I can't remember if I shared this one, it's sort of old. It's a pattern I've done three times now, using Anzula with little sparkles in it.
This entrelac cowl is a made-up pattern using yarn that I spun myself. The color changes are all continuous on the yarn and it worked up really neat in this patchwork pattern.
This cowl turned out lovely! Jenn gave me this yarn for Christmas and I got two pieces out of it (previously I made a hat). The cables really pop with this yarn.
A surprise success! This sweater is made with cheap acrylic yarn, making it easy to wear and wash. The rich brown is flattering (though less red-toned in person) and I LOVE the pattern. I changed it to work for worsted weight (from fingering). Very wearable.

It's a bit warm for knitwear now, so I turned my eye to sewing. I have very basic sewing skills and haven't used my machine for anything but simple tailoring in the last few years. To start, I got the "Sailor Top" pattern from Fancy Tiger and made two versions.
Cute, modest, and easy! I want to make more, but need to stop for a while. Besides, my reward for sticking with sewing was to make this skirt:
Long and luscious, with a hip hugging yoke, I love how it turned out! This fabric was a mild splurge, but a good use of birthday money. Too bad I don't have any cash leftover to keep these shoes from Zappos. Sigh. I don't think I can justify $95 seafoam green sandals.
My only current project is a shawl to use up some stash yarn. I have three more queued in my mind though.
