarn. We’ll see!

I have also cleaned up and updated my sidebar, so it’s almost caught up. No major WIP’s, though.

And finally, pictures:


And a closer picture of just the top:


You’d think I could manage to get my necklace sitting right for a posed picture… or that my photographer would notice and tell me to correct it. Sigh. Clearly, I’m not knitting magazine model material…

And, because I love you all, I will share with you this ridiculous picture of me from the SnB last night, courtesy of Dani — I was being told to strike a “Sears Catalogue pose”. Note that my necklace, at least, is right in this one… Here you go.

Very cute! The Sears catalog pose is a classic.

I think you’re w is beautiful and you’ve got that asymmetrical look going :) Nothin’ wrong with that. If you need to buy some yarn..knitpicks has some nice Shine in beautiful colours. Mine is on it’s way. There is no duty charge which was my only hangup.

Oh that is a classic, I love it. One for the photo album. The top looks great!

BTW, if you are interested in buying some yarn, I have some stuff I could sell to you from my stash…… :)

The top looks really nice, great job. It flatters you.

I love the rich purple. Looks great!

Yes, much easier to see now. It’s very nice.

People tend to get annoyed with me when I take pictures because I’m also fixing them up, messing with their jewelry, etc. Hey I did school photography for a while, it’s habit.

Aven, your top is beautiful and that Sears pose, well it’s perfect. I’d give Sears a ring if you need extra income! ;)
