projects finished ...

I have a number of little projects finished; one of which is the vest pictured in the previous post. It really turned out lovely! Here it is worn by my son:
 He looked so grown up wearing it, and the pants, tie and shirt were a perfect complement! (Even if I say so myself.)

I've been knitting hats and hope to have them posted on Etsy before too long. I'll probably start selling them at a "reduced" rate as an end-of-season kind of thing. Hopefully they'll sell. I have some finishing to do and buttons to purchase -- I like how they turned out. More on them when they're done and pictured.

Otherwise, just keeping my hands busy, busy, busy. It's a necessary component to keeping my sanity!

works in progress . . .

Ugh . . . it's been quite a while since I've had a chance to post. So, to get myself started again, I'm showing off some of my works in progress.

First, I'm setting up my Etsy store (link to come) and I have my Facebook page created and ready to go. Still need to set-up my Twitter account and then link everything betwixt and between! LOL. I hope to sell some of the things I've been working on, which have been fingerless gloves and hats. Below is a pic of one set of fingerless gloves made with Red Heart's TEAM SPIRIT brand of yarn that is 100% Acrylic and machine washable and dryable.

My next WIP is a vest that I've been knitting for my son. It's for a teen, pattern from Rowan, and made from Lion Brand Yarn WOOL-EASE worsted weight. It's also machine washable and dryable as a blend of lam's wool and easy-care acrylic. The colour in the picture looks purple, but the yarn colour in person is burgundy.

I have some other items I want to highlight, but I need to take more pics, so I'll get those together as soon as I can.
