First, here's a rare model shot of mySalt Peanuts sweater:
You may possibly notice that it's currently pinned closed with my darning needle. =)
This came out too big, and when I was making it I thought the body did seem too roomy, but I kept at it b/c I was too lazy to resize it. Lesson learned yet again, but at least this one isn't too SMALL to wear. The sleeves are too long but I don't mind that, I can roll them if they really bother me. I absolutely ADORE the yarn, Jo Sharp Silk Road Tweed. It softens up so much when you wash it and it creates a fabric that doesn't even seem knitted, it's almost felted together. And it's warm and soft. Possibly my new favorite yarn.
Next up, the Loopy scarf I designed for the shop:
Click for a detail shotThis is similar to the scarf in Nicky Epstein's new Knitting on the Edge book, it takes 4 skeins of String cashmere. It was a fun, quick project, only took about 5 hours including the finishing! Pattern is currently available in the store, will see about getting it online at some point.
And finally, the hat in this picture is the project I started yesterday for the shop:
This is sized for a two-year-old, and the other item will be a matching poncho. How cute is that!?!?
